The Pittsburgh Steelers have elevated guard Rashaad Coward and running back Trey Edmunds from the practice squad for Monday’s game against the Cleveland Browns, the team announced Monday afternoon.
Coward’s activation comes as the team deals with limited depth on the interior of the offensive line. Starting center Kedrick Green is questionable to play with a calf injury. J.C. Hassenauer, who was the top interior backup last week in Kansas City, will step in for Green if he cannot play, with Coward backing up at guard.
Starting left guard Kevin Dotson has not yet returned from a high ankle sprain and right guard Trai Turner has been battling a minor knee injury.
This will be Coward’s third game on the active roster for the Steelers, and the second time as a standard practice squad elevation.
Edmunds was also activated for the Kansas City game as a COVID-19 replacement. He played 11 snaps, all on special teams,
