Detroit signed Wright to a reserve/future contract Friday, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports. Wright appeared in three games with the Steelers in 2020, starting place of Chris Boswell while the latter dealt with a groin injury. In that span, Wright converted all four of his field-goal tries and all seven extra-point attempts. Matt Prater is set to hit free agency this offseason.
Wright reverted to the Steelers' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log. Wright played the last two games in place of Chris Boswell (groin). In that stretch, Wright connected on all three field-goal attempts and all five extra-point tries. If Boswell's healthy, he'll be the Steelers' starting kicker in Sunday's wild-card game against the Browns. Otherwise, Wright will get the nod again.
Wright converted on all three of his field-goal attempts while also making his lone extra-point try in Sunday's 24-22 loss to the Browns. Wright filled in for Chris Boswell (groin) once again Sunday, and he was perfect on four kicks during the regular-season finale. Boswell will likely handle the kicking duties in the playoffs considering he's healthy, but Wright could have the chance to compete for a starting role with a team in 2021 given his performance over the past several weeks.
Wright was elevated to the Steelers' active roster Saturday, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports. Wright made his second appearance of the season in Week 16 against the Colts, making all four of his extra-point attempts in the process. He'll be the Steelers' kicker again in Week 17 with Chris Boswell (groin) still sidelined.
Wright reverted to the Steelers' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log. Wright converted on all four of his point-after tries during Sunday's win over Indianapolis, though he was not afforded a field-goal attempt in the contest. The 24-year-old has been reliable over two appearances this season, knocking down all six of his PATs while draining his lone field-goal try of 37 yards Week 13 against Washington. As Chris Boswell continues to deal with a groin injury, there remains a chance of Wright being activated for Pittsburgh's regular-season finale at Cleveland.
