The Pittsburgh Steelers will only be missing two offensive starters due to injury against the Oakland Raiders after both defensive players listed as questionable on Friday were left off inactive report in Week 14.
While James Conner and Marcus Gilbert will miss the matchup with injuries that sidelined them all week long in practice, Morgan Burnett and Anthony Chickillo will both play against the Raiders. Conner will be replaced by a combination of Jaylen Samuels and Stevan Ridley and Matt Feiler will see his seventh consecutive start in place of Gilbert.
With the return of Burnett to the game day roster, Marcus Allen is back among the inactives, while Ola Adeniyi is something of a surprise as a healthy scratch as Cameron Sutton returns. They will join familiar faces in Mason Rudolph, Zach Banner and L.T. Walton as the core group of players who have been inactive most Sunday’s. Rudolph is now the only name on the roster who has yet to dress for a game this season.
Despite being listed with injuries earlier in the week, Ryan Switzer, Roosevelt Nix and Kam Canaday will all suit up against Oakland.
