Sweed, Warren out for season

Steelers/NFL Videos

The Steelers have two roster spots to fill after placing long snapper Greg Warren on injured reserve and wide receiver Limas Sweed on the reserve/non-football illness list.

Both are out for the rest of the season.

Warren had to be carried off the field Sunday after Jeff Reed kicked the extra point that gave the Steelers a 37-36 win over the Green Bat Packers. He appeared to have torn the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in his right knee.

Sweed, who caught just one pass for five yards this season, didn't dress for the game against the Packers because of the illness.
