Steelers offensive lineman Anthony Coyle was released from the injured reserve list with an injury settlement, according to the NFL transactions page.
Coyle was placed on waivers with an injury designation on Aug. 4, cleared waivers, reverted to the injured reserve list, and then released on Aug. 10.
The Steelers will no longer retain his rights and Coyle is free to sign with another team as soon as he is healthy instead of being forced to spend at least eight weeks on the Pittsburgh IR.
The Steelers signed Coyle as a street free agent after the folding of the XFL in April 2020. He spent 2020 on the team’s practice squad and was elevated from the Steelers’ practice squad to the active roster three times as a reserve guard/tackle, but did not appear in a game. He re-signed with the team in 2021.
