The Pittsburgh Steelers are gearing up for a Week 12 matchup against the Indianapolis Colts. This is Pittsburgh's first (and only) appearance on Monday Night Football this season, giving the team an extra day to prepare.

Despite the later kickoff, two players unfortunately won't be ready in time for MNF.

Running back Jaylen Warren and cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon have been officially ruled out for this game. Both players logged DNPs throughout practice this week, so this news doesn't come as a major surprise.

Warren is nursing a hamstring injury he picked up last Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals. The undrafted rookie has been solid in the change-of-pace role behind Najee Harris, recording 327 yards from scrimmage this season.

Witherspoon, meanwhile, will sit once again due to his lingering hamstring issue. He initially returned from the injury in Week 8, but is now set to miss his second straight game and seventh overall in 2022. He's recorded an interception in four appearances so far this year.

Pittsburgh heads into Week 12 as a 2.5-point underdog, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds.
