Steelers Place QB Dennis Dixon On IR;
Sign Defensive Tackle Steve McLendon
To Active Roster

                                                                                                      

PITTSBURGH The Steelers made a roster move today when they placed third-year quarterback Dennis Dixon on the Reserve/Injured List with a knee injury. Dixon suffered the knee injury in the Steelers’ Week 2 victory at Tennessee.

 

Dixon started each of the first two games of the 2010 season and led the Steelers to back-to-back victories. In those two games, he was 22-of-32 (68.8 pct.) for 254 yards with one interception (79.4 passer rating). Dixon also rushed five times for 32 yards (6.4 avg.).

 

In four career games, including three starts, Dixon is 35-for-59 for 402 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions (71.4 passer rating).

 

The Steelers signed defensive tackle Steve McLendon (6-4, 300) from their practice squad to the active roster to replace Dixon. McLendon was originally signed as an undrafted rookie free agent in April, 2009. He spent a portion of the 2009 season on the practice squad and saw his first NFL action in Week 2 of this year at Tennessee. McLendon finished with one tackle and a fumble recovery in his NFL debut against the Titans.
