On Monday, we passed along word to you that the Pittsburgh Steelers had waived undrafted free agent nose tackle Anthony Rashad White, but according to the official league transaction sheet put out daily by the league, the 6-1, 335-pound, White was waived injured.
White has since cleared waivers and has now reverted to the Steelers injured reserve list as a result. He does not count against the 90 man roster.
We don\’t know the exact nature of the injury suffered by White and his stay on the Steelers injured reserve list will likely depend on the seriousness of his injury.
The Steelers might decide to pay White an injury settlement at some point if he is expected to be sidelined for more than a few weeks, so we will just have to watch the transactions moving forward to see what ultimately happens with him.
In 2012, White started 12 games at nose tackle for Michigan State and recorded 23 tackles (11 solo, 12 assists). He also was the recipient of the team\’s President\’s Award (senior lineman) for perseverance.
UPDATE: Bob Labriola said on Steelers Live that White showed up in very poor condition for rookie camp. Like I mentioned above, the official transaction shows him being waived injured and reverting back to the Steelers injured reserve list. Make of this what you will.
