The Pittsburgh Steelers have scratched quarterback Dwayne Haskins and punter Cameron Nizialek from Sunday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs, the team announced.

Haskins, the team’s third quarterback, has dressed in just one game this season.

Nizialek, signed to the practice squad on Saturday, was added to the active/inactive roster for the game, but designated as inactive.

The Steelers also officially scratched four players already ruled out of Sunday’s game, including starting punter Pressley Harvin III, who will miss the game following the death of his father.

Nizialek was one of two punters signed by the team on Saturday. Corliss Waitman is dressed and will handle the punting and holding duties in Kansas City.

Three injured players are also scratched: tight end Pat Freiermuth (concussion protocol), inside linebacker Buddy Johnson (foot) and defensive lineman Chris Wormley (groin).
