 Pittsburgh,  PA  (Sports Network) -  The Pittsburgh Steelers placed linebacker
 Chris Carter on injured reserve on Thursday.
 
 A  fifth-round  draft pick  of the Steelers  in 2011, he  made his first three
 starts  this  year and over  eight games he had  eight tackles. He suffered an
 abdominal injury that will keep him sidelined for the rest of the season.
 
 To take his spot on the roster, the team promoted linebacker Marshall McFadden
 from  the  practice squad  to the active  roster. He was  signed to the team's
 roster on January 18.
 
 The team also signed tight end Jamie McCoy to the practice squad.
