    Steelers make roster moves, activate DeCastro

    Steelers make roster moves

    Nov. 26,2012

    Steelers Activate David DeCastro and Promote John Malecki to Active Roster; Place Marcus Gilbert on Reserve/Injured List and Release David Gilreath.

    The Steelers have activated offensive guard David DeCastro from the Reserve/Injured; Designated to Return List and also promoted offensive lineman John Malecki to their active roster, the team announced today.

    DeCastro was placed on the list after suffering a knee injury during Pittsburgh’s Week 3 preseason game at Buffalo. He was the Steelers’ first-round selection (24th overall) in this past year’s NFL Draft.

    For the second time this season, the Steelers promoted Malecki to their active roster. Earlier this year prior to the team’s Week 7 game at Cincinnati, he was signed to Pittsburgh’s active roster. He was then released the following week and signed back to the practice squad. Malecki will wear No. 62.

    The Steelers placed offensive tackle Marcus Gilbert on the Reserve/Injured List with an ankle injury. He started the first five games of the year before suffering the ankle injury against the Tennessee Titans (Week 5). He has not played since that matchup against the Titans.

    The Steelers also released wide receiver David Gilreath, who was signed to the team’s active roster before the Week 10 game against the Kansas City Chiefs. He was active for the past three games but did not record a catch.

    hmmmmm....., well I suppose that if DeCastro is ready to rock, then this is a good decision. If Adams isn't ready to go, then I suppose we could kick Foster out to RT and let DeCastro play his natural position at RG. Any word on Whiffy Colon's status?

    What happened to Gilbert? There was no indication early on that his injury was potentially season ending...

    I think he played his way out of a job.

    I tend to agree with that. He put enough other people on IR that they went ahead and put him there too. They need to keep the first rounder healthy this time.

    They determined he was too much of an injury risk to the other players on the team...

    I am looking at the bright side of the Gilbert IR, no chance for him to flop onto another lineman's legs and causing a season ending injury to an already depleted line.

    Maybe Ben said he wouldn't come back unless they stuck Gilbert on IR.

    Maybe DeCaStro gave the FO an ultimatum.
