MINNEAPOLIS — The Pittsburgh Steelers scratched quarterback Dwayne Haskins, running back Anthony McFarland Jr. and nose tackle Carlos Davis for their game against the Minnesota Vikings, in addition to four injured players that had already been ruled out.
Davis just returned from the injured reserve list after missing significant time with a knee injury, but seems to have lost his spot to Montravius Adams Sr., who is expected to make his second straight start at nose tackle.
McFarland has played just two games this season for the Steelers. He also missed the early part of the season with a knee injury and has yet to re-establish himself as a part of the team’s rotation behind Najee Harris at running back.
Haskins has been active just once this season as the team’s third quarterback.
In addition to those three players, injured nose tackle Isaiah Buggs (ankle), cornerback Joe Haden (mid-foot sprain), center/guard B.J. Finney (back) and inside linebacker Robert Spillane (knee sprain) are all inactive for Pittsburgh.
