Steelers suspend ex-Husky Ta'amu

PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Steelers have suspended rookie nose tackle Alameda Ta'amu two games without pay following his arrest over the weekend.
Coach Mike Tomlin said Ta'amu will not be welcome at the team's facilities during the suspension, which is without pay. The 22-year-old fourth-round draft pick out of the University of Washington was arrested early Sunday morning by police after an incident on the city's south side. Charges include felony fleeing police, aggravated assault and aggravated assault by vehicle, as well as misdemeanor accident causing damage, resisting arrest, escape and DUI.
Tomlin called Ta'amu's actions a "detriment to our efforts" but said the team was not ready to part ways with the former Husky. The suspension does leave the Steelers (2-3) with an open roster spot heading into Sunday night's game in Cincinnati.
