You have to win in all three phases.
You hear that sentiment from coaches all across the league, and the Pittsburgh Steelers are getting a special teams player, and back up safety, back on the field in Jordan Dangerfield.
Inactives for @Steelers: QB Mettenberger, S Thomas, RB DWilliams, RB Richardson, T Mihalik, TE Grimble, WR Heyward-Bey— Bob Labriola (@BobLabriola) November 24, 2016
The Steelers released their inactive list for the Thanksgiving night game against the Indianapolis Colts, and Dangerfield, who had missed the past two games with a groin injury, was not listed, meaning he will be active.
The rest of the team’s inactive list is as follows:
QB Zach Mettenberger (healthy scratch)
S Shamarko Thomas (groin)
RB DeAngelo Williams (knee)
RB Daryl Richardson (healthy scratch)
OT Brian Mihalik (healthy scratch)
TE Xavier Grimble (quadriceps)
WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (foot)
On a short week the Steelers are a pretty healthy team heading into Week 12. The team looks to not only shake their history of not playing well on Thursdays, but also their tendency to lose on Thanksgiving.
