The Pittsburgh Steelers have activated offensive guard David DeCastro from the Reserve/Injured list and promoted offensive lineman John Malecki to their active roster.
DeCastro was placed on the injured reserve after suffering a knee injury during Pittsburgh's third preseason game at Buffalo. He was the Steelers' first-round selection (24th overall) in this past year's NFL Draft.
He was eligible to return from injured reserve after eight weeks but did not begin practicing until last week.
