Steelers inactives list vs. Patriots in Week 9

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

No surprises, rookie Markus Wheaton will miss his fourth straight game.

The Steelers had previously announced right guard David DeCastro and cornerback Curtis Brown would be out for this game. It wasn't much more of a surprise to learn rookie wide receiver Markus Wheaton would miss his fourth straight game, stemming from a broken and surgically repaired pinkie finger he suffered in the Steelers' Week 4 game against Minnesota.

Also out for the Steelers' game at New England in Week 9 are linebacker Kion Wilson, quarterback Landry Jones, nose tackle Loni Fangupo and tight end Richard Gordon.

The Steelers (2-5) are looking to beat the Patriots with starting quarterback Tom Brady for this first time in his career. They defeated the Matt Cassel-led Patriots in 2008, but haven't played in New England since.
