The Steelers have activated inside linebacker Ulysees Gilbert II from the injured reserve list and placed injured inside linebacker Robert Spillane on the list.

Gilbert has been out since Nov. 4 with a back injury and just returned to practice this week.

Spillane suffered a knee injury on Monday evening against Washington. He’ll have to miss at least three weeks while on injured reserve. Spillane had already been ruled out for his Sunday’s game at the Buffalo Bills.
