Steelers Add RB Chad Spann to the Active Roster

Waived with an injury settlement, Spann worked out for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on October 17 and was signed to their practice squad, where he spent a month before he was released. Spann joined the Steelers’ practice squad in the middle of December.

Linebacker Chris Carter (hamstring) has been placed on injured reserve to add Spann to the roster. The Steelers have also added running back Albert Young to the practice squad.
