Unfortunately, Joe Haden did not participate again on Friday and is out for Sunday’s game. Haden is currently in the NFL’s concussion protocol from where he left Monday’s game with the concussion and was unable to return. Haden will now eye the Steelers’ Monday night matchup with the Bengals in Week 15 for a return date.

Robert Spillane left Monday’s game in the third quarter with a knee injury. While it is not believed to be serious enough to cost Spillane the season, it was believed Spillane would miss at least one game if not more. It’s not a surprise that Spillane has been ruled out for Sunday.

On a positive note, Steven Nelson returned to practice as a full participant all week and does not carry an injury designation for Sunday. Additionally, kicker Chris Boswell who missed practice on Wednesday with a hip injury, practiced fully Thursday and Friday and does not carry an injury designation either.

Another player who showed up on the injury report Thursday was rookie wide receiver Chase Claypool with an illness. On Friday, Claypool returned to practice as a full participant and has no injury status for Sunday.

Even though the Steelrs lost linebacker Vince Williams to the Reserve/COVID-19 List this week, center Maurkice Pouncey was activated from the list on Friday and is set to play Sunday.
