The Pittsburgh Steelers have released punter Mitch Berger and replaced him with Paul Ernster.
Berger has been hampered by bad hamstrings in both legs. Those injuries may have caught up to him in Monday's win over the Washington Redskins and cost him his job. Berger had punts of 25, 32 and 35 yards in that game and was seen wincing in pain during warmups.
Pittsburgh was Berger's seventh team since being drafted back in 1994.
Ernster is no stranger to the Steelers. With Berger winning the punting gig, Ernster was released in the last round of cuts during the preseason.
