Steelers inactives for game vs. Browns

Posted Dec 31, 2017

Who is in, who is out this week for the Steelers as they take on the Cleveland Browns.

This week’s inactives is virtual who’s who of the starting offense as Coach Mike Tomlin is resting a bunch of starters to keep them healthy for the playoff run.

Ben Roethlisberger leads the list of inactives, with Landry Jones getting the start and Joshua Dobbs serving as his backup against the Browns. Antonio Brown is also inactive, his due to a calf injury, but Le’Veon Bell is also getting a rest this week and Stevan Ridley and Fitzgerald Toussaint will hold things down for the running back.

Maurkice Pouncey and David DeCastro, two players who didn’t miss a game all season, will both get a rest as they are inactive. The line will have B.J. Finney, Chris Hubbard, Matt Feiler and Jerald Hawkins all active today, along with starters Marcus Gilbert, Alejandro Villanueva and Ramon Foster.

Cameron Heyward is the only starter on defense who is inactive, giving the veteran lineman a chance to rest as well. Daniel McCullers will be active this week.

Rounding out the inactives is Coty Sensabaugh, who was inactive last week as well with a shoulder injury.
