PITTSBURGH – Despite almost being back to form health wise with linebacker T.J. Watt cleared to play, the Steelers will again be without Joe Haden, as the cornerback is out for today’s game against Baltimore.
Haden, who has missed two straight games after suffering a foot sprain in the Week 10 tie to the Lions, remains inactive. Ahkello Withersppoon will start in place of Haden. Haden joins the recently activated defensive lineman Carlos Davis, defensive end Isaiah Buggs, running back Anthony McFarland and quarterback Dwayne Haskins on the inactive list. Davis
Tight end Pat Freiermuth will play despite being the victim of a late hit in the head last week in Cincinnati. His availability is not surprising since he was a full participant on Wednesday.
