The Pittsburgh Steelers placed nose tackle Chris Hoke (neck) and running back Jonathan Dwyer (foot) on injured reserve on Thursday.

Hoke, an 11-year veteran, has recorded 80 sacks, two tackles and a fumble recovery in 114 career games played with the Steelers.

Dwyer, a second-year Georgia Tech product, rushed for 123 yards this season, including a 107-yard performance in Week 6 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Linebacker Mortty Ivy and safety Damon Cromartie-Smith have replaced Hoke and Dwyer on the 53-man roster.
