The Steelers have elevated linebacker Kyron Johnson from the practice squad to the active/inactive roster, the team announced Saturday.

The second-year man was a sixth round draft pick of the Eagles in 2022. He appeared in 16 games for the Eagles last season, mostly as a special teams player.

Johnson spent five years at Kansas, totaling 193 tackles, including 22.5 tackles for loss and 12.5 sacks, as well as forcing eight fumbles during his time with the Jayhawks. He was signed to the Steelers practice squad in October.

The Steelers have lost linebackers Cole Holcomb and Kwon Alexander for the season, and have been making several moves at the position over the last number of weeks.
