Steelers bring up defensive end Brian Arnfelt from practice squad


The Steelers added some defensive line depth on Saturday, signing rookie end Brian Arnfelt from their practice squad.

Arnfelt (6-4, 298) signed with the Steelers as an undrafted free agent out of Northwestern in April. He has been on the club’s practice squad all season.

The Steelers have some injury issues at defensive end. Brett Keisel (foot) has been ruled out for Sunday’s game vs. Cincinnati, while Ziggy Hood (ankle) is probable.

With Arnfelt joining the roster, the Steelers waived inside linebacker Kion Wilson, who appeared in seven games and made two early-season starts for Pittsburgh.
