Pittsburgh placed Holcomb (knee) on its injured reserve list Monday, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

As expected, Holcomb is now poised to spend the rest of the campaign on the injured reserve list after sustaining a severe knee injury Thursday versus Tennessee. In his place, Elandon Roberts should garner a larger role for the remainder of the year.

Holcomb was carted off the field Thursday night with an apparent serious knee injury, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The linebacker assisted on two tackles before exiting in the first half. Holcomb signed a three-year with the Steelers in the offseason after spending his first four seasons with Washington. In the first seven games of 2023, he recorded 52 tackles, two passes defensed, two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery.

Team tackle leader in loss

Holcomb had 11 tackles (seven solo) and a fumble recovery in Sunday's 20-10 loss to the Jaguars.

He recovered a fumble forced by Kwon Alexander on Evan Engram late in the first quarter to stop the Jaguars' drive deep in Steelers territory. Holcomb's 11 tackles were a season-high and the first time he registered double-digit takedowns since Week 6 of the 2022 season. Holcomb once again played in every single defensive snap Sunday and has done so in all but one game this season.

Productive in win

Holcomb logged eight tackles (five solo) during Pittsburgh's 24-17 win versus the Rams on Sunday.

Holcomb was once again productive Sunday and ended up finishing second on the team on total tackles. The 27-year-old has now logged at least five tackles in all six games this season bringing his total to 42 (25 solo), and Holcomb will look to add to those totals this week versus Jacksonville.

Nine tackles in win

Holcomb recorded nine tackles (eight solo) and a pass deflection during Sunday's 17-10 win against the Ravens.

Holcomb continues his solid start to the season as he's logged five or more in every game so far. The 27-year-old set new season highs for himself in both solo and total tackles Sunday and will look to continue his efficient production after the Steelers return from their bye week.

Racks up eight tackles

Holcomb was on the field for 90 percent of Pittsburgh's defensive snaps Monday and finished second on the team in tackles while also forcing a fumble for a second consecutive week. He had just two forced fumbles over his final three years in Washington but has gotten off to a hot start with his new team, logging 13 tackles (five solo) with two forced fumbles.

Cleared from foot issue

Holcomb should be ready to participate in OTAs after he recently said that his foot is fully healed, Joe Rutter of Trib Live reports.

Holcomb, who underwent season-ending foot surgery that ultimately caused him to miss the final 10 games of the 2022 campaign, is currently in line to be back at full strength by the time Pittsburgh's offseason program begins. The 26-year-old just signed with the Steelers on March 15 after having spent his first four NFL seasons in Washington, and he should eventually command a starting linebacker role this coming fall.
