Myles Jack, a 28-year-old inside linebacker, has been signed to the practice squad by Pittsburgh. This comes three months after he left the game during training camp with the Philadelphia Eagles. Pittsburgh is currently in need of help at inside linebacker due to season-ending injuries to Cole Holcomb and Kwon Alexander.
In a recent game, Elandon Roberts played every defensive snap, while Mykal Walker took the majority of snaps at the other inside linebacker spot. Jack spent the 2022 season with Pittsburgh after playing six seasons in Jacksonville. Last season, he led the Steelers with 104 tackles but was slowed by injuries and then released in March. After signing with Philadelphia in August, he retired two weeks later.
Pittsburgh signed Jack to their practice squad on Monday as they look to fill a void at inside linebacker following the recent injuries to Holcomb and Alexander. Jack brings experience and leadership to the position, making him an attractive option for Pittsburgh as they look to make it into the playoffs.
