Impostor fan in Troy Polamalu gear crashes Steelers practice

A Steelers fan dressed in full football gear managed to sneak past security to join the team on the field for Training Camp on Saturday afternoon.

According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the fan wore yellow football trousers, a yellow jersey and a helmet as he tried to take part in drills at the beginning of practice.

According to the Post-Gazette, Steelers players were able to quickly identify the fan - which is probably a good thing, as an average person would likely suffer pretty severe injuries just jumping into a full-fledged National Football League practice.

Before things got too far - and before the impostor might have gotten seriously injured - Steelers players recognized the stranger among them.

They might have been tipped off by the fact the fan was wearing Polamalu's old No. 43, which the Steelers have not used since Polamalu retired after 2014.

The fan, whose name remains unknown, was later escorted off the Saint Vincent College campus shortly before 4 p.m. ET.

The Steelers have not commented on the incident, and coach Mike Tomlin declined to respond to a question about it during his post-practice press conference.
