Jonathan Dwyer was cut by the Pittsburgh Steelers at the end of the preseason. Now the Steelers are bringing back the 24-year-old.
The Steelers suffered a rash of injuries in their Week 1 loss to Tennessee. Among them was running back LaRod Stephens-Howling who blew out his knee.

Dwyer will likely step right in and share playing time in a backfield by committee which features Issac Redman and Felix Jones.
The Steelers are hoping that Le’Veon Bell could come back as soon as Week 2 and should know more by the middle of the week.
