The team has placed OT Levi Brown and TE David Johnson on IR, and announced two signings to fill the available roster spots. Brown injured his right triceps during pregame warmups on Sunday. He missed the 2012 season due to an injury to that muscle. Johnson dislocated his left wrist early in the first quarter against the Jets.
To fill the available roster spots, the Steelers have brought up CB Isaiah Green from the practice squad and have signed TE Richard Gordon. Green has been on and off the practice squad this season. You can see his roster bouncing here- Isaiah Green. Richard Gordon is a 6′ 4″, 285 lb free agent tight end who was released by the Raiders in August. The former 2011 6th round draft pick played with Oakland for 2 seasons, and started in 2 out of the 27 games in which he was active. His stats- 2 yards in 2011, 9 yards in 2012 with 1 touchdown. He was targeted once in 2011, and 7 times in 2012. It looks like the team is standing pat at the tackle position…at least for now.
