The Steelers have promoted cornerback Doran Grant to the active roster, the team announced today.
Grant (5-10, 200), originally joined the team as a fourth-round (121st overall) draft selection in the 2015 NFL Draft. He started 30-of-54 games played at Ohio State and totaled 146 tackles, nine interceptions and 20 pass breakups. He has spent the first eight weeks of the season on the team's Practice Squad.
To make room for Grant, the Steelers have released wide receiver Tyler Murphy.
