It's not so much about who is inactive for the Steelers for today's AFC Divisional Round Game against the Jaguars, as it is about who is active.
After missing the final two games of the regular season with a calf injury, Antonio Brown is active and ready to go. The unanimous AP All-Pro selection was a full participant in practice on Wednesday and Thursday, but did miss practice Friday with an illness, but is good to go.
Also active are Artie Burns, Stephon Tuitt and Javon Hargrave, all who went into the week healthy but were hampered by injuries during it. Burns and Tuitt were limited in practice Wednesday, held out on Thursday, and full participants on Friday. Hargrave was limited on Thursday, but was a full-go on Friday.
"I feel really good," said Tuitt on Friday. "I'll be ready to go."
The Steelers will need a full complement of players on defense against the Jaguars, as well as every weapon on offense.
On the inactive list for today are quarterback Joshua Dobbs, receiver Justin Hunter and offensive linemen Jerald Hawkins and Matt Feiler. On defense cornerback Coty Sensabaugh and safety J.J. Wilcox, as well as defensive lineman Vince Williams, are also inactive.
