McCullers (ankle) has been ruled out for Thursday's matchup against the Panthers, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.
McCullers will join Marcus Gilbert (knee) as the only two Steelers not playing in Thursday's contest against the Panthers. The Tennessee product logged a limited practice Monday but was unable to practice Tuesday and Wednesday.
McCullers re-signed to a one-year deal with the Steelers on Thursday, Joe Rutter of Triblive.com reports.
McCullers will remain in Pittsburgh, where he was drafted in the sixth-round of the 2014 draft. The nose tackle has been more of a depth lineman so far in his career, registering just one start in 42 career games. The Steelers now have all six defensive linemen who saw action last season under contract for the 2018 season as well.
