Patterson (toe) reverted to injured reserve Sunday.
Patterson cleared waivers after being waived-injured by the Steelers on Saturday, so he'll revert to IR for the 2018 season as he battles turf toe. The undrafted rookie out of Utah State hauled in 32 passes for 555 yards and four scores in nine games during his 2017 campaign.
Patterson exited Thursday's preseason game with turf toe, Joe Rutter of TribLive.com reports.
The severity of the injury isn't fully known, but Patterson was seen after the game wearing a walking boot, Chris Adamski of TribLive.com reports. The rookie undrafted free agent signed with Pittsburgh in May and seemed to be facing long odds to crack the 53-man roster.
