The Pittsburgh Steelers have just one injured player listed among their inactives on Sunday as James Conner sits with an ankle injury and Ryan Switzer will play despite a questionable designation on Friday’s injury report.

Having been downgraded from questionable to doubtful on Saturday, it comes as no surprise to see Conner named among the inactives in Week 15 and a combination of Jaylen Samuels and Stevan Ridley will take his snaps against New England.

Even though Switzer has been cleared to play, Eli Rogers will also dressed for the game after he was activated from the PUP list yesterday. Despite beginning the week on the injury report, Ben Roethlisberger, Anthony Chickillo and Sean Davis will all suit up against the Patriots.

For the rest of the names on the inactive report, it is business as usual on game day as a healthy scratch for Mason Rudolph, Zach Banner, Marcus Allen, Ola Adeniyi and L.T. Walton.
