09/24/18DBMorgan BurnettGroinOUTBurnett (groin) is inactive for Monday's game against the Buccaneers, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

Burnett was limited in practice all week and was doubtful heading into Monday. The veteran's absence will hurt Pittsburgh's depth at the safety position, but rookie Terrell Edmunds looks poised to take on a starting role against the Buccaneers.

09/24/18DBMike HiltonElbowQUESTIONABLEHilton totaled five tackles (four solo), an interception and a fumble recovery in Monday's 30-27 win over the Buccaneers.

Hilton recovered a Chris Godwin fumble deep in Buccaneer territory to set-up a touchdown. Then, with Pittsburgh leading 16-7 and Tampa Bay driving, Hilton intercepted a Ryan Fitzpatrick pass intended for DeSean Jackson for his first pick of the season. Despite allowing 27 points, the Pittsburgh defense forced four turnovers, including three first-half interceptions.

09/24/18WRJustin HunterCoach's DecisionOUTHunter (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

The Steelers' decision to make Hunter a healthy inactive comes as a surprise after he played 51 of a total 84 offensive snaps in the team's Week 1 tie with the Browns, finishing with one reception for six yards on five targets. Hunter's unimpressive showing appears to have cost him the No. 3 wideout job, with rookie second-round pick James Washington ready to assume those duties in the home opener.

09/24/18QBMason RudolphCoach's DecisionOUTRudolph is inactive for Sunday's game against Cleveland due to coach's decision, Teresa Varley of the Steeler's official site reports.

Rudolph lost the battle for the backup slot to Joshua Dobbs, and the team has no need to suit up three quarterbacks in Week 1. Rudolph will likely suit up if the team faces injuries and doesn't need to scratch healthy players.

09/24/18DLL.T. WaltonCoach's DecisionOUTWalton had three tackles (all solo) in the Steelers' 27-24 overtime win on Sunday.

The ankle injury that forced Ricardo Mathews from the game resulted in increased defensive snaps for Walton, allowing him to have a personal-best three tackles against Cleveland. He finished with eight tackles (six solo) in 10 games this season.

09/08/18WRDamoun PattersonToeQUESTIONABLEThe Steelers waived Patterson (toe) from injured reserve with a settlement Saturday, per the league's official transaction report.

Patterson will be able to sign with another team once he shakes his turf toe. The undrafted rookie had a mediocre senior season at Utah State, snagging 32 passes for 555 yards and four touchdowns in nine games.

09/08/18WRMarcus TuckerAnkleQUESTIONABLEThe Steelers waived Tucker (ankle) from injured reserve Saturday, per the league's official transaction log.

The move will allow Tucker to sign with another team once he's healthy. The practice squad route may be the most likely, however, as he hasn't played a snap after two years in the league.
