Pittsburgh (93.7 The Fan) - The Steelers on Sunday released eight players from their training camp roster and placed receiver James Washington and running back Jaylen Samuels on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

The additions of Washington and Samuels give the Steelers four players on the list, which includes defensive backs Justin Layne and Arrion Springs.  The reserve/COVID-19 list was created for a player that either tests positive for COVID-19 or has been quarantined after having been in close contact with an infected person or persons.

A pair of former Pitt Panthers--defensive end Dewayne Hendrix and receiver Quadree Henderson--were among the players released.  Also released were former Duquesne linebacker and long snapper Chrstian Kuntz, quarterback J.T. Barrett, running back Ralph Webb, safety Tyree Kinnel, linebacker Josiah Coatney and offensive lineman Christian Montano.
