The Pittsburgh Steelers are set to play the Oakland Raiders at Heinz Field in Week 9, and they have turned in their list of players who won't be active Sunday.

The list is highlighted by quarterback Mike Vick and running back Isaiah Pead. With Vick being a healthy scratch, it proves that Landry Jones has supplanted him as the team's primary backup to Ben Roethlisberger. As for Pead, the newly acquired running back will have to prove he is ready to take the field, and it seems he will have another week to get up to speed.

The other inactives are CB Doran Grant, LB Terence Garvin, OT Cameron Stingily, TE Matt Spaeth and DE L.T. Walton. With Jesse James not being inactive, it means he will be getting a helmet vs. the Raiders in place of Spaeth who is out with a knee injury.

Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. EDT, be sure to keep it here on BTSC for the latest news surrounding the black and gold.
