Morgan Burnett, Bud Dupree top injured list at Steelers minicamp

Safety Morgan Burnett confirmed he did not take part in the first day of minicamp Tuesday because of injury. The veteran offseason acquisition downplayed the significance of the undisclosed injury, though, saying he “was fine.”

Jordan Dangerfield was taking first-team reps in Burnett’s place during the first of three mandatory minicamp practices at UPMC Rooney Sports Complex.

Only three players on the roster have more NFL experience than Burnett, who spent his previous eight seasons with the Green Bay Packers.

Outside linebacker Bud Dupree said he took reps in 7-on-7 drills Tuesday but that he had aggravated a shoulder injury last week during organized team activities.

Training camp opens July 25.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
