Pittsburgh Steelers WR Keilahn Harris

The Pittsburgh Steelers have cut ties with an injured member of their squad, releasing wide receiver Keilahn Harris on Tuesday with an injury settlement, according to the NFL transactions page.

The Steelers waived Harris with an injury designation at the start of OTAs last week. Harris cleared waivers and reverted to the Steelers injured reserve list. By releasing him, the Steelers will allow Harris to sign with another team, once he returns to full health.

The Steelers will pay Harris a prorated portion of his salary, which will cover the amount of time he is expected to miss.

A second year pro out of Oklahoma Baptist, Harris was injured before the Steelers’ rookie minicamp after the 2024 NFL draft, and was not healthy for the start of OTAs. His release came shortly after the Steelers had signed veteran wide receiver Scotty Miller.

Removing Harris from the injured reserve list will not impact the team’s active roster, which has two vacant spots.

The 23-year-old Harris went undrafted out of Division-II Oklahoma Baptist in 2023 and was signed by the Atlanta Falcons. He had seven receptions last preseason.

He spent one week on the Atlanta practice squad last October, before being placed on the injured reserve list. Pittsburgh signed Harris to a future contract in January.
