Steelers swap pass rushers on 53-man roster




 

The Pittsburgh Steelers called up outside linebacker Derrek Tuszka from the practice squad last week less than two days before its game with the Cincinnati Bengals. Tuszuka showed enough on Sunday against Cincinnati that the team has decided to keep Tuszuka on the 53-man roster and waive fellow outside linebacker Jamir Jones.

Mostly likely, if Jones clears waivers, the Steelers will sign him back to the practice squad to replace Tuszuka there. Tuszuka played his college football at North Dakota State University. The second-year pro had two tackles on Sunday as the Steelers continue to deal with injuries at outside linebacker.
