Steeleres Promote DL Corbin Bryant From Practice Squad

With nose tackle Chris Hoke likely out Sunday, the Steelers have promoted defensive lineman Corbin Bryant from the practice squad today, according to Mark Kaboly, before traveling west to face the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. Hoke is listed as doubtful on the Friday injury report and the Steelers were faced with only having four healthy defensive lineman in the form of Steve McLendon, Brett Keisel, Ziggy Hood and rookie Cameron Heyward.

Bryant spent the preseason with the Steelers after being signed as an undrafted free agent out of Northwestern and was signed to the Steelers practice squad following the final roster cutdowns.

There is no word who was waived from the 53 man roster to make room for Bryant, but odds are it was offensive lineman Jamon Meredith. We should get word of that transction shorty.

I am, I'm me. 40 something, retired and a life long Steelers fan.

    Practice squad is so stupid why don’t the NFL let you have 61 players so you don’t have to cut a player. This way you can build your team the way you want to.

    Dave…what is your thoughts on Corbin…I didnt see anything special out of him in preseason.

    He had his moments, but jury still out on him. Reportedly looked good in camp practices, but never splashed in games in limited time. They liked him enough to keep on the practice squad, so you never know. Not much tape on him, but I am going back tonight to watch some.

    I’m more excited to see what McLendon can do. This is a big game for him. Hampton along with A.Smith probably won’t be back next year so we have to start looking at the future of our D-Line.
