Report: Steelers Worked Out Former LB Stevenson Sylvester This Week

According to the National Football Post, the Pittsburgh Steelers worked out former linebacker Stevenson Sylvester this week.

Sylvester was released by the team prior to the start of the regular season after he recovered from an ankle injury suffered in the preseason opener against the New York Giants.

Sylvester, who was drafted by the Steelers in the fifth-round of the 2010 NFL Draft out of Utah, played all of 75 snaps of defense during his three season in Pittsburgh as he was relegated to mostly playing on special teams.

The Steelers might be down two special teams players this week against the New York Jets as safety Da’Mon Cromartie-Smith and linebacker Kion Wilson are both currently trying to battle through injuries suffered in the loss to the Minnesota Vikings.

We should know prior to Wednesday’s practice whether or not Sylvester was signed.
