Sammie Coates Activated from PUP

The Steelers have activated receiver Sammie Coates from the physically unable to preform list on Wednesday. Coates was placed on the PUP list after having minor offseason knee surgery to repair an injury he suffered while training for the season.

The return of Coates will add another receiver to the already crowded position. He will quickly be thrown into a battle for a roster spot that he seemingly is already behind in. Only two roster spots will remain for Justin Hunter, Darrius Heyward-Bey, Demarcus Ayers, Cobi Hamilton, Marcus Tucker, and Coates.

Coates is expected to play on Sunday when the Steelers open their home preseason schedule with a game against the Falcons.
