Sammie Coates Activated from PUP

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.

The Steelers have always been a central part of my life. I grew up listening to WDVE tapes recorded off of the radio of Steelers fight songs, and wearing Steelers jerseys as a fashion statement. I joined the SteelerNation.com message board when I was 12, and this site has been a big part of my life ever since. I’ve found life long friends and met some of the best people on earth through this site. In 2015, I was able to help revive the site and develop a news website and all of our social media platforms. I can’t wait to continue to grow with all of you. Go Steelers!
