While the Pittsburgh Steelers got good news on the injury front regarding Ryan Shazier being available for the Week 2 game against the Cincinnati Bengals, the news wasn't as good with wide receiver Markus Wheaton. The 4th year wide out is listed as inactive with a shoulder injury, keeping him out of the lineup for the second straight week.
Inactives for @Steelers: WR Wheaton, QB Metrenberger, CB Golson, FB Nix, LB SJohnson, C Wallace, DE Walton— Bob Labriola (@BobLabriola) September 18, 2016
Wheaton returned to practice on Wednesday, being a full participant, but his participation waned as the week progressed, which usually means he experienced some sort of set back with his shoulder.
Other inactives vs. the Bengals were quarterback Zach Mettenberger, cornerback Senquez Golson, fullback Roosevelt Nix, linebacker Steven Johnson, center Cody Wallace and defensive end L.T. Walton.
Kickoff is set for 1:00 p.m. for Steelers vs. Bengals, stay tuned to BTSC for all the latest news on this AFC North grudge match.
