These moves are rather menial in the grand scheme of an NFL 53-man roster, but with the injuries currently being dealt with on the South Side, there is no knowing if, or when, these players could be forced into duty.
Mike Tomlin will address the media Tuesday at noon to talk about injuries, news and the Patriots. Stay tuned to BTSC for the latest information.
