Steelers Place LT Kelvin Beachum On I.R. & Sign OT Byron Stingily


The Pittsburgh Steelers have placed starting LT Kelvin Beachum on season-ending injured reserve on Monday after he suffered a torn ACL, per Bob Labriola.

  • The Steelers signed OT Byron Stingily to a contract to place Beachum.

Beachum, 26, had to be carted off the field with a left knee injury, and it appeared as though it was a serious injury. He is in the final year of his four-year, $2.146 million rookie contract, which includes a base salary of $1.542 million.

This season, Beachum has appeared in all five games for the Steelers and is rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 21 offensive tackle out of 75 qualifying players.

Stingily, 27, is a former sixth-round pick of the Titans back in 2011. He played out his four-year, $2,150,500 rookie contract with the Titans before signing a two-year deal with the team back in March.

However, Stingily was among their final roster cuts.

In 2014, Stingily appeared in 10 games for Tennessee. Pro Football Focus has him down for playing 248 snaps last season.
