Pittsburgh Steelers veteran cornerback Joe Haden and rookie center Kendrick Green were activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list on Saturday.

The move comes one day after wide receiver Diontae Johnson was activated from a one-day stint on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

The Steelers (8-7-1) visit the Baltimore Ravens (8-8) on Sunday in the regular-season finale. Pittsburgh can clinch a playoff berth win a win as well as an Indianapolis Colts’ loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars and any result other than a tie in the Las Vegas Raiders-Los Angeles Chargers game.

Haden, 32, has 34 tackles in 11 games (all starts) this season. The three-time Pro Bowl selection has 611 tackles and 29 interceptions in 157 games (148 starts) in 12 seasons with the Cleveland Browns (2010-16) and Steelers.

Green, 23, started the Steelers’ first 15 games this season before sitting out their 26-14 victory over the Browns on Monday with a calf injury. He was selected by Pittsburgh in the third round of the 2021 NFL Draft out of Illinois.

The Steelers also placed wide receiver James Washington on the reserve/COVID-19 list on Saturday.
