    Default Steelers now need two practice squad players

    Steelers now need two practice squad players

    The Steelers now need to not only replace Steve McClendon on their practice squad, they have to find a replacement for Al Woods as well at least according to one report.

    Woods, according to the report. was signed by the Tampa Bay Bucs off the Steelers practice squad, leaving the Steelers short on defensive linemen with Aaron Smith out indefinitely.

    Woods, however, was seen in the Steelers' practice facility today - though that could have been to clean out his locker here.

    Expect the team to sign at least one defensive lineman today.

    UPDATE: The Steelers just signed outside linebacker Chris Ellis to the practice squad. Ellis, a Virginia Tech product, was with the Bills in training camp.

    UPDATE II: The Steelers have signed Sonny Harris to replace Woods on their practice squad.

    [HIGH-LIGHT][/HIGH-LIGHT] The line of the day came from Cincinnati head coach Marvin Lewis when asked about Randy Moss being available.

    At first Lewis declined to comment. But when told he could have a "triple threat" at wide receiver with Moss, Terrell Owens and Chad Ocho Cinco, Lewis, without missing a beat replied, "I don't have enough bullets for my gun."

    [HIGH-LIGHT][/HIGH-LIGHT] Ben Roethlisberger admitted today to being a "little nervous" about calling a QB sneak on the goal line because New Orleans had a big nose tackle and rookie center Maurkice Pouncey was working on a silent count.

    I guess that Ben's time away from the team didnt help him recognize Pouncey's dicipline and physical tools???... Pouncey has been played to a probowl caliber in, this, his rookie season! Let's let the kid play!!! "Big NT?" -really??? This guy has been the most solid player on the line thus far, with the exception of Flozell!!! and there is a HUGE gap in experience there!

    many people speculated that DE Doug Worthington would be re-signed, but he chose to sign with the Tampa Bay Bucs instead.
