Steelers elevate two for Packers game

The Steelers elevated wide receiver Cody White and offensive tackle Chaz Green to the Active/Inactive roster from the practice squad ahead of Sunday's game against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field.

White was also activated for last Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals, finishing with two receptions for 17 yards.

White was originally signed to the Steelers practice squad near the start of the 2020 season, spending the entire season there. He entered the NFL as an undrafted rookie free agent, signed by the Kansas City Chiefs following the 2020 NFL Draft. He also spent time with the New York Giants and Denver Broncos before being signed by the Steelers.

Green signed with the Steelers shortly before the start of the 2021 training camp. He played in 15 games in 2020 for the Indianapolis Colts, starting one. Green was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft, the 91st overall player. He missed the majority of the season with a hip injury, activated late in the year but didn't play. He played a combined 18 games in 2016 and 2017, starting six. Green also spent time with the Saints, Broncos and Raiders, where he played in four games and started one for the silver and black. He has played in a total of 37 games, starting eight, in his six-year career.

After Sunday's game with Packers, both White and Green will automatically revert to the practice squad without having to pass through waivers.
