The Pittsburgh Steelers cut down to 53 players on Friday and now we will examine the numbers by position starting with the defense
Nose tackles (3) – Pretty easy here. Look for Alameda Ta\’amu to be on the inactive list for quite a while.
Defensive ends (4) – The only question was if the fourth would be Al Woods or Corbin Bryant. Woods got the spot so look for Bryant to land on the practice squad.
Linebackers (9) – The injury to Sean Spence Thursday night allowed Adrian Robinson to make the roster, at least for now. Once Stevenson Sylvester, James Harrison and Jason Worilds get to 100%, Robinson could be off to the practice squad.
Cornerbacks (4) – One less than I thought they would carry, but as long as all four remain healthy, that\’s all they will need to dress.
Safeties (5) – With Ryan Clark down for the opener, they had to carry a 5th. That 5th was Robert Golden, so his hamstring must be good to go. Now that Golden has made it, how long can he stay on it?
