For the Steelers, their inactive list is below:
Inactives: QB Dobbs, WR Rogers, FS Mitchell, T Hawkins, T Gilbert, OLB Harrison, NT McCullers— Bob Labriola (@BobLabriola) October 1, 2017
The full inactive list is:
QB Joshua Dobbs
WR Eli Rogers
FS Mike Mitchell
OT Jerald Hawkins
OT Marcus Gilbert
OLB James Harrison
NT Daniel McCullers
Several players on this list come as a surprise, and some raise some eyebrows. Eli Rogers being sat down for Justin Hunter tops the list, but Mike Mitchell and James Harrison both being inactive certainly came as a surprise to many. This means J.J. Wilcox will likely get his first start in a black and gold uniform, while the return of T.J. Watt, and the team not utilizing Harrison, makes placing No. 92 on the inactive list an easy decision.
Other than that, it is good to see Stephon Tuitt and Watt back on the field again in this hated AFC North rivalry.
The Steelers and Ravens will square off at 1:00 p.m. ET at M&T Bank Stadium, a place Pittsburgh hasn’t left victorious since 2012. For Ben Roethlisberger it has been even longer, since 2010 to be exact.
Regardless, the Steelers hope to reverse that trend, and you can follow along for all the updates and news coming at you during the game by sticking here with BTSC throughout the Week 4 contest!
