The Steelers promoted WR David Gilreath to the active roster from the practice squad and released rookie DT Alameda Ta'amu. The move came hours before the Steelers' Week 10 game against the Chiefs.

Gilreath has spent the first nine weeks of the season on the team's practice squad. Gilreath gives the Steelers' depth at wide receiver, as Antonio Brown will not play because of an ankle injury.

Ta'amu, the team's fourth-round pick in last April's draft, has not played in a game this season. He was suspended for two games after being arrested for DUI.
