Steelers wide receiver Limas Sweed was placed on the Reserve/Injured List today after clearing NFL waivers. Sweed was Waived/Injured on Monday after injuring his Achilles� tendon during the final day of the team�s mandatory minicamp on May 2.
Because Sweed has cleared waivers, he will not count against the Steelers� 80-man roster limit. Sweed, a third-year veteran from Texas, will miss the entire 2010 season while recovering from his injury.
The Steelers replaced Sweed on their offseason roster by signing first-year wide receiver Isaiah Williams. Williams signed with the Baltimore Ravens as an undrafted rookie in 2009, but was released prior to the regular season.
