The Pittsburgh Steelers made a few transactions on Tuesday and one was a bit of a surprise.
The team signed tackle Brian Mihalik to their 53-ma active roster off of the practice squad of the Detroit Lions. Mihalik had been with the team during training camp but a knee injury suffered during a preseason game resulted in him being waived injured. After reverting to the team’s Reserve/Injured list, Mihalik was waived again with an injury settlement.
To make room for Mihalik, tackle Matt Feiler was waived.
The Steelers also signed cornerback Al-Hajj Shabazz back to their practice squad on Tuesday. Shabazz had been waived from the 53-man roster on Saturday in order to make room for wide receiver Cobi Hamilton, who had been promoted from the practice squad.
