Steelers make first set of cuts

The Steelers announced the following cuts on the first cutdown date of the season:

The Steelers didn't cut any of their rookies, but did put offensive lineman Chris Scott, a fifth-round pick, on the reserve/PUP list.

The Steelers waived the following veterans: LB Brandon Renkart, CB David Pittman, FB Dwayne Wright, and G Adrian Jones. Veteran OLB Andre Frazier was also released from the injured reserve list.

Scott will miss the first six weeks of the regular season, and then will be able to practice with the team for three weeks without counting on their 53-man roster. After that time, the Steelers must add him to the roster, place him on injured reserve, or waive him.

The roster moves leave the Steelers with 75 players. They have to make 22 more moves before Saturday at 6 p.m.
