Default Cuts

EDIT: From the Steelers' website:

The Steelers have placed rookie linebacker Sean Spence on their Reserve/Injured List and released 20 others, reducing their roster to the league-mandated 53 players, the team announced today.
Spence suffered a left knee injury in the Steelers’ preseason finale against the Carolina Panthers and will miss the 2012 season.
Two veterans that have spent time with the Steelers who were released today are offensive lineman Trai Essex and punter Jeremy Kapinos (Waived/Injured List). Essex has played in 76 career games for Pittsburgh (28 starts) while Kapinos has been the team’s punter for most of the past two seasons.
The other 18 players released include defensive backs Damon Cromartie-Smith, Terrence Frederick and Josh Victorian, linebackers Brandon Hicks and Marshall McFadden, defensive linemen Corbin Bryant, Igbinosun Ikponmwosa and Jake Stoller, quarterback Jerrod Johnson, running back DuJuan Harris, wide receivers Tyler Beiler, Toney Clemons, David Gilreath, Marquis Maze and Derrick Williams, and offensive linemen Ryan Lee, John Malecki and Chris Scott.

I'm missing one name, unfortunately:

Sean Spence on IR.

Jeremy Kapinos
Trai Essex
Corbin Bryant
Jerrod Johnson
Tyler Beiler
Marquis Maze
Toney Clemons
David Gilreath
Derrick Williams
Damon Cromartie-Smith
Terrence Frederick
Josh Victorian
DuJuan Harris
Brandon Hicks
Marshall McFadden
Jake Stoller
Ikponmwosa Igbinosun
Ryan Lee
Chris Scott
John Malecki

Some notables:

They're keeping 4 WRs and 4 CBs, at least for now.

Robert Golden (despite getting injured) and Adrian Robinson made the team.

Kelvin Beachum beat out Trai Essex.

David Paulson also made the squad.

They will keep 3 quarterbacks.

Al Woods beat out Corbin Bryant, although the latter's practice squad eligibility surely played a role.

I just got this after they read off a list of names on the Steelers live at 4 show. I'm sure a proper list will be up shortly.

Any word on who will make the practice squad?

And Saunders is suspended and doesn't count against the 53 man roster until he returns. Paulson would likely be cut then.

I really hope Jerrod Johnson makes the practice squad. I love Batch and Leftwich but at some point you got to move on. I really do not see what people see in Leftwich at all. I never have. What has he contributed to this team other than getting hurt when it counts? Sure that isn't his fault but I don't care. In Jerrod Johnson you have a young talent who probably isn't going to get many looks around the league, not even for a backup role. I think he has promise to be a really solid backup to Ben one day. I hope he makes the practice squad.

Seems very ballsy to keep only 4 WR's on the active roster. I know they will probably add a couple to the PS but I would think you keep 1 of the guys not eligible for the PS?!

Looks like they're also keeping 9 LBs on the roster. Both Brandon Johnson and Adrian Robinson made the roster. Can't blame the Steelers though, that position has been absolutely gutted by injuries.

It's a number game - Steelers carrying players on the roster for other positions that cannot go in week one

But no worries - Colbert has Sweed's # on speed dial if anything happens to the WRs

the NFL needs to seriously consider expanding the roster sizes. round it off to 55 with a 9 man practice squad.
