    Steelers waiver wire and practice squad news

    The 24-hour deadline for clearing waivers after yesterday's 6pm cuts is approaching quickly, and things seem to be heating up. There have been two claims of former Steelers announced thus far, and we'll be updating this post as more news becomes available.

    First off: according to Adam Schefter, Kraig Urbik has been claimed off waivers by the Buffalo Bills. The Steelers were probably hoping to sign him to the practice squad, so it'll be interesting to see if he sticks with the Bills, or ends up coming back a la Sunny Harris last year.

    The AP is reporting that LB Patrick Bailey has been claimed by the Tennessee Titans, where he'll join Nate Washington and Chris Hope - is it too early to start calling Tennessee the Steelers Midwest?

    UPDATE: thanks to dru_dead for this tip: insidepittsburghsports is reporting that Frank Summers has been signed to the practice squad. This is according to "a league source", so treat this one as unconfirmed for now.

    UPDATE 2: Adam Schefter reports that Stefan Logan has been claimed by the Detroit Lions - he made it all the way to the second team with a chance at him.
