The Pittsburgh Steelers placed offensive tackle Levi Brown and tight end David Johnson, according to Aaron Wilson. In the same tweet, Wilson reports Pittsburgh signing cornerback Isaiah Green and tight end Richard Gordon.
The Steelers only acquired Brown less than two weeks ago from the Arizona Cardinals for a conditional draft pick, but now have lost him for the year after he was injured during pre-game warmups last week.
With Brown being gone for the campaign, it appears Guy Whimper will be getting more playing time as Brown's primary backup.
Pittsburgh has lost a bevy of offensive talent between free agency and injuries this year. Wide receiver Mike Wallace left the Steel City to join the Miami Dolphins and running back Rashard Mendenhall went to the Cardinals. During this season, center Maurkice Pouncey tore his ACL in the season opener.
