Steelers pondering changes in the secondary as they head to Houston

The Steelers will get veteran cornerback Joe Haden back in the lineup Monday afternoon in Houston, but they might not be standing pat in the secondary.

Rookie cornerback Cameron Sutton took the reps with the first-team defense in practice Saturday morning while second-year corner Artie Burns took the reps with the second-team, Burns confirmed.

When he was asked if the coaches told him his role would be different for the Texans game, Burns said: “I don’t know. We’ll have to wait until Monday.”

I'd be ok with Haden and Sutton back there.

Interesting. I know Burns seems to be getting torched more and more, but I didn't think he was close to losing a starting position. I didn't think Sutton earned a starting job either.

Hmmm well if the coaching staff thinks Sutton is an upgrade... Though I thought our secondary was solid with Haden as #1 and Burns as #2

Haden had a huge impact in the game against the Texans and if you take a non-holding call against Hopkins in the endzone when he made his "catch", then he was pretty much taken away the entire game.

Should we face the Patriots****** again, I see Haden making Gronks day a living hell
