Steelers OT Rashad Butler has left the team for personal reasons

Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports

Butler was signed by the Steelers Saturday in wake of multiple injuries along their offensive line.

The Steelers' offensive line depth has taken a hit over the last few days.

The hits are still coming Monday.

Associated Press writer Will Graves, among others, is reporting Monday OT Rashad Butler has left the team for personal reasons, not even 48 hours after he joined the squad. No indication of the nature of his departure has been given.

Butler was signed after the Steelers' Week 13 loss to the Ravens; a game that saw offensive tackles Kelvin Beachum and Mike Adams suffer injuries late in the game. Starting center Fernando Velasco was lost for the season with an Achilles injury in the same game. The Steelers also signed interior lineman Eric Olsen.

It may have been a stretch to see Butler as likely to see action Sunday when the Steelers host the Miami Dolphins in a game with heavy playoff implications. The severity of the injuries to Beachum and Adams has not yet been confirmed.

Cody Wallace is expected to replace Velasco at center against Miami.
