PITTSBURGH (AP)

The Pittsburgh Steelers have activated offensive tackle Max Starks from the physically unable to perform list and waived running back John Clay.

Starks, signed by the Steelers just before the start of training camp, missed the first two weeks of practice while rehabbing from a torn ACL in his right knee. The eight-year veteran is expected to battle for the starting left tackle spot.

Clay, who scored a touchdown in his first NFL carry last season, was carted off the field following practice on Sunday.

The Steelers filled Clay's roster spot by signing former Illinois running back Jason Ford.

Pittsburgh also signed tight end Justin Peelle to a one-year deal. Peelle, a 10-year veteran, will get a chance to replace David Johnson, lost for the season with a knee injury.
