Steelers Vs. Broncos: Mike Wallace Uncertain Of Status, Prepares For Denver

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace practiced for the first time on Monday after his lengthy holdout. The restricted free agent missed the first month of training camp and finally signed his $2.7 million tender offer last Tuesday.

Wallace is happy to be back playing football, via Steelers.com's Teresa Varley:

"It feels good to be back with my teammates and be out there just learning the offense. I like where I'm at, but I still have a way to go. It's fun being with these guys. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else."

Wallace stayed on the field after most of his teammates headed in to the locker room, getting in some extra work and playing a little bit of catch-up for the time he missed.

Wallace added that he has not been informed yet about his status for Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos:

"I don't think they're going to tell me," said Wallace. "I just go where the coaches tell me to go. I'm just happy to be out there so I'll run all day until they tell me to come off. I don't have a problem with that. I need the extra work anyway."

During his holdout, Wallace studied Pittsburgh's playbook. He also worked with receivers coach Scottie Montgomery last over the weekend in an effort to get acclimated.
