Steelers make practice squad moves
The Steelers have signed eight players to their practice squad, all players who were with the team in training camp.
The eight players include offensive linemen Chris Hubbard and Joe Long, running back Alvester Alexander, defensive end Brian Arnfelt, linebackers Alan Baxter and Terence Garvin, defensive back Devin Smith and wide receiver Justin Brown.
Missing from that list is cornerback Terry Hawthorne, a draft pick this season who missed all of the offseason workouts and half of training camp with a knee injury.
Also not on the list is linebacker Marshall McFadden, who spent the entire preseason on the second team as an inside linebacker.
I would expect McFadden to be added to the roster when Matt Spaeth is placed on injured reserve later this week.
