The Steelers placed defensive end Brett Keisel on the team’s Reserve/Injured List due to a triceps injury during Sunday’s game, the team announced today.

The 13-year defensive end played in all 12 of the team’s games in 2014, making four starts, totaling 17 tackles, 1.0 sack and five pass break-ups.

Pittsburgh also announced the signing of defensive end Clifton Geathers.

Geathers has played in 37 games (one start) since entering the NFL as a sixth-round draft selection of Cleveland in 2010. He has spent time with Miami (2010), Dallas (2010-11), Indianapolis (2012), Philadelphia (2013) and Washington (2014).

A journeyman of sorts, I have faith in defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau for locating talent on the defensive line. He will have him ready and primed for the remainder of the season and hopefully beyond. #PS4L
