The Pittsburgh Steelers have activated guard David DeCastro, their first-round pick, from injured reserve on Monday.

DeCastro could soon slide into the starting lineup at right guard for Pittsburgh, which has battled injuries on its offensive line.

DeCastro suffered a knee injury in preseason and was placed on IR recall, allowing him to heal and be available for the season's stretch run.
