Steelers Activate TE David Johnson From PUP List Wednesday

The Pittsburgh Steelers got a tight end back on Wednesday as it was announced that David Johnson has been activated from the PUP list.

Johnson, who tore his ACL last year during the preseason, needed a cleanup procedure done prior to training camp and he has been sidelined since.

The timing couldn\’t be any better with David Johnson as he will hopefully be able to play a little fullback against the Kansas City Chiefs in an effort to give Will Johnson a few extra plays off. Will Johnson suffered a minor rib injury Monday night against the Washington Redskins, but has since said that he expects to play.

Now that David Johnson has been removed from the PUP list, only tight end Heath Miller and linebacker Sean Spence remain on it.
