Steelers activate rookie CB Sutton, but role still uncertain

PITTSBURGH (AP) Reinforcements are on the way for the injury-plagued Pittsburgh Steelers secondary.

How much? Well, coach Mike Tomlin isn't quite ready to say. The AFC North leaders activated rookie defensive back Cam Sutton from injured reserve on Tuesday, though Tomlin stressed that doesn't mean the third-round pick will be on the field when the Steelers (8-2) host Green Bay on Sunday night.

Sutton spent the last two months recovering from a hamstring injury that he aggravated in the preseason finale against Carolina. He returned to practice this month and while he's healthy enough to play, Tomlin is taking a pragmatic approach to whether Sutton is ready to play under the lights at Heinz Field.
