The Pittsburgh Steelers are minutes away from their Week-6 matchup against the NFC West-leading Arizona Cardinals at Heinz Field. As is customary, the team reports inactive players vs. the Cardinals this week as follows:

Highlighting the inactives for the Steelers this week is none other than Jarvis Jones. Jones suffered a hip injury in the team's 24-20 win over the San Diego Chargers on Monday Night Football. The decision to keep Jones out vs. the Cardinals means James Harrison not only will start, but will get a significant amount of playing time. Look for Arthur Moats to be a swing linebacker and play both sides as the team will focus on a three-man rotation at OLB. Anthony Chickillo is active for the first time in his NFL career.

Other inactives to note are Ben Roethlisberger (knee), Ryan Shazier (shoulder), Will Allen (ankle), Cortez Allen (knee), Chris Hubbard (healthy scratch) and Jesse James (healthy scratch).

With Will Allen missing the game, this equates to the first-ever NFL start for Robert Golden. The Steelers will go into the game with three safeties. Mike Mitchell and Golden to start and Shamarko Thomas as the backup safety.
