Steelers Tag TE Matt Spaeth With Injured Reserve-Designated To Return
The Pittsburgh Steelers' depth concerns at tight end have forced them to burn their injured reserve-designated for return tag on a role player.
The team announced Tuesday that backup tight end Matt Spaeth, signed to a two-year, $2 million contract in March, will draw the "IR-recall" tag while recovering from Lisfranc surgery. He will be eligible to return to game action in Week 9.
Essentially a blocking specialist, Spaeth has managed just 49 receptions in his six-year career.
It's not unusual for players to encounter setbacks from Lisfranc injuries.
Thanks to 86WARD for the sig!
