The Pittsburgh Steelers have released Shaun Suisham after the kicker suffered an injury setback.
"Unfortunately Shaun incurred a setback in his recovery from knee surgery that won't allow him to compete in a timely manner," Kevin Colbert said in a statement. "Shaun has played a significant role in our success during his time in Pittsburgh. He has been the consummate professional on the field and in our community. We wish he and his family all the best in the future."
Suisham missed all of 2015 after tearing his ACL in the team's first preseason game. He was cut on Friday with a failed physical designation.
He joined the Steelers in 2010 after bouncing around with four other NFL teams.
