Steelers Place Aaron Smith On Injured Reserve
We now know the second half of the transaction of Corbin Bryant being promoted to the active roster as veteran defensive end Aaron Smith has been placed on injured reserve with his foot injury thus ending his season and perhaps career. 2011 was slated to be the final year under contract for Smith, but he restructured prior to the signing of Max Starks and an extra year was added.
Smith played in just 7 games last year before being shelved with a triceps injury and made it just 5 games the season before. He seriously injured his foot this season against the Texans back in week 4 and has been sidelined since.
