Army veteran Alejandro Villanueva much more than a practice-squad player

PITTSBURGH — Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin opened his weekly news conference by thanking all of those who serve and have served in the military.

He also announced that the Steelers would do more than just honor West Point graduate Alejandro Villanueva, an offensive lineman, on Veteran’s Day.

Villanueva, who was signed to the Steelers’ practice squad in early September, will make the trip with the team to Nashville on Sunday.

The Steelers play the Tennessee Titans on Monday night and practice-squad players generally don’t travel with the team to road games.
