PITTSBURGH (AP) Doug Legursky's return to the Pittsburgh Steelers didn't last long.

The team cut the veteran offensive lineman on Saturday, less than two weeks after they signed him as a potential replacement for injured All-Pro center Maurkice Pouncey. Legursky started 17 games for the Steelers during his first stint in Pittsburgh from 2009-12, including the 2011 Super Bowl against Green Bay when Pouncey was hurt.

Pittsburgh also released running back Josh Harris, who was vying for a backup spot behind Le'Veon Bell and DeAngelo Williams.
