PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The Steelers activated linebacker Ola Adeniyi to the team’s 53-man roster Saturday.
Adeniyi joined the Steelers as an undrafted rookie free agent out of Toledo after the 2018 NFL Draft.
The linebacker suffered a hamstring injury during the Steelers’ preseason finale game against the Carolina Panthers and was later placed on the team’s reserve/injured list.
Adeniyi was placed on the reserve injured/designated to return list on Nov. 21.
We have activated LB Ola Adeniyi to our 53-man roster.
To make room on the 53-man roster, we released LB Matthew Thomas.
