Steelers remove Corbin Bryant from practice squad, add John Malecki, Jamie McCoy

Streeter Lecka

The Pittsburgh Steelers made more transactions Tuesday, adding John Malecki and Jamie McCoy to their practice squad while cutting Corbin Bryant.

The rotating door at the end of the Pittsburgh Steelers' practice squad continued, as the team cut Corbin Bryant for the second time in a few weeks while bringing back offensive lineman John Malecki and tight end Jamie McCoy as reported by Bob LaBriola.

Malecki had been released only three days ago, while McCoy had been released Oct. 16. Bryant himself had been signed on the 16th, released days later on the 20th, and re-signed on the 23rd.

The reasoning behind the steady string of repetitive transactions has to do with injuries and suspensions. Bryant had been added to the team to replace nose tackle Alameda Ta'amu, who was suspended for two weeks after a DUI. However, the team added Malecki for offensive line depth when Maurkice Pouncey was unable to play against Cincinnati. The team then cut Malecki to add Damon Cromartie-Smith to bolster the team's secondary before playing Washington. With Ta'amu back, Bryant is expendable.
