Steelers inactives: Kelvin Beachum out, Mike Adams will start vs. Dolphins

New, comments

Le'Veon Bell will play, just 10 days after suffering a head injury. Mike Adams returns to the starting left tackle spot for the first time since Week 4.

Being thrown into the fire is appropriate for Mike Adams, if it wasn't snowing in Pittsburgh.

Adams will return to the starting lineup as the Steelers' left tackle in their Week 14 game against the Miami Dolphins. Regular starter Kelvin Beachum is inactive with a knee injury, giving Adams his first start at left tackle since Week 4.

And it's one of the toughest opponents the Steelers' offensive line will have faced in the time he was absent. The Dolphins boast one of the league's most dominant defensive line, with an outstanding edge rusher off Adams' side, Cameron Wake.

The Steelers will also be without Brett Keisel, which was known before the game. Along with Keisel and Beachum, sitting out are WR Derek Moye, CB Isaiah Green, ILB Kion Wilson and OL David Snow (recently acquired).

LaMarr Woodley will make his return to the field for the first time in three weeks. Also, running back Le'Veon Bell, who was taken off the field in Week 13 with a head injury, was cleared to play.
