Week 11 Injury Report (Titans)

Posted Nov 15, 2017

A look at player injuries and practice participation for Week 11.

The Steelers will be without cornerback Joe Haden when they take on the Titans on Thursday night at Heinz Field after he suffered a fractured fibula against the Colts.

"It could be less than it might be, or could be more than we think," said Coach Mike Tomlin on Monday of Haden's injury. "The reality says he is not playing this week. We will leave him available to us in the short term until we get a better sense of what the prognosis is. Obviously if there is a chance for him to participate with our team this year, we'll leave that light on. Really, we know he's not playing this week."

With Haden out, Coty Sensabaugh will step in to his starting cornerback spot.

"We'll do a great job of rallying around Coty and helping him prepare and look forward to him doing the job," said Tomlin. "The standard is the standard. We'll expect Coty to play well. We'll help him in preparation and he will. Hopefully Joe's injury will be less of an issue the more that Coty plays. Hopefully he'll have an opportunity to come back and be a positive contributor to our efforts in the ways that he has been."

Sensabaugh stepped in against the Colts when Haden went down, his first action with the defense since the preseason. But despite the lack of snaps on defense, he has been preparing all season, knowing you are always a snap away from being called upon.

"It felt good getting my feet wet, getting back out there with the guys," said Sensabaugh. "I am looking forward to the opportunity. I just go out every day and try to get a little better, and however the chips fall is how they fall. It's another opportunity to go out there and prove myself, prove myself to this team, and get another win.

"I am feeling good so far. I still have time to get ready. I am in the meetings every day, going through walkthrough, watching film. I don't think there will be any lack of communication."

A short week hasn't allowed a lot of time for others to heal, but Haden is the only player who has been ruled out of the game.

Vance McDonald, who suffered an ankle injury against the Colts but still returned to the game to score his first touchdown in a Steelers uniform, is questionable. McDonald did not practice on Wednesday.

Both Mike Mitchell (ankle) and James Harrison (back), who were limited in practice on Wednesday, are also questionable.

Here is the current injury report for the Steelers' Week 11 game vs. Tennessee.
