The Pittsburgh Steelers have activated guard Danny Isidora ahead of their Monday Night Football matchup with the Cincinnati Bengals.
Isidora was signed by the Steelers off of the Kansas City Chiefs’ practice squad on Tuesday. In his fourth season out of the University of Miami, Isidora has played in 25 career games with six starts.
Elevating Isidora is intended to boost a Steelers offensive line significantly lacking depth at guard. Starter Matt Feiler was placed on injured reserve with a pectoral injury on Monday, while rookie Kevin Dotson is listed as out for tonight’s game in Cincinnati with a shoulder.
The Steeler also promoted linebacker Tegray Scales to the Active/Inactive roster from the practice squad.
Scales was signed to the Steelers practice squad on Nov. 11, and was elevated for last week’s loss in Buffalo. In addition to a previous stint with Pittsburgh last season, Scales has also spent time with Tampa Bay, Indianapolis and the Los Angeles Rams.
He signed with the Rams as an undrafted free agent out of Indiana back in 2018.
Pittsburgh released tight end Kevin Rader in a corresponding roster move as well.
Rader is a Pittsburgh native who attended Pine Richland high school, and has spent the last two seasons on the Steelers practice squad.
Rader was originally signed as an undrafted free agent out of Youngstown State by the Green Bay Packers in 2018.
