Sutton signed a two-year, $9 million contract with the Steelers on Monday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Sutton has suited up in 47 games with the Steelers over the last three seasons, including seven starts. In 2020, he produced 30 tackles, eight pass breakups, three forced fumbles and a sack. The 26-year-old is solid in coverage, as he allowed a 79.8 passer rating when targeted last season. Sutton could take on a larger role in 2021 if Joe Haden leaves in free agency.
Sutton had one tackle (solo) in Sunday's 28-10 loss to the Ravens.
Sutton was on the field for 269 defensive snaps -- a slight increase from the 241 snaps he had in 2018 -- but saw a decline in tackles. He finished the 2019 season with 16 tackles -- compared to 22 last season -- but did record his first career sack. He also had one interception playing in all 16 games. Providing little more than depth to the secondary, Sutton will likely return to Pittsburgh in 2020 for the final year of his contract.
Sutton recorded one tackle (solo) for a sack in Pittsburgh's 20-13 win over Cleveland on Sunday.
The third-year defensive back got to Cleveland quarterback Baker Mayfield for a one-yard loss to register his first sack in 20 NFL games. With just 13 tackles and an interception to go with his sack in 10 games this season Sutton just isn't on the field enough to warrant IDP fantasy consideration heading into Week 14 against the Cardinals.
Sutton recorded two tackles (one solo) during Sunday's 16-13 win over Cincinnati.
After a hamstring injury limited him to just five games in his rookie season, Sutton rebounded nicely to finish the 2018 season with 22 tackles, an interception and two forced fumbles in 15 games. Still, he only played on 23.1 percent of Pittsburgh's defensive snaps, contributing more as a special teamer. He has two years remaining on his current contract and should return to provide cornerback depth.
Sutton has seen reps with the first-team defense as a slot corner at practice this week, Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Sutton has played only three defensive snaps since Week 8, but he's worked with the starting defense while top nickel corner Mike Hilton has worked with the scout team. Coach Mike Tomlin indicated he's willing to shake things up with the Steelers losing three straight games, which could prove to be a window of opportunity for Sutton.
Sutton (personal) was a full participant at practice Wednesday.
Sutton was unable to play in Sunday's loss to the Chargers due to personal reasons but has fully rejoined the team for Week 14. The 23-year-old should resume his role as a depth cornerback and special teams contributor for the Steelers.
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 (personal) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.
Sutton missed practice on Friday due to undisclosed personal reasons, and his availability for Sunday's tilt against the Chargers is evidently in question. The depth cornerback has not seen more than three defensive snaps since Week 8, so even if he were unable to suit up, Pittsburgh's defense would likely emerge unscathed.
Sutton totaled two tackles (both solo) and an interception in Sunday's 21-21 tie against the Browns.
The rookie looked lost at times, but showed why Pittsburgh selected him in the third round when he intercepted Tyrod Taylor with 16 seconds left in regulation to force overtime. We'll know more about the status of Joe Haden (hamstring) over the next few days, but it could result in additional playing time for Sutton against Kansas City in Week 2.
The Steelers activated Sutton (hamstring) from injured reserve Tuesday, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.
Sutton, a third-round pick in April out of Tennessee, appears ready to make his NFL debut Sunday against the Packers after returning to practice three weeks ago. Though his addition to the 53-man roster comes at a welcome time with Joe Haden (upper leg) set to miss multiple weeks, Sutton is uncertain to immediately pick up extended snaps on defense due to his lack of NFL experience. Look for head coach Mike Tomlin to proceed with Artie Burns and Coty Sensabaugh as the team's starting cornerbacks unless the performance of either player dips in the Steelers' subsequent contests.
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 placed Sutton (hamstring) on injured reserve Monday.
Sutton aggravated a hamstring injury in the Steelers' preseason finale. He missed a majority of camp due to the issue. If the Steelers do not opt to place the third-round pick on the IR-R he will have to wait until the 2018 season to make his NFL debut.
Sutton left Thursday's preseason game against the Panthers with a hamstring injury and won't return, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
This could be a reaggravation of the same injury he suffered earlier in the preseason. The 2017 third-round pick is looking to hang onto a special teams role with the Steelers and eventually develop into a starter at cornerback.
Sutton, who has missed the last few weeks of practice due to a right hamstring injury, is expected to participate in practice this week, Chris Adamski of TribLive.com reports.
Sutton doesn't appear to be fully Injury-free, but if he can do more at practice this week like he hopes, the defensive back is optimistic he'll be able to make a return to the field Sunday for the team's third preseason game.
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.
