One-handed catch by George Pickens against the Browns leads to the Steelers’ first touchdown. Late in the first quarter, as Pickens was galloping down the sideline in front of the Cleveland Browns bench, he did exactly that.
Pickens hauled in the 36-yard reception with a one-handed grab, gripping the ball against his body as he struck the ground. Prior to Thursday’s game, Pickens had just two catches for 26 yards. Pickens still made the disputed catch despite being closely covered by Martin Emerson Jr. The longest pass play this year for the Steelers was a completion of 36 yards.
Scott, who was also added to the active roster for the Patriots game, was initially signed to the Steelers practice squad in 2021. He also spent time on the active roster as a game-day call-up in the previous season and played against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 11 of that same year.
Following the 2020 NFL Draft, Scott was signed by the Green Bay Packers as an undrafted rookie free agency. He participated in 40 games while playing for SMU, recording 97 tackles, 36 of which were for a loss, 18 sacks, and five forced fumbles. He recorded 10 of his 18 sacks and three forced fumbles during his final year.
After the game, Scott can return to the practice squad without needing to pass waivers.
David Anenih, a linebacker who was just added to the 53-man roster a week ago, will sit out for the second straight game.
Linebacker Delontae Scott will play in the game despite Anenih’s absence. Just before kickoff, Scott was moved from the practice squad to the Active/Inactive Roster.
Scott was originally signed to the Steelers practice squad in 2021 and spent time on the Active/Inactive roster as a game day call up last season as well, appearing in one game. Scott was also promoted to the Active/Inactive roster for the Patriots game and took part in the game.
