The Pittsburgh Steelers place three players on injured reserve following their loss to the Tennessee Titans at the weekend.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have placed three players on the season-ending injured reserve list.

Center Maurkice Pouncey and running back LaRod Stephens-Howling both sustained knee ligament injuries, while linebacker Larry Foote suffered a biceps tear in the team's opening game of the season.

The AFC North side have filled the gaps on their roster by re-signing running back Jonathan Dwyer, as well as bringing in free agent center Fernando Velasco and kicker Shayne Graham.

The Steelers will play the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday.
