Pittsburgh, PA (Sports Network) - The Pittsburgh Steelers Tuesday placed starting guard Kendall Simmons on injured reserve.

Simmons will miss the entire 2004 season after suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. He hurt the knee during practice last Wednesday and an MRI exam revealed the severity of the injury.

The 25-year-old Simmons was a first-round pick (30th overall) of the Steelers in the 2002 NFL Draft. He started all 30 games he played in during the first two years of his career.

Pittsburgh also placed wide receiver Zamir Cobb on injured reserve with a fractured right ankle. The rookie from Temple sustained the injury during Saturday's preseason game against Houston and underwent surgery the following day.

Finally, the club released safety Shane Walton.
