Around the league

STEELERS: Pittsburgh placed starting right tackle Willie Colon on the injured reserve list and signed well-traveled veteran Jamon Meredith. Colon, 28, suffered a torn triceps Sunday at Baltimore. He missed the entire 2010 season after rupturing his Achilles tendon in mini-camp.

COWBOYS: Dallas signed journeyman Frank Walker to bolster a depleted corps of cornerbacks. Orlando Scandrick is expected to miss at least the upcoming game because of an ankle injury, and Terence Newman has been sidelined since early in training camp because of a groin injury. Mike Jenkins was in and out of the opener because of a variety of injuries, leaving the Cowboys down to their fourth- and fifth-stringers, plus a backup safety.

CHARGERS: Kicker Nick Novak agreed to a contract with San Diego. Novak replaces Nate Kaeding, who tore a ligament in his left leg during the opening kickoff Sunday and will miss the rest of the season.

BROWNS: Cleveland signed veteran punter Brad Maynard to replace Richmond McGee, who suffered a herniated disk in his back during pregame warmups Sunday and is out for the season. Maynard, a 14-year NFL veteran, played the past 10 seasons with the Chicago Bears. He was released in July and spent the exhibition season with Houston.
