Byron Leftwich will not get a chance to return from his broken left arm this season.
The Steelers placed Leftwich on injured reserve, ending his season. They also cut 21 more players, getting their roster to 58.
Perhaps most notable on the list: wide receiver Tyler Grisham, who seemingly had made a good impression. He’s a practice squad candidate. Jerricho Cotchery appears to be safe.
Here’s the full list of cuts: Baraka Atkins, Mario Harvey, Chris McCoy and Mortty Ivy, defensive lineman Corbin Bryant, defensive backs Brett Greenwood, Macho Harris, Donovan Warren and Da’Mon Cromartie-Smith, running backs James Johnson and John Clay, offensive linemen Colin Miller, Kyle Jolly, John Malecki, Trevis Turner and Keith Williams, wide receivers Armand Robinson, Wes Lyons and Tyler Grisham, tight end Jamie McCoy and kicker Swayze Waters.
Leftwich is set to be a free agent next year.
