    Final Cut list from Steelers.com

    http://news.steelers.com/article/94815/



    Batch on IR; 22 released
    Saturday, August 30, 2008

    PITTSBURGH ? The Steelers trimmed their roster to the 53-player limit today by placing one player on the Reserve/Injured List and releasing 22 others.



    Eleventh-year QB Charlie Batch was placed on the Reserve/Injured List after breaking his collarbone in the Steelersí preseason opener against the Philadelphia Eagles.



    Third-year LB Arnold Harrison was placed on the Waived/Injured List after injuring his left knee in the Steelersí preseason finale against the Carolina Panthers. The team also placed rookie LB Mike Humpal (neck) and rookie S Ryan Mundy (ankle) on the Waived/Injured List. Both players were selected by the Steelers in the sixth round of the 2008 NFL Draft.



    The Steelers released 18 other players from their roster today, including: LB Patrick Bailey, WR/KR Eddie Drummond, P Paul Ernster, FB Billy Latsko, OG Doug Legursky, OG Matt Lentz, CB Roy Lewis, S Grant Mason, DE Ryan McBean, OT Jeremy Parquet, DT Scott Paxson, DE Jordan Reffett, WR Willie Reid, WR Micah Rucker, TE Dezmond Sherrod, TE Lee Vickers, RB Justin Vincent and CB Travis Williams.



    Wide receiver Marvin Allen will be added to the Steelersí practice squad as part of the NFLís international player development program. All NFL teams may sign up to eight players to their practice squad beginning after 12 noon on Sunday, Aug. 31. The addition of Allen enables the Steelers to carry a ninth practice squad player.

    Nothing too shocking.

    I agree. That's a good thing, I think.

    I thought Roy Lewis had the team made. Hopefully, they get him on the PS.

    And at LB, after A. Harrison went down, they kept nine, including Keyaron Fox, Bruce Davis, Andre Frazier, and Donovon Woods?

    I thought Lewis had a chance of making the roster as well, but I think the team decided Madison would be a better fit due to Special Teams. I thought that he showed some good things as a gunner and I think that was the difference. Hopefully Lewis will make it to the PS.
