Wide receiver Limas Sweed returned to the practice field with his Steelers teammates today after spending time on injured reserve last season for issues not related to an injury.
"I am excited to be back on the field and back in the locker room with my teammates," Sweed said in a statement issued through the ballclub before practice today. "I appreciate all the support I received from the Steelers organization while I dealt with some personal issues at the end of the 2009 season. I have been working diligently and I am focused on the remainder of the offseason in getting myself prepared to have a great 2010 season."
