The Steelers have officially placed tackle Zach Banner on the injured reserve list and signed tackle Jerald Hawkins.
Hawkins, 26, was the Steelers’ fourth-round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft and played five games for the team, including one start in three seasons. He missed the entire 2018 season with a quad injury and was traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers along with a 2021 seventh-round pick for a 2021 sixth-round draft pick on the eve of the 2019 season. He signed with the Texans this offseason and was waived on Sept. 5 in the team’s final cuts.
With the two moves, the Steelers roster remains at 53 players.
