The Steelers inactive list wasn’t certain, unlike earlier this year when the team had to make several roster moves just to give the team enough players on game day, and with only Darrius Heyward-Bey (foot) and Shamarko Thomas (concussion) ruled out, the team had some tough decisions to make.
The inactive list certainly had some surprises on it.
Inactives for @Steelers: Mettenberger, SThomas, DWilliams, Ramon Foster, Hargrave, Heyward-Bey, DRichardson. Both PKs will be active.— Bob Labriola (@BobLabriola) December 11, 2016
Inactives for the Steelers are:
QB Zach Mettenberger (healthy scratch)
S Shamarko Thomas (concussion)
RB DeAngelo Williams (knee)
G Ramon Foster (chest)
DT Javon Hargrave (concussion)
WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (foot)
RB Daryl Richardson (healthy scratch)
The Steelers have both Chris Boswell and Randy Bullock active, in case Boswell re-injures his abdomen. The loss of Foster is significant, and will lead to the second start of the season for B.J. Finney. Also, losing Javon Hargrave for the game will be an increased amount of playing time for L.T. Walton, Ricardo Mathews and Daniel McCullers.
