PITTSBURGH ó The Steelers made a roster move today when they promoted rookie LB Donovan Woods to their active roster.

Woods (6-2, 230), who originally signed with the Steelers as an undrafted rookie free agent from Oklahoma State, made the teamís opening day 53-man roster and played in a total of four games. He missed two games (Weeks 3-4) with a hamstring injury but has a total of five special teams tackles. Woods was released on Oct. 25 and signed back to the Steelersí practice squad on Nov. 1.

The Steelers made room on their roster for Woods by releasing running back Najeh Davenport. Davenport, who was re-signed by the team early last month, originally joined the Steelers as a veteran free agent in 2006, but was released by the team on June 28 of this year. In two-plus seasons with the Steelers, Davenport has rushed for 768 yards and seven touchdowns on 177 carries (4.3 avg.), and has caught 33 passes for 394 yards (11.9 avg.) and three scores. He has also returned 38 kickoffs for 788 yards (20.7 avg.) during his Steelers career.


With Willie hopefully coming back next week Davenport was about the only odd man out that would make sense. He'll be available though if God forbid something else happens to this team injury wise.

Isn't Gary Russell on Roster too? Id imagine he'd be able to play since Willie Parker is out and now Davenport is gone.
