Ebron has accumulated 558 yards and five touchdowns in his first regular season with the Steelers. Vance McDonald and Kevin Radar played in his place against the Browns. 

Linebacker Cassius Marsh was also activated from the Reserve/COVID-19 list. Marsh was considered "high risk" close contact with Haden as well.
