The Pittsburgh Steelers have announced they’ve signed a pair of players to their practice squad today. They’ve added LB Matt Galambos and WR Justin Thomas. OT Jake Rodgers was released in a corresponding move.
We have added WR Justin Thomas and LB Matt Galambos to our practice squad, and released OL Jake Rodgers from our practice squad.

The Galambos news was reported by his agent last night. Thomas was cut to allow Rodgers onto the practice squad last week. But with the offensive line seemingly healthier, it’s hopeful Marcus Gilbert plays this week and this roster move is a positive sign of that, he’s no longer needed.
All three players were with the team in the preseason. Galambos and Rodgers were there from the beginning, Galambos a UDFA and Rodgers signed to a futures deal while Thomas was a late addition. Thomas is converting from QB to WR.
Because the Steelers called up L.J. Fort from the practice squad on Saturday, they had an open spot, meaning they had to release just one player. Their practice squad is now full.
