The Pittsburgh Penguins made several roster moves Tuesday morning as they work on setting their lineup for the regular season.
The Steelers have trimmed their roster down to the league-mandated 53 players ahead of the start of the regular season, announcing the release of several players including running back Jonathan Dwyer and defensive lineman Alameda Ta’amu.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (93-7 THE FAN) — Head coach Mike Tomlin looks to avoid a winless preseason, but, more importantly, also looks to pare his roster down to the mandatory 53 players after the Steelers meet the Carolina Panthers at Bank of America Stadium at 7:30 on KDKA-TV.
LATROBE, Pa. (93-7 THE FAN) — Wednesday’s full-pad practice was perhaps the most uneventful one of training camp so far, and considering the Steelers are one of several teams affected by the recent rash of injuries around the NFL, that’s probably a good thing.
PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — The Steelers defeated the Carolina Panthers at Heinz Field, 17-16, Thursday night to wrap up the 2012 preseason, but at what cost?
PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — Steelers backup quarterback Charlie Batch is playing the waiting game as his coaches collaborate on final roster cuts this weekend, but is he playing it for the last time, at least in the foreseeable future?
