The Pittsburgh Steelers have released their inactive list as they prepare to play the Chicago Bears in Week 3 of NFL action, and the list was highlighted by Stephon Tuitt.

See the entire list:

The full list of players inactive for Pittsburgh:

QB Joshua Dobbs
WR Justin Hunter
CB Brian Allen
T Jerald Hawkins
T Marcus Gilbert
OLB T.J. Watt
DE Stephon Tuitt

Tuitt, who injured his biceps in Week 1, has missed the past two weeks, and was reportedly close to playing vs. the Bears, but has been held out to give him another week to prepare for the Baltimore Ravens in Week 4.

Other than Tuitt, there really are no other surprises to the inactive list, since Gilbert and Watt were ruled out for the game Friday after the team’s final practice before heading to the Windy City.

Tyson Alualu, who was acquired in the offseason via free agency, will get the start in Tuitt’s place for the second straight week.

Stay tuned to BTSC for the latest on this story, and others, heading into the Week 3 tilt.
