The injuries in the Pittsburgh Steelers secondary forced the team, to make a roster move on Tuesday as veteran cornerback Justin King was signed to the 53 man roster.
King, a Penn State product, had worked out for the Steelers a few weeks ago after Ike Taylor suffered his right ankle injury.
King was originally drafted by the St. Louis Rams in the fourth round of the 2008 draft and played for the Indianapolis Colts earlier this season prior to his release.
The have suffered injuries to not only Taylor, but starters Cortez Allen and Keenan Lewis aswell. Allen sat out the game Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys while Lewis injured his groin in the second half.
There is no word of a corresponding roster move as of yet but the Steelers are expected to place either guard Willie Colon and cornerback DeMarcus Van Dyke on injured reserve today if not both.
