Sutton (personal) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Chargers. Sutton missed practice Friday due to personal reason and won't be able to play Sunday against Los Angeles. The 23-year-old has played only three defensive snaps over the last four games, so the Steelers defense shouldn't be significantly impacted.
Sutton (hamstring) returned to practice Tuesday, Steelers Director of Communications Burt Lauten reports. Sutton was placed on injured reserve in early September after suffering a hamstring injury in the Steelers' final preseason game. The team will now have three weeks to decide if it wants Sutton to be one of its two players it can active off of IR. If the Steelers elect not to, Sutton will remain on injured reserve for the remainder of the season.
The Steelers selected Sutton in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 94th overall. Sutton didn't show good athleticism at the Combine, running a 4.52-second 40-yard dash and posting a 34-inch vertical at 5-foot-11, 188 pounds, but he was a standout corner at Tennessee and should provide useful depth.
