Steelers Activate Diontae Johnson From Reserve/COVID-19 List

By: KDKA-TV News Staff

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) - There's some good news for Steelers fans ahead of Sunday's regular season finale against the rival Ravens: Diontae Johnson is off the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Johnson, the Steelers leading receiver with 100 receptions for 1,110 yards, was activated one day after he was added to the list.

The Steelers face off against the Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium in the last game of the regular season. A playoff run hangs in the balance, but several pieces need to fall into place for the Steelers to make it to the post season.

The Steelers made a few more roster moves Friday, placing linebacker Buddy Johnson (foot) on the reserve/injured list, signing guard Nate Gilliam to the practice squad and releasing receivers Rico Bussey and Damion Willis.

Kickoff on Sunday is at 1 p.m.
