Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Joe Haden had to leave Sunday's matchup with the Indianapolis Colts and is now questionable to return with a left leg injury.

After the game, coach Mike Tomlin said Haden sustained the injury high up on his fibula.

After Ryan Shazier's interception at the Colts 10-yard line with 12:52 to go, Roethlisberger hooked up with wide-open Vance McDonald for another 7-yard score.

Roethlisberger found JuJu Smith-Schuster on a 7-yard TD pass midway through the third quarter to make it 17-9.

A third-round pick of the Patriots in 2016 out of North Carolina State, Brissett won a Super Bowl with New England last season.

The Colts dominated for the first half of the game but failed to secure the 14-point lead they owned at one point in the second half. The team later clarified Brissett had passed two different diagnostic tests, which allowed him to return to the game.

Boswell also had a chance to give Pittsburgh the lead with a 37-yard field goal with 6:17 left but the ball hit the right goal post and bounced off.

Steelers cornerback Joe Haden left Sunday's 20-17 win over the Colts with a fracture in his left leg.

The independent neurologist was evaluating Colts' defensive back Kenny Moore II at the time and was not available to check out Brissett.

Colts: Will have a much needed bye before hosing Tennessee on November 26.
