By WILL GRAVES,  AP Sports Writer

PITTSBURGH (AP) — The slumping Pittsburgh Steelers will have to scramble for a playoff berth without defensive end Cam Heyward.
Heyward is out for the remainder of the season after suffering an upper-body injury in Sunday’s loss to Dallas. Heyward posted a message on Instagram on Tuesday indicating he was done for the season, but did not go into specifics about the injury.Coach Mike Tomlin said earlier Tuesday that Heyward was dealing with a pectoral or chest injury and was seeking a second opinion.

Heyward wrote “my role will change as I can not play but it will not change the goals the team has set out.”

Pittsburgh (4-5) has dropped four straight heading into Sunday’s game at winless Cleveland (0-10).
