The #Steelers released RB Isaiah Pead and signed RB Fitzgerald Toussaint from their practice squad to their active roster— Dale Lolley (@dlolleyor) November 27, 2015
The team released RB Isaiah Pead and promoted RB Fitzgeral Toussaint from their practice squad. The move begs several questions as Pead was signed by the Steelers and placed on the active roster when Le'Veon Bell was lost for the season with a torn MCL. Toussaint was on the team's practice squad at that time, but the team selected Pead to take Bell's roster spot over Toussaint.
Nonetheless, the team has curiously released Pead and Toussaint now finds himself on the active roster. Toussaint spent 2014 on the Baltimore Ravens practice squad, but was released when teams trim their roster to the 53-man standard.
The reason for Pead's release was not released by the team, but Tomlin talked highly of Pead coming off the bye week in his weekly press conference Tuesday.
