The Steelers on Saturday placed punter Daniel Sepulveda on IR, replacing him with Jeremy Kapinos.
Sepulveda's name surprisingly came up on the injury list Friday as he was listed as questionbale with a knee injury to his plant leg.
The injury is to the same knee that cost him the final four games of the 2010 season and marks the third time in his career that he will end the season on IR.
Sepulveda was having his best season in 2011, averaging 46.1 yards per punt.
Kapinos replaced Sepulveda for the final four games and in the postseason in 2010, averaging 41.9 yards per kick.
