                  === Steelers place Brown, Johnson on IR ===
 
 Pittsburgh,  PA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Pittsburgh Steelers placed offensive
 tackle  Levi Brown  and tight  end/fullback David  Johnson on  injured reserve
 Tuesday.
 
 Brown,  who has an  injured triceps, did not appear in a game for the Steelers
 after being acquired from the Arizona Cardinals in a trade on Oct. 2.
 
 In his seventh season, Brown started Arizona's first four games this season.
 
 Johnson,  who has an injured wrist, appeared in all five games this season. He
 made two starts and had four catches for 70 yards.
 
 To  fill  the roster spots,  the Steelers signed  free agent tight end Richard
 Gordon and promoted cornerback Isaiah Green from the practice squad.
 
 Gordon,  in his third  season, appeared in 27 games for Oakland over his first
 two-plus seasons. He has only three career receptions, one for a touchdown.
 
 Green  is a first-year player who has spent time on Pittsburgh's active roster
 and practice squad this season.
