Practice window opens
The Steelers announced Wednesday that Freiermuth (hamstring) has been designated for return from injured reserve.
With the Steelers opening his 21-day evaluation window, Freiermuth is eligible to resume practicing Wednesday, and Adam Schefter of ESPN relays that the tight end is expected to be officially added to the active roster ahead of Sunday's game against the Browns. Before missing the Steelers' last five games with the hamstring injury, Freiermuth had gotten off to a slow start to the season through his first four appearances. He failed to reach double-digit receiving yards three times and posted a 3-41-1 receiving line on four targets in the other contest.
