With just one exception, the Pittsburgh Steelers’ list of inactive players for Week 6 looks exactly the same as it did in Week 5. While the injured L.J. Fort replaces the now healthy Vince Williams, Darrius Heyward-Bey misses his second game of the year and Morgan Burnett is sidelined for the fourth week in a row.

Justin Hunter gets another chance to suit up for a game with Heyward-Bey sitting out, but for the rest of the regular names on the inactive report, it is business as usual this Sunday.

Marcus Allen and Mason Rudolph are still waiting for their first opportunity to dress on game day and L.T. Walton has only been active for a game once this season. Zach Banner has been active on just two occasions. Barring injury, none of these names are expected to be seen in uniform on Sunday anytime soon.

Recently promoted cornerback Brian Allen keeps his place on the gameday in only his second week since being signed from the practice squad.
