Steelers sit struggling rookie WR Washington vs Chargers
Washington, a second-round draft pick, has just eight receptions on the season. He was targeted three times in last week’s loss to Denver and did not have a reception.
Pittsburgh starting right tackle Marcus Gilbert will miss his sixth straight game with a knee injury. Safety Morgan Burnett (back) is also out. Quarterback Mason Rudolph, cornerback Cam Sutton, offensive tackle Zach Banner and defensive end L.T. Walton are also inactive for the Steelers.
Defensive end Stephon Tuitt, who missed the last two games with an elbow injury, will play.
