The Steelers made a few minor moves on Tuesday, placing rookie DB Keenan Lewis on IR (back) and signing first-year corner Trae Williams to the active roster.

Williams, who was second-team All Big East in 2007 at South Florida, was a fifth-round pick in 2008 by the Jacksonville Jaguars. He was waived prior to the start of the 2008 regular season and was picked up by Philadelphia, who had him on their practice squad for the remainder of the '08 campaign. He was waived by the Eagles on September 5, 2009, and then signed to the practice squad of the Seattle Seahawks, where he remained all season until being rescued by the Steelers for a better-paying gig today.

Lewis, the Steelers' third-round pick in 2009 out of Oregon State, finished his rookie campaign with appearances in four games, with one tackle. Unfortunately, his first season will be mostly remembered for Mike Tomlin's blunt assessment of his progress in December, when the coach said Lewis must first win a special teams job or else he will not dress for the game.
