New, comments

The Pittsburgh Steelers will have the best wide receiver in the NFL at their disposal Monday night as Antonio Brown will be in the lineup despite having a toe injury.

The Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals are almost ready for kickoff, and the final step before the teams head into the locker rooms for the last time is the release of inactive lists.

For Pittsburgh, the team had two big injuries of note, Antonio Brown (toe) and Mike Mitchell (ankle). While Brown will be active for the big AFC North show down, Mitchell was ruled out for the game.

Full inactive list for the Steelers in Week 13:

QB Joshua Dobbs (healthy)
CB Joe Haden (fibula)
S Mike Mitchell (ankle)
TE Vance McDonald (ankle)
OLB James Harrison (knee)
NT Daniel McCullers (healthy)
OT Matt Feiler

Brown being in the lineup is a huge lift for the Steelers, who will have a full wide receiving corps as JuJu Smith-Schuster also returned to the lineup after missing the Week 12 game vs. the Packers with a hamstring injury.

Other than Brown’s status, there really weren’t any other surprises on the inactive list. The biggest question remaining for the Steelers is how effective Brown will be on his injured toe.

Below is the Bengals’ official inactive list:
