Statement by Steelers President Art Rooney, II on Joey Porter Reinstatement

At this time, we have decided that Joey Porter will return to our coaching staff for the game in Kansas City this weekend. 

We have reviewed the available information regarding the incident that took place on Sunday night. We have also reviewed the communication from the Allegheny County District Attorney’s office indicating the intention of that office to withdraw all but the summary offense charges.

As an organization, we have great respect for the job the City of Pittsburgh Police perform for our community.

We also respect the fact that there are ongoing legal proceedings stemming from the incident.  We will await the outcome of the legal process and communicate further with the NFL regarding the Personal Conduct Policy before making any further decisions on potential discipline.
 

Statement from Steelers Assistant Coach Joey Porter

I am grateful to be allowed to return to our coaching staff this weekend. I regret that I was involved in an incident that could have been a distraction to our team. Most importantly, I regret that I touched the police officer and I sincerely apologize for that action. Thankfully, no one was injured.
