Sensabaugh was inactive (coach's decision) for Sunday's win over the Browns, finishing the 2017 season with 22 tackles (19 solo) and an interception in 14 games.
Sensabaugh split his time between defense and special teams this season, although he didn't see his first action on defense until Week 10 when Joe Haden suffered a fractured leg that caused him to miss five games. Sensabaugh will get an extra week to rest before Pittsburgh's Week 19 AFC divisional round game.
Sensabaugh is sitting out to rest after missing time with a shoulder injury earlier this month. He likely would play if Pittsburgh had anything on the line this week, but the team is locked into one of the top two playoff seeds and guaranteed a bye week in the playoffs. He'll return when the team sees the field in the divisional round of the playoffs. Look for Cameron Sutton to see some extra snaps with Sensabaugh out.
Sensabaugh has been dealing with the shoulder injury for the past couple weeks and was unable to play in Monday's win over the Texans. The 29-year-old should serve as the Steelers' nickel or dime cornerback since starter Joe Haden remains clear of the injury report.
Despite just being added to the injury report Friday and practicing in full on Saturday, he'll sit this one out. Joe Haden's return softens the blow to Pittsburgh's secondary, however.
Sensabaugh (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Texans, Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Sensabaugh returned a full practice participant Saturday after sitting out Friday's session, so it would seem he is on track to play Monday. The 29-year-old should revert to his role as nickel and dime cornerback if able to suit up, with starter Joe Haden (leg) not carrying an injury designation.
