The FO has been trying for weeks to hold his roster spot in hopes of his returning for the playoffs. I guess they finally decided that they need a player, not just a warm body.
Smith could have played his last game in a Steelers uniform unless they take another chance next year for an under market value contract that could only net 3-4 games.

He might be resigned but I look at Max being out LT next year. Once the back starts up itll never end ask Kyle Turley.

Well, it's better than having a guy who can't play at all.

Steelers Place Marvel Smith on Reserve/Injured List;
Sign Offensive Tackle Jason Capizzi


PITTSBURGH — The Steelers made a roster move today by placing veteran offensive tackle Marvel Smith on their Reserve/Injured List.

Smith (6-5, 321), who was the Steelers’ second-round draft pick (38th overall) in the 2000 NFL Draft out of Arizona State, played the first five weeks of the 2008 season before suffering a back injury and was inactive the past 10 weeks. A nine-year veteran, Smith has played in 110 career games and made 107 starts. He made the Pro Bowl following the 2004 season, his first such recognition.

The Steelers signed second-year offensive tackle Jason Capizzi from the St. Louis Rams practice squad. He was signed to the Rams’ practice squad on Oct. 28 of this year after being released by the Steelers during training camp. In 2007, Capizzi spent time on the practice squads of the New York Jets, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Kansas City Chiefs before Pittsburgh signed him to its active roster for the AFC Wild Card Game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Guess they finally decided he wouldn't be ready to go at any point this season.

Please the guy was picked up from the practice squad of the 2nd worst team in the NFL. There's no way he push's our starters for a spot even as sad as they are.

He's just a healthy body, instead of keeping hope out for Smith's return.
