He wasn't 'sent down' in the conventional sense, Steelers and Steeldogs don't have a great relationship, Steelers released him and 'Dogs signed him.

Sounds like a combination of injury and being stuck too far down the depth chart, he's a good player but Steelers aren't a great place for a young Brit to develop; they've lost their fair share of good kids over the last few years because they simply don't get the chances that other Elite teams give.
