Steelers sign Sciba to coach squad

The Steelers signed kicker Nick Sciba to the practice squad today and he will be elevated to the active/inactive list for Sunday’s game against the Eagles. Sciba was signed after kicker Chris Boswell was ruled out for the game with a right groin injury.

Sciba was originally signed as an undrafted rookie free agent following the team’s rookie minicamp in May. He was with the team for part of the preseason and training camp, before being released.

Sciba holds the NCAA, ACC and Wake Forest records with 34 consecutive field goals made and was the most accurate kicker in NCAA, ACC and Wake Forest history at 89.9 percent. He finished his career with 433 points, a school record and ranks third in ACC history. Sciba holds the school record for made field goals, which was tied for 10th in NCAA history. A three-time Lou Groza Award semifinalist, Sciba was named a 2019 First Team All-American by ESPN, the Football Writers Association of America, Sports Illustrated and Phil Steele.

The team also elevated defensive lineman Carlos Davis to the active/inactive list for the game. Davis was selected by the Steelers in the seventh round of the 2020 NFL Draft. He played in 11 games since being drafted without a starter. He has 11 career tackles, including four tackles for a loss.

To make room for Sciba on the practice squad, the team released wide receiver Josh Malone.

Both Sciba and Davis will return to the practice squad after the game.
