Inactives for @Steelers: WR Rogers, S Golden, CB Gilbert, FB Nix, LB Shazier, C Wallace, T Gilbert— Bob Labriola (@BobLabriola) October 9, 2016
WR Eli Rogers
Safety Robert Golden
CB Justin Gilbert
FB Roosevelt Nix
ILB Ryan Shazier
C/G Cody Wallace
OT Marcus Gilbert
There is really no shock from this list. Pittsburgh ruled out a whopping nine players on their Friday practice report. Due to so many members of the black and gold missing the game, the team had to move some pieces around to help accommodate he need to have at least 46 active players on their game day roster. This is what caused the team to put CB Senquez Golson and OT Ryan Harris on the injured reserve list Saturday. When they placed Golson and Harris on IR, they signed CB Al-Hajj Shabazz, OT Matt Feiler, who are both active for the Week 5 game.
For the New York Jets, the following players are inactive. Notable players on the list include CB Darrelle Revis and WR Erik Decker.
