The Pittsburgh Steelers preseason injured reserve list already includes quite a few names as the team enters the second half of their 2016 training camp. However, that list of players decreased by one on Monday as according to the daily league transaction report, center Quinton Schooley has been waived from the team’s Reserve/Injured list with an injury settlement.
Schooley, who was signed originally as an undrafted free agent out of North Carolina State, was waived injured last Monday after suffering some sort of leg injury during the team’s first training camp practice. After clearing waivers, he then reverted to the team’s Reserve/Injured list.
When he signed, Schooley was given a $4000 signing bonus as part of his deal. One third of that amount will now go on the salary cap books this year as dead money with the remaining two-thirds carrying over to 2017.
With Schooley now gone, that leaves wide receiver Shakim Phillips, tight end Mandel Dixon, linebacker Kevin Anderson, running back Brandon Johnson and wide receiver Canaan Severin as the players still currently on the team’s Reserve/Injured list. However, there could be more injury settlements on the way for a few of these recently injured players.
