Hassenauer took over in Week 10 when Dotson left due to injury. When the Steelers other starting guard, Trai Turner, also left with an injury in Week 10, tackle Joe Haeg filled in at guard as the Steelers had B.J. Finney inactive. With Hassenauer now out, it has been Haeg who has entered in the final minutes of the second quarter and left guard for the Steelers.
