Steelers placed G Nik Embernate on injured reserve with a torn MCL and ACL, ending his season.

31-year-old OT D'Anthony Batiste was signed in a corresponding move. "Embernasty" was signed as an undrafted free agent. He started 46 games for San Diego State, but will "redshirt" on injured reserve as a rookie.

Steelers signed San Diego State G Nik Embernate.

Embernate (6-foot-3 3/4, 305) was nicknamed "Embernasty" in college for his physical play, often to the point of inducing penalties. He started 46 games for the Aztecs, all at guard. Embernate showed some athleticism at his Pro Day with a 5.15 forty and 26 1/2-inch vertical. He did 21 reps on the bench. Once Embernate develops, he could grow into a Richie Incognito-type player. The Steelers don't have much depth along the offensive line.
