Steelers Get Six Players Back from COVID-19 List

Published

on

The Pittsburgh Steelers activated all six players from their COVID-19 reserve list on Wednesday, meaning the team will be nearly full strength from an illness standpoint for the team’s regular season finale at Baltimore on Sunday.

Right tackle Zach Banner, inside linebacker Devin Bush, running back Anthony McFarland Jr., slot corner Arthur Maulet, inside linebacker Joe Schobert and defensive lineman Chris Wormley were all activated from the COVID-19 list on Wednesday.

The six players will be able to participate in Wednesday’s practice, the first of three sessions for the team on the short week coming off a win over the Cleveland Browns on Monday night.

The Steelers do still have two players impacted by the virus: practice squad defensive lineman Daniel Archibong and wide receiver Damion Willis.

The team’s roster now stands at 56 players. The Steelers will have a one-day roster exemption before they must clear three spots for Thursday.
