NFL teams told camps will open July 28

With the Hall of Fame game canceled earlier in the day, there was some question when the Steelers would be permitted by the NFL to open their training camp.

According to NFL executive vice president Jeff Pash, teams have been told that start date will be July 28 for all teams, keeping them “on a normal schedule.”

Pash spoke to members of the media on a conference call Thursday, just a few hours after it had been announced the Pro Football Hall of Fame would not hold its annual kickoff to the preseason in early August, suspending both the game and the induction ceremony this year.

The Steelers had been scheduled to play the Cowboys in that game.

Now, their first preseason game is slated to be held Aug. 14 at Heinz Field against the Buccaneers, though that game also could be in jeopardy.
