The Steelers waived/injured LB Jordan Zumwalt today. Zumwalt has battled the injury bug since last summer. The former UCLA linebacker spent last season on injured reserve. With the open roster spot, the Steelers claimed linebacker L.J. Fort off of waivers from New England.

Fort debuted with the Cleveland Browns in 2012 and played in every game that season. Since then, the veteran linebacker has only seen action in one game, and has been with several different teams. The Patriots waived Fort on Tuesday. He was with the team for 2 weeks.
