Morgan Burnett, Ryan Switzer, Roosevelt Nix, Kameron Canaday will play Sunday for Steelers
Receiver Ryan Switzer progressed through concussion protocol, safety Morgan Burnett likewise practiced fully all week and special teams contributors Kameron Canaday and Roosevelt Nix also were deemed healthy enough to play for the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday.
Switzer, Burnett (back), Canaday (knee) and Nix (shoulder) each were given the green light on the week-ending official injury report in regards to their expected participation for Sunday’s game at the Oakland Raiders.
Switzer, Canaday and Nix each had suffered injuries during this past Sunday’s win against the Los Angeles Chargers, a game Burnett had sat out.
Burnett’s return allows the Steelers to run their oft-used dime package in which he typically serves as a hybrid linebacker. Switzer has served as the Steelers’ No. 3 receiver all season and Nix a fullback and special teams stalwart.
Defensive back Cameron Sutton also will return to the lineup after he missed last week’s game because of a personal issue.
Running back James Conner had previously been announced as out because of an ankle injury, and starting right tackle Marcus Gilbert will miss his seventh consecutive game because of a knee injury.
