The Steelers have elevated linebacker Myles Jack and safety Eric Rowe from the practice squad to the active/inactive roster, the team announced.

This isn’t necessarily surprising as both Jack and Rowe played fantastic games against the Bengals last Saturday, and had huge impacts, respectively, on the blowout win. Rowe intercepted a pass in his first game as a Steeler, which were one of three interceptions for the Steelers defense. Jack filled in for an injured Elandon Roberts, wearing the green dot in his first game since returning to the Steelers out of retirement. He had six tackles, a sack, and very nearly hauled in an interception of his own.

With Roberts out against the Seahawks, as well as safety Minkah Fitzpatrick also not suiting up, expect a healthy does of both Jack and Rowe against Seattle on Sunday as the Steelers continue to try and keep their playoff hopes alive.
