The first day of training at the Steelers training camp turned into a family affair for quarterback Mitch Trubesky.
As training begins Wednesday at St. Vincent’s College in La Trobe, Pennsylvania, Trubisky was visited by two of his favorite fans: his wife Hilary and their newborn son, Hudson David.

Trubsisky, who signed a two-year, $14.25 deal with the Steelers in March, worked with the first team on Wednesday, just as he did earlier this summer at the OTAs and junior camp. He is the favorite to be the team’s starter in week one, although he will be challenged by rookie Kenny Pickett and veteran Mason Rudolph.
“As far as I know, it will remain similar to what it was,” Trubesky said, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “I only take it one day at a time. If it was me and I kept leading this team and getting better every day, it would all work out.”
