Steelers activate DE Tuitt; Big Ben questionable


PITTSBURGH — The unbeaten Steelers are getting another key member of their defense back in time to take on the Washington Football Team on Monday night.

Pittsburgh activated defensive end Stephon Tuitt from the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday morning. Tuitt, who was placed on the list Nov. 27, missed Wednesday’s 19-14 victory over the Baltimore Ravens.

Tuitt has been a significant contributor on the defensive line this season, racking up a career-high seven sacks, his best output since 6.5 in 2015. He has forced two fumbles this year and has two passes defended along with 18 quarterback hits and 32 tackles.

With Tuitt’s return, the Steelers (11-0) still have three players on the COVID-19 list: running back James Conner, center Maurkice Pouncey and offensive lineman Jerald Hawkins.
