CB Taylor, RB Archer at Steelers' OTAs
By Scott Brown
PITTSBURGH -- Cornerback Ike Taylor and running back Dri Archer are among the players practicing today in the first of the Pittsburgh Steelers' organized team activities this week.
Taylor didn't take part in the three OTA sessions last week because he was training at Tom Shaw Performance Camp at Walt Disney World. Archer, the Steelers' third-round pick, missed the three voluntary practices because he was sick and then had to attend a mandatory NFL Players Association event in Los Angeles.
Tight end Matt Spaeth, who worked out on the side last week, is also practicing while outside linebacker Jason Worilds has been doing some running on the side. Worilds hasn't practiced since last Tuesday.
Strong safety Troy Polamalu isn't at OTAs, and the eight-time Pro Bowler isn't expected to practice with the Steelers until mandatory minicamp in a couple of weeks. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger isn't practicing with the team Tuesday after taking part in all three OTA sessions last week.
The Steelers will hold two more voluntary practices this week and then wrap up OTAs next week with four practices.
