The Steelers need some help on the offensive line. They’ll get some Sunday, sort of.
Matt Spaeth, regarded as one of the top blocking tight ends in the NFL, has been activated from the injured reserve list.
A third-round pick of the Steelers in 2007, he returned in 2013 via free agency after spending two seasons in Chicago. Spaeth suffered a foot injury in the preseason.
The addition of Spaeth to the active roster required a corresponding roster move. Tight end Richard Gordon has gotten the heave ho.
