We have placed DL Tyson Alualu on the Reserve/Injured List & promoted DL Henry Mondeaux from the practice squad to the 53-man roster.
— Pittsburgh Steelers (@steelers) September 20, 2021
Alualu suffered a fractured ankle in Week 2 and there’s a good chance he’s out for the rest of the season.
Alualu, 34, is a former first-round pick of the Jaguars back in 2010. He played out his rookie contract with the Jaguars before returning to the team on a two-year, $6 million contract in 2015.
He eventually departed Jacksonville in 2017 and agreed to a two-year, $6 million contract with the Steelers. Pittsburgh then re-signed him to another two-year deal.
In 2021, Alualu appeared in two games for the Steelers and recorded five total tackles and no sacks.
We will have more news on Alualu as it becomes available.
