The Steelers hoped to have cornerback Joe Haden back in the lineup against the Patriots. It didn’t happen.

Haden, though, will return this week against Houston, barring a setback, Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

The eight-year veteran has not played since Week 10 when he fractured a fibula in a game against the Colts. With Coty Sensabaugh slowed by a shoulder injury, third-round pick Cameron Sutton made his first career start Sunday.

Sutton played 57 of 60 snaps against the Patriots and made three tackles.

In nine starts this season, Haden has 16 tackles, five pass breakups and an interception.

  1. This team is decimated by late season injuries and it’s starting to show on the scoreboard. The championship teams are the ones that get healthy around this time of year. Steelers are goi;g in the opposite direction.

  2. Perhaps he can be around if they play NE again. Certainly would be an upgrade for Steelers on back end. And so would a healthy Antonio Brown.
