  • Steelers' Buddy Johnson: Ready to compete

    Johnson (foot) is ready to compete for a roster spot in camp, Chris Adamski of Triblive.com reports.

    Johnson (foot) was placed on injured reserve Friday, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

    Johnson (foot) will not play in Monday's game against the Browns, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports.

    Johnson becomes the first player who gets ruled out for Monday's divisional matchup against Cleveland, but his absence shouldn't be much of a surprise since he also sat Week 16. It remains to be seen if he'll recover in time for the regular-season finale at Baltimore on Jan. 9.

    Johnson (foot) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

    Johnson practiced fully Wednesday and Thursday, but he was ruled out for the Week 16 contest after downgrading to limited activity Friday. The 22-year-old linebacker typically sees most of his work on special teams, so his absence shouldn't affect the Steelers' defensive game plan.
