Steelers Rookie WR Calvin Austin III Done For Season

The Pittsburgh Steelers announced Wednesday that Austin (foot) will remain on injured reserve for the rest of the season.



PITTSBURGH, PA — The Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin stated in his press conference that rookie wide receiver Calvin Austin III would be ruled out for the remaining of the season in IR.

Austin is ineligible to play in 2022 after his 21-day practice evaluation window came to a close without Pittsburgh activating him from IR and adding him to the 53-man roster.

The rookie fourth-round pick returned to practice in early October after missing August and September with a foot injury, but the Steelers apparently decided that Austin won’t help them this season.

He should have plenty of time to get back to full strength before the offseason program next spring.
