This Thursday morning, the Pittsburgh Steelers made a number of roster moves. One of those moves resulted in the release of a former Ohio State star. 

The Steelers announced this Thursday morning that they have released former Ohio State star Master Teague III, who's injured. In a resulting move, Pittsburgh has signed former Washington State star Max Borghi. 

Teague spent four years playing for the Buckeyes of Ohio State. He carried the rock 323 times for 1,764 yards and 17 touchdowns in 31 career games. He also had 11 catches for 118 yards. 

"We have signed RB Max Borghi and waived/injured RB Master Teague III," the team announced.

It's probably only a matter of time before Master Teague III gets another opportunity in the NFL, but he needs to get healthy first. 

"#Steelers RB Master Teague listed as day-to-day, but looks like it might be longer," said Jeff Hathhorn.

Hopefully Teague gets healthy over the next year or so.
