The Steelers made another practice squad move today, with the team announcing that they have released quarterback Trace McSorley from the practice squad.

McSorley played college football at Penn State before being drafted by the Baltimore Ravens in the sixth round of the 2019 NFL Draft. He spent just over two seasons with the Ravens, and has since spent time with the Cardinals, Patriots, Bears, and Steelers.

Over his NFL career up to this point, McSorley has appeared in nine games, completing 48/93 passes for 502 yards, one passing touchdown, and five interceptions.

By releasing McSorley, the Steelers now have an open spot on their practice squad. Mason Rudolph, Kenny Pickett, and Mitch Trubisky are now the only quarterbacks on Pittsburgh’s roster.

The Steelers take on the Buffalo Bills in the Wild Card round of the NFL Playoffs this Sunday at 1 p.m. ET.
