Steelers sign preseason EDGE rusher standout to practice squad

It’ll take a contingent of players to sniff the production of T.J. Watt and Alex Highsmith, and that’s what the Pittsburgh Steelers will have to prepare.

Rookie EDGE rusher David Perales returns to the team after his release from the practice squad in October. He’ll join Markus Golden, Nick Herbig and fellow practice-squader Kyron Johnson as the only depth outside linebackers currently on the roster.

To make room for Perales, the Steelers released running back Qadree Ollison.

Perales played 100 preseason snaps, recording four tackles and a quarterback hurry.

If Watt and Highsmith remain on the final injury report on Thursday, expect Johnson and Perales to be called up.
