As expected, Steelers starting defensive end Aaron Smith went on injured reserve today and is out for the duration of the 2009 season. Smith will have surgery on Friday to repair a torn rotator cuff.
As expected, the Steelers resigned 2009 7th round draft pick Sunny Harris from the Carolina Panther's practice squad. Smith will be replace by Nick Eason, Travis Kirschke, and 2009 first round pick Ziggy Hood.
