Steelers Cut Tyler Palko, Promote Tyler Grisham, Hines Ward Practices

Charlie Batch is apparently well enough to serve as the Steelers third string quarterback, so the Steelers cut former Pitt quarterback Tyler Palko, so reports the Post-Gazette. Another Tyler at the Steelers South Side Complex got good news however, as the Steeler activated former undrafted rookie free agent wide receiver Tyler Grisham from their practice squad.

The Steelers made this move to give them a fourth wide out going into tonight’s game against Cleveland. In a bit of good news, Hines Ward, who injured his hamstring in the loss to Oakland, did practice.

Room for Redman?

The promotion of Tyler Grisham creates a spot on the Steelers practice squad. It will be interesting to see if they fill it by bringing back Isaac Redman, whom they cut last week.

It is also curious to see that the Steelers opted to promote Tyler Grisham from their practice squad in lieu of resigning Shaun McDonald, whom they cut prior to the Baltimore game to make room for Plako.
