Joe Haden out for Pittsburgh’s showdown with Patriots
Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Joe Haden will miss his fifth straight game with a fractured left leg, meaning rookie Cameron Sutton will make his first career start against Tom Brady and the New England Patriots.
Haden practiced this week and hoped he would be able to return. Instead the Steelers will turn to Sutton, a third-round pick.
Pittsburgh will have rookie wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster, who was limited during the week with a hamstring injury.
The Patriots will be without defensive lineman Alan Branch, who is inactive with a knee injury. New England also made wide receiver Chris Hogan inactive because of a shoulder injury.
Starting middle linebacker Bobby Wagner is active for the Seattle Seahawks in their NFC West showdown with the Los Angeles Rams despite a hamstring injury.
Wagner was listed as questionable on the final injury report, but went through pregame warmups with his fellow linebackers about two hours before kickoff and appeared to be moving without restriction. Wagner left last week’s loss at Jacksonville early in the second half after aggravating the injury.
Seattle will be without outside linebacker K.J. Wright after he was unable to make it through the league’s concussion protocol in time for Sunday’s game.
