Joe Haden Will Dress for Steelers vs. Ravens
Steelers cornerback Joe Haden will suit up for Wednesday afternoon’s game against the Baltimore Ravens, the Steelers announced, while injured running back Jaylen Samuels will not.
Haden hurt his knee in the Steelers’ Week 12 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars and had been listed as questionable for Wednesday’s game.
Samuels, who missed the Jacksonville trip with a quadriceps injury, had previously been ruled out.
Running back Wendell Smallwood was activated from the practice squad on Wednesday and will dress to help replace Samuels, starter James Conner, who is on the COVID-19 reserve list, and backup Trey Edmunds, who was placed on the injured reserve list this week with a hamstring injury.
Conner is joined on the COVID-19 list by starting center Maurkice Pouncey, starting defensive end Stephon Tuitt and backup tackle Jaylen Hawkins.
Tuitt will be replaced by Chris Wormley and Isaiah Buggs, Pouncey will be replaced by J.C. Hassenauer. Practice squad lineman Anthony Coyle was called up from the practice squad to replace Hawkins.
Also not dressed for the Steelers are safety Antoine Brooks, quarterback Josh Dobbs, outside linebacker Jayrone Elliott and tight end Kevin Rader.
