The Pittsburgh Steelers have released their inactives for their game against the Los Angeles Rams. With four players ruled out before the game and wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster listed as questionable, the list is made up of three healthy scratches and the four players out due to injury.

James Conner is dealing with a sprained AC joint in his shoulder sustained late in the Steelers’ Week 8 game against the Dolphins. While the Steelers were hopeful Conner could return this week, especially after returning to practice on Wednesday in a limited capacity, his Week 11 status will also be up in the air as the Steelers will have a short week of preparation for Thursday Night Football against the Cleveland Browns.

Benny Snell Jr. was also ruled out on Friday after having knee surgery last week. As to when Snell will be able to return is still unknown. Roosevelt Nix had another setback with his injured knee which will cause him to miss his sixth game of the 2019 season. Another player who was ruled out on Friday was guard Ramon Foster as he is still in the NFL’s concussion protocol after failing to practice either Thursday or Friday.

As for the rest of the inactive list, third-string quarterback Paxton Lynch is inactive yet again as the Steelers are not dealing with any injuries at the quarterback position. The other players filling up inactive list are TE Zack Gentry and DT L.T. Walton. Re-joining the active roster is CB Justin Layne. Also, linebacker Robert Spillane who was just activated from the practice squad this week will get his first regular-season helmet for the Steelers in 2019.

As for the Rams, their inactives can be seen below. Wide receiver Brandin Cooks was ruled out on Friday.
