As is customary in the NFL, 90 minutes before kickoff teams have to submit their inactive list, or players who are on the team's 53-man roster, but aren't dressing for that specific game. For the Pittsburgh Steelers vs. the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 8 action, there were no surprises on the list for the black and gold.
Inactives for @Steelers: QB Vick, WR Murphy, SS WAllen, LB Garvin, RT Stingily, TE James, DE Tuitt— Bob Labriola (@BobLabriola) November 1, 2015
For the Steelers, QB Mike Vick, WR/QB Tyler Murphy, S Will Allen, LB Terence Garvin, OT Cameron Stingily, TE Jesse James and DE Stephon Tuitt are all inactive Sunday.
The 4-3 Steelers will be hosting the 6-0 Bengals at Heinz Field for a 1:00 p.m. EDT kickoff, a game which the Steelers desperately need to win to keep their hopes of back-to-back division titles alive. The Steelers will not only be welcoming back their franchise quarterback in Ben Roethlisberger, but will also be wearing their 1934 throwback "Bumble Bee" uniforms.
