Steelers rookie cornerback Cam Sutton active for Packers game
Rookie cornerback Cam Sutton, a third-round pick activated from injured reserve earlier in the week, will be active for the Steelers’ game against the Green Bay Packers Sunday night at Heinz Field.
Also active is running back Fitzgerald Toussaint, who was promoted from the practice squad Saturday.
Players inactive for the prime-time game are wide receiver JuJu Smith Schuster (hamstring), cornerback Joe Haden (fibula fracture), tight end Vance McDonald (ankle), plus third quarterback Joshua Dobbs, tackle Matt Feiler, linebacker James Harrison and nose tackle Daniel McCullers.
With Feiler on the inactive list, Jerald Hawkins will be the backup at tackle to Chris Hubbard, who is starting the next four games because of Marcus Gilbert’s suspension. Hawkins is on the gameday roster for the first time in his NFL career.
The Packers are playing the game without running backs Ty Montgomery and Aaron Jones, plus linebacker Clay Matthews. The other players inactive for Green Bay are cornerback Donatello Brown, offensive linemen Lucas Patrick and Adam Panky, and defensive tackle Kenny Clark.
