Steelers inactives: McLendon won't play vs. Cincinnati in Week 15

Karl Walter

Steelers nose tackle Steve McLendon will miss Pittsburgh's Week 15 game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

The Steelers will take on the Cincinnati Bengals without nose tackle Steve McLendon.

Wide receiver Derek Moye, cornerback Isaiah Green, quarterback Landry Jones, linebacker Stevenson Sylvester and defensive end Brett Keisel are also inactive.

Moye had his lone career touchdown catch in Pittsburgh's 20-10 loss at Cincinnati in Week 2. He won't get a chance to add to that total tonight.

Undrafted rookie defensive end Brian Arnfelt will dress, just a day after being signed to the active roster. He spent this season on the practice squad, but was brought up, presumably, due to Keisel's injury, and the potential of Ziggy Hood being available only on a limited basis. Hood is expected to start at defensive end, and Al Woods will likely replace McLendon at nose tackle, but they may both rotate around as the game goes on.
