Most importantly, cornerback Joe Haden is active for the Steelers and will play against the Ravens in Week 12. Hayden injured his ankle against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 11 and was listed as questionable coming into the game.
The player who was already known to be on the inactive list since he was ruled out over the weekend was running back Jaylen Samuels. Injured in the Steelers Week 10 matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals, Samuels was ruled out with a quad injury.
The one player left who has been on the inactive list every week in 2020 is quarterback Josh Dobbs. One player joining Dobbs for Week 12 is tight end Kevin Rader who was promoted to the Steelers 53-man roster this week.
The final two players on the Steelers inactive list are saftety Antoine Brooks Jr. and linebacker Jayrone Elliott. Brooks was the Steelers sixth-round draft pick in 2020 and was elevated to the 53-man roster as a Covid replacement earlier this week. Brooks has appeared in two games for the Steelers so far in 2020 in Week 9 against the Dallas Cowboys and Week 10 against the Cincinnati Bengals. In the Bengals game, Brooks played 47% of the Steelers defensive snaps. Jayrone Elliott has been all over the place for the Steelers between being on the practice squad, active for three different games, and on the 53-man roster but inactive on game day.
