Steelers activate Wisniewski

The Steelers activated guard Stefen Wisniewski from the reserve/injured list on Wednesday.

Wisniewski was placed on the list after suffering a pectoral injury against the New York Giants in the season opener, a game where he started at right guard because David DeCastro was injured at the time.

Wisniewski, who signed with the team this offseason as an unrestricted free agent, returned to practice on Oct. 14 and the team had 21 days to activate him or keep him on the reserve/injured list all season.

Wisniewski, who played at Penn State, was originally selected by the Oakland Raiders in the second round of the 2011 NFL Draft. He spent four seasons with the Raiders, before signing with the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2015, where he spent one season. He spent the next three seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles (2016-18), a starter on the Super Bowl LII team. Last season he played for the Kansas City Chiefs and was a starting on the Super Bowl LIV team.

To make room for Wisniewski on the roster the team place linebacker Ulysees Gilbert on the reserve/injured list with a back injury. This is the second straight year he has been placed on the list.
