Steelers Place RB Jeremy McNichols On IR, Sign RB Master Teague

Brooke Pryor reports that the Steelers have placed RB Jeremy McNichols on injured reserve with a shoulder injury and are signing undrafted RB Master Teague in his place.


McNichols, 26, is a former fifth-round pick of the Buccaneers back in 2017. He signed a four-year contract worth $2,663,788 with Tampa Bay but was, unfortunately, cut loose coming out of the preseason.

From there, McNichols had brief stints with the 49ers, Colts, Broncos, and Titans before signing on to the Jaguars’ practice squad last year. Jacksonville later promoted him to their active roster to close out the season.

The Titans re-signed McNichols to a contract in 2020 and eventually was signed to the practice squad before returning to the active roster ahead of last season. He had a brief stint with the Falcons earlier this offseason.

In 2021, McNichols appeared in 14 games for the Titans and rushed for 156 yards on 41 carries (3.8 YPC) to go along with 28 receptions for 240 yards receiving and one touchdown.
