The Steelers placed safety Sean Davis on the reserve/injured list today after he suffered a shoulder injury in the team’s loss to the Seahawks on Sunday.
Davis is in his fourth season after being selected in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft. Going into the season Davis had 238 total tackles, including 181 solo stops, two and a half sacks, five interceptions, 20 passes defensed, a forced fumble and a fumble return. Against the Seahawks he had five tackles while starting his 41st career game. He missed the Patriots game with an ankle injury
The team also added quarterback Paxton Lynch, signing him to the practice squad.
Lynch was drafted by the Denver Broncos in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft, the 26th pick overall. Lynch played in five games with four starts and was waived shortly after making the initial 53-man roster in 2018.
He didn’t play in the 2018 season and signed a futures contract with Seattle after the season. The Seahawks waived him this year when they had to get down to the 53-man roster.
The Davis move opens a roster spot for Minkah Fitzpatrick, who the Steelers traded for.
