The Steelers have made a pair of roster moves on Thursday related to their injured reserve list.

Pittsburgh has activated safety Damontae Kazee off the list and placed kicker Christ Boswell on IR.

Kazee has been out with a forearm injury suffered in the preseason. He signed a one-year contract with Pittsburgh in free agency. Last season, Kazee recorded 52 total tackles, two interceptions, and a pair of forced fumbles in 17 games with Dallas.

Boswell is now out for the next four weeks with a groin injury. The Steelers signed kicker Matthew Wright off the Chiefs practice squad earlier this week, signaling Boswell would be out for a while.

Boswell has hit 12-of-16 field goals, all nine of his extra points, and sent 48 percent of his kickoffs for touchbacks in 2022.

Wright, who also filled in for Boswell for three games in 2020, hit 3-of-4 field goals and eight extra points in two games with Kansas City this season.

  1. Boswell is an excellent kicker, but he does seem to get dinged up quite a bit, for a kicker.

  2. I didn’t even know where to share this for a Matt Canada firing petition, so for now, I’m hoping a lot of folks see this here. Has anyone seen this stat? Longest touchdown yardage by team. Check out Pittsburgh. Ridiculous. (not including our Def TD)

  3. Don’t fire Canada until after season because it will give Tomlin a chance to promote someone from down the hall. Instead let QB coach Sullivan and WR coach Jackson put together a game plane and call plays. They have 31 years of coaching experience between them and at all cost keep Canada away from Kenny Pickett. Then do a thorough search outside (you hearing this Mike) for a qualified OC.
