Steelers | Plaxico Burress to IR

The Pittsburgh Steelers placed WR Plaxico Burress (shoulder) on the Injured Reserve Tuesday, Aug. 13, and signed free-agent WR Tyler Shaw (Cardinals) to an undisclosed deal in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: The loss of Burress puts more onus on Antonio Brown and Emmanuel Sanders in the receiving game this year. Jerricho Cotchery will also see a bigger role as the No. 3 receiver. The Steelers aren't expected to air the ball out all that much, though, so the boost to Brown and Sanders isn't drastic.
