The Steelers announced they have designated OL Stefen Wisniewski to return from injured reserve.
#Steelers OL Stefen Wisniewski (chest) will practice today but remains on the Reserve/Injured List. The team has 21 days to activate Wisniewski to the 53-man roster. If he is not activated during that period, he cannot return to the active roster for the rest of the 2020 season.

This opens a 21-day window for Wisniewski to practice with the team before Pittsburgh has to make a decision about placing him on the active roster.
Wisniewski, 31, is a former second-round pick by the Raiders back in the 2011 NFL Draft out of Penn State. He finished out his rookie contract and signed a one-year deal with the Jaguars in 2015.
After finishing his deal in Jacksonville, Wisniewski signed a one-year deal with the Eagles and returned to Philadelphia on a three-year, $9 million extension. Philadelphia later declined his team-option for 2019 before re-signing him to a one-year, $1.5 million contract.
From there, the Eagles cut Wisniewski loose and he eventually signed on with the Chiefs for the 2019 season. The Steelers added him on a two-year contract this past March.
In 2019, Wisniewski appeared in all 11 games for the Chiefs, making two starts. Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 16 guard out of 80 qualifying players.
