The Steelers have placed running back Jonathan Dwyer and nose tackle Chris Hoke on injured reserve and signed linebacker Mortty Ivy and safety Damon Cromartie-Smith from the practice squad.

Ivy, a Gateway High and West Virginia product, and Smith had been on the Steelers' practice squad. Ivy appeared in a game earlier this season when injuries had left the Steelers thin at linebacker. Both Ivy and Smith figure to suit up tonight when the Steelers host the Browns.

Hoke and Dwyer are out for the rest of the season with neck and foot injuries, respectively.
