Todd Haley will not be able to see one of his favorite players Monday night in Pittsburgh.
Kansas City receiver Steve Breaston is a healthy scratch for Monday night’s game. He was brought to Kansas City last season by Haley when he was the head coach. Breaston played for Haley when he was an assistant in Arizona. Haley was fired by the Chiefs last December and he is now the Steelers’ offensive coordinator. Rookie Devon Wylie is active in Breaston’s place.
Breaston has six catches in new offensive coordinator Brian Daboll’s system. He had 61 catches last season and he’s had, at least, 47 catches a season since catching eight balls as a rookie in Arizona in 2007.
It is raining in Pittsburgh on Monday.

Oakland running back Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson – who both suffered high ankle sprains against Tampa Bay in Week 9 and didn’t play Sunday at Baltimore – are still in walking boots. They will likely not play Sunday against New Orleans barring major improvement.

Oakland is putting reserve linebacker Travis Goethel on injured reserve because of a season-ending knee injury he suffered Sunday at Baltimore. Bringing back linebacker Vic So'oto is not an option.
