The Steelers signed Velasco on September 9, 2013, when center Maurkice Pouncey was placed on the team’s Reserve/Injured List. Velasco started 11 games before suffering the injury late in the fourth quarter of the Steelers’ Week 13 game at Baltimore. He originally signed with the Tennessee Titans as an undrafted rookie free agent on May 2, 2008.
Van Dyke was signed on November 5, 2013. Earlier this season, he was placed on the team’s Waived/Injured List on August 25. Van Dyke was originally drafted by the Raiders in the third round (87th overall) of the 2011 NFL Draft.
To fill the roster spots, the Steelers signed offensive tackle Rashad Butler and center Eric Olsen.

Polamalu registered four tackles, one sack, two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery and one pass defensed in the Steelers 27-11 victory. The two forced fumbles were a single-game career high, giving him three this season. His first forced fumble, which he also recovered, came with under two minutes remaining in the first half and led to a field goal that gave the Steelers a 13-3 lead heading into halftime.
This marks the seventh time Polamalu has been named AFC Defensive Player of the Week and the first time since 2011 (Week 17). Polamalu has now registered at least one sack, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery in the same regular season for the third time in his career (2005 and 2010).
