Mathews (ankle) is questionable to play in Sunday's playoff game against the Chiefs. Mathews hurt his ankle in the season finale and was unable to suit up for last weekend's wild-card game against the Dolphins.

Mathews (ankle) was ruled out for Sunday's wild-card playoff game against the Dolphins. Mathews injured his ankle in the regular season finale and wasn't able to practice this week. In his absence, both Leterrius Walton and Johnny Maxey project to receive an expanded workload.

The Steelers' already banged up defensive line took another hit, and we'll have to wait until later in the week to learn of his status for their playoff game against Miami. He finished the regular season with 16 tackles (five solo).
