Former Northern Iowa linebacker LJ Fort is back on a fifty three man roster. The former tackle machine for the Panthers has been promoted today to the Steelers roster. In a corresponding move the team placed Roosevelt Nix on the injured reserve.
Steelers place Roosevelt Nix on the IR and sign LB LJ Fort from practice squad.

In LJ Fort’s first ever start as an undrafted free agent for the Browns the linebacker racked up a sack, an interception and a heck of a game against Michael Vick. Fort will get another shot to prove he belongs, in which we feel he does. Good Luck brother in Christ!!!
