Steve McLendon Signed Back To Practice Squad After Clearing Waivers
As expected, the Steelers signed defensive tackle Steve McLendon back to the practice squad Monday morning after he cleared waivers following his release on Friday. McLendon was signed off the practice squad for the second time before the week 4 Ravens game as veteran backup nose tackle Chris Hoke was forced to miss the game with a MCL knee sprain. McLendon was active for th e Ravens game, but did not play any snaps on defense this time up. He only contributed on special teams in week 4 as starting nose tackle Casey Hampton took all of the snaps at nose tackle in non nickel defense formations.
