The Steelers made a number of roster moves today that included promoting linebacker Marshall McFadden to the active roster from the team’s practice squad. McFadden will wear No. 40.
McFadden spent the first 10 weeks of the 2012 season on the team’s practice squad. He originally was signed to the team’s offseason roster on January 18, 2012.
To make room for McFadden on the active roster, the Steelers placed linebacker Chris Carter on the team’s Reserve/Injured List with an abdominal injury. Carter saw action in eight games this season, making his first three career starts.
The Steelers also signed tight end Jamie McCoy to the team’s practice squad. McCoy will wear No. 80.
