Steelers Finalize Their Practice Squad

Alan Baxter

The Steelers have announced their eight players that will be on the practice squad. These are the players that will get beat up in practice during the week and never play on Sunday.

Offensive linemen Chris Hubbard
Offensive linemen Joe Long
Running back Alvester Alexander
Defensive lineman Brian Arnfelt
OLB Alan Baxter
OLB Terence Garvin
Defensive back Devin Smith
Wide receiver Justin Brown

None of these names are much of a shock, some felt that Brown was going to make the roster at wide out, Baxter had two sacks and a forced fumble in the four preseason games.

Alexander had 43 yards on 15 carries this preseason, but must have shown enough to make the squad.

There was a couple names I thought might make the squad, but didn’t, LB Marshall McFadden, CB Josh Victorian and OL Mike Golic Jr.

Matt Loede has been in the sports media for over 16 years, with experience covering the MLB, NBA, and NFL. On Sunday’s during football season, you can hear Matt on national networks like Fox Sports Radio, Associated Press, and others. Born and raised in Cleveland Ohio, Matt studies and talks football inside and out, and is anxious to share his thoughts and comments with readers on a daily basis.
