Given the way the Pittsburgh Steelers’ injury report has impacted game day participation so far this season, their official list of inactive players for Week 4 is very much as expected. Any players listed as doubtful on Friday have missed the game that follows each week, and it should come as no surprise to see the Steelers have included both Morgan Burnett and Mike Hilton among the inactives for their game against the Baltimore Ravens.
An elbow injury for Hilton will cost him his first game of the season, while a groin injury for Burnett will sideline him for the second time this year. Cameron Sutton is expected to see snaps as the nickel cornerback in place of Hilton and Burnett will be replaced by a combination of Terrell Edmunds and Nat Berhe as he was in Week 3. Marcus Allen also gets his first chance to dress for a game in 2018 with both defensive backs out.
The return of Ramon Foster and David DeCastro sends Zach Banner back to the ranks of the inactives this Sunday, but interestingly, Pittsburgh will keep an extra offensive lineman on the active roster against the Ravens in Matt Feiler. Perhaps as a preventative measure.
Banner rejoins some familiar faces who have made this list their home for most of the season. Mason Rudolph and Marcus Allen are the only players on the roster yet to dress on game day, with L.T. Walton and Justin Hunter each only having suited up once this year.
