Head coach Mike Tomlin said Wheaton (shoulder) is uncertain for Sunday's game against New England, Dave Lolley of the Washington Observer-Reporter reports.

Wheaton missed Sunday's loss to the Dolphins, while Eli Rogers (toe) returned from a two-game absence and Sammie Coates (hand) also managed to play. Given his spot on the depth chart, in combination with Ben Roethlisberger's (knee) expected absence, Wheaton is unlikely to have much of an impact in Sunday's game against the Patriots even if he ends up playing.
