Steelers Place Roosevelt Nix on IR

The Steelers have placed fullback Roosevelt Nix on injured reserve. Nix suffered a foot injury in Sunday’s loss to the Ravens.

Nix had played in 15 games, making three starts. He also had eight special teams tackles and a forced fumble.

A defensive tackle at Kent State, the Falcons first tried Nix as a fullback in 2014. He signed with the Steelers last January.

The Steelers filled the open roster spot by promoting linebacker L.J. Fort from their practice squad. Fort has 17 games of NFL experience with the Browns and Seahawks.

The Steelers need help to make the playoffs. They have to beat the Browns next Sunday and have the Jets lose to the Bills.
