The Steelers made a number of roster moves today that included promoting linebacker Marshall McFadden to the active roster from the teamís practice squad. McFadden will wear No. 40.

McFadden spent the first 10 weeks of the 2012 season on the teamís practice squad. He originally was signed to the teamís offseason roster on January 18, 2012.

To make room for McFadden on the active roster, the Steelers placed linebacker Chris Carter on the teamís Reserve/Injured List with an abdominal injury. Carter saw action in eight games this season, making his first three career starts.

The Steelers also signed tight end Jamie McCoy to the teamís practice squad. McCoy will wear No. 80.
