|Taylor Lewan answered the biggest question for the Tennessee Titans heading into training camp by showing up for work along with the rest of his teammates.
How long it takes to get a new contract for the two-time Pro Bowl left tackle remains to be seen.
General manager Jon Robinson said they're making good progress Marcus Allen Jersey , even if he isn't ready to say when that might be wrapped up.
"It's good to have him back," Robinson said Wednesday after the Titans reported for camp. "I know that our coaches are excited to work with him and had really good discussions over the last 24 hours with his representation and nothing's finalized. But I would say we're certainly headed in the right direction."
Robinson said contract talks had been going on the past couple days and ramped up Tuesday night.
"I'd say we've made really good progress and that's about all I can really comment on that for now," Robinson said.
With the Titans firing Mike Mularkey in January after the franchise's first playoff victory in 14 years, Lewan took part in the team's voluntary offseason program with new coach Mike Vrabel . Then Lewan skipped the mandatory minicamp in June over a lack of progress in contract talks.
The left tackle is due $9.34 million this season after Tennessee picked up the fifth-year option for the 11th selection overall out of Michigan in the 2014 draft. He has started 53 of 58 games, including every game the past two seasons, protecting quarterback Marcus Mariota's back. Lewan, who turned 27 last weekend, is younger than Nate Solder who became the league's highest-paid offensive lineman in March with a four-year, $62 million deal from the New York Giants.
Lewan and the rest of the Titans showed up on Wednesday for the start of training camp, joining quarterbacks Tom Rathman Jersey , rookies and injured players who started last weekend.
The left tackle was not among the handful of players made available to reporters Wednesday. Veteran linebacker Brian Orakpo, going into the final season of his contract, was glad Lewan reported since that means both sides must be talking again.
"I know what he brings to the table, so hopefully I mean stuff can get done and we can play ball and move forward," Orakpo said. "Nobody really wants to be worried about contract situations when we're trying to be you know coming together as a team. And they understand that, Taylor understands this so hopefully get it done sooner than later."
The Titans already are without right tackle Jack Conklin, who was placed on the physically unable to perform list last weekend. Conklin tore his left ACL in the Titans' divisional playoff loss to New England , and Vrabel had no timetable for Conklin's return.
Vrabel said Lewan is in great shape along with the rest of the offensive line. Center Ben Jones said it was good to have everybody in and ready to work, a credit to Lewan's work ethic.
"We're a band of brothers," Jones said. "We want us all out there at all times and that's all we do is go out there and grind every day. Taylor's the lead guy he's a guy we can put our hat on. You know he's going to work hard every day."
Vrabel said all the Titans passed the running test Nathan Peterman Jersey , but veteran wide receiver Rishard Matthews still is being evaluated. Matthews was sidelined during the offseason program with an unspecified injury.
"When he's ready, he'll be out there," Vrabel said.
NOTES: Robinson said he met Tuesday with Kevin Dodd before the Titans released the outside linebacker. Dodd was the 33rd selection overall out of Clemson in 2016 and the second player Robinson drafted in his first year as general manager. "I take full responsibility for that one. I've got to do a better job scouting moving forward," Robinson said. The move leaves the Titans at 89 players, and Robinson said they are looking to fill that spot.
The Pittsburgh Steelers plan to get a closer look at their two most recent draft picks at quarterback.
Rookie third-round pick Mason Rudolph and Josh Dobbs, Pittsburgh's fourth-round selection in 2017, will see all of the playing time when the Steelers visit the Green Bay Packers for their second preseason game on Thursday.
"They're going to play exclusively," Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said. "(We) haven't detailed the division of labor, but those two guys will be featured."
On Tuesday, Tomlin ruled out veterans Ben Roethlisberger and Landry Jones for the game. The announcement came before Roethlisberger left Tuesday's training camp practice with a possible concussion.
"Ben Roethlisberger sustained a hit today in practice Cris Carter Jersey ," Tomlin said through a team spokesman after practice. "He is being evaluated as part of the concussion protocol."
Roethlisberger was face down on the turf, surrounded by his teammates, after throwing a touchdown pass to JuJu Smith-Schuster during a best-of-seven competitive 2-point conversion drill between the offense and defense.
Roethlisberger was helped to his feet and sat on a water cooler with a towel over his head as practice continued. He touched his head several times and eventually walked off the field under his own power with trainers and team doctors.
Right guard Marcus Gilbert said Roethlisberger rolled out and ran into him as he blocked linebacker Keion Adams.
"It didn't look too pretty," Gilbert said. "But when he got up he seemed to be a little bit better. That's my guy. I wouldn't want to see anything happen to him, especially in a practice like this."
Center Maurkice Pouncey was optimistic about Roethlisberger's injury.
"No one really saw it, but I think he hit his head," Pouncey said. "We were all in a nervous situation, but he got up fine, he looked totally good, and he walked off the field."
Tomlin praised Roethlisberger's work at training camp Tuesday morning.
"He's been really sharp Tevin Coleman Jersey , not only in terms of what he does, but just how he's communicating and helping in aiding the development of some people that are going to work alongside him," Tomlin said. "It's been a very positive experience."
Rudolph and Dobbs both ended practice with touchdown passes during the two-minute drill. Rudolph, the former Oklahoma State star, said he is anxious to see additional playing time on Thursday.
"I'm going to be preparing to play well and execute our plan," Rudolph said. "We have a great plan for Green Bay, and whenever my number's called, I plan to go out and execute."
Tomlin also announced Tuesday that outside linebacker Bud Dupree is out of concussion protocol and will play Thursday against Green Bay. Dupree practiced in full on Tuesday for the first time since sustaining his concussion on Aug. 3.
