The Pittsburgh Steelers officially signed OT Matt Feiler to their practice squad and placed OT Austin Shepherd on waivers.
The Steelers’ practice squad now consists of:
- DL Johnny Maxey Jr
- WR Demarcus Ayers
- TE Rashaun Allen
- DE Caushaud Lyons
- LB Travis Feeney
- RB Daryl Richardson
- DB Jacob Hagen
- OT Matt Feiler
- RB Karlos Williams
- DB Al-Hajj Shabazz
Feiler, 24, originally signed on with the Texans as an undrafted free agent out of Bloomsburg back in May of 2014. He lasted just over a year in Houston before signing on to the Steelers’ practice squad at the start of last season.
The Steelers elected to bring Feiler back on a future/reserve contract this past January but he was cut loose coming out of the preseason. Pittsburgh added him to their practice squad before calling him up a few weeks ago.
Feiler was placed on waivers earlier in the week.
In 2016, Feiler has been active for one game.
