News: Mitchell (groin), who is on the PUP list, will likely miss the first week of practice, according to ESPN.com. Although the injury is not considered significant, it does cut into the on-field work Mitchell will get with strong safety Troy Polamalu, who didn't take part in OTAs. "I know the playbook very, very well and you've just got to get out there and practice and when I'm back, we'll be fine," Mitchell said. "When you've got one of the best safeties in the league to play with, your job isn't that hard." Impact: Mitchell signed a five-year, $25 million contract with the Steelers in March, and the team is looking to him to lead a youth movement on defense that also includes first-round draft pick Ryan Shazier, second round-round draft pick Stephon Tuitt, and fourth-round draft pick Shaquille Richardson. Having experienced leaders like Polamalu to mentor their younger counterparts could help Pittsburgh, who finished last season minus four in turnovers and gave up 30 or more points five times.(RotoWire, )
