Steelers Cut 21 Players; Place QB Leftwich on Injured Reserve

The Steelers started to take care of business when it came to cuts on Friday, as the team said “good-bye” to 21 players and moved quarterback Byron Leftwich to injured reserve, which ends his season. The roster stands at 58 players, and they will still need to remove five more players to get their roster down to 53.

Here’s the 21 players gone:

RB John Clay
RB James Johnson
WR Wes Lyons
WR Tyler Grisham
WR Armand Robinson
TE Jamie McCoy
G Colin Miller
G Keith Williams
C John Malecki
T Trevis Turner
T Kyle Jolly
CB Donovan Warren
CB Macho Harris
S Da’Mon Cromartie-Smith
S Brett Greenwood
DE Corbin Bryant
LB Mario Harvey
LB Mortty Ivy
LB Baraka Atkins
LB Chris McCoy
K Swayze Waters

Williams becomes the first 2011 draft pick to be shown the door. As of now, the rest of the picks remain.
