As expected, the Steelers promote Brad Wing to active roster

The Pittsburgh Steelers were going to be without Pressley Harvin III on Sunday vs. the Houston Texans in Week 4, so the roster move which was made Saturday was both obvious and expected.

The move which is being discussed was none other than the promotion of Brad Wing to the team’s active roster. This per the Steelers official Twitter/X account:

If you are a younger fan, you might not remember Brad Wing, but the left-footed punter spent time with the team back in 2014. In fact, he played one season for the black and gold. Wing appeared in each of the Steelers 16 regular-season games in 2014, punting 61 times for 2,668 yards while landing 20 attempts inside the opponents’ 20-yard line. This before being traded to the New York Giants in 2015.

Wing will get a chance to prove he is still a capable punter in the NFL, but his presence alone is disappointing as Harvin was coming off two of his best games as a professional in Weeks 2 and 3. Nonetheless, the hope is Wing is able to hold down the fort until Harvin is able to resume kicking/holding duties following his hamstring injury.
