With kickoff just over an hour away, the inactives for today’s Steelers/ Saints game have been announced.
For the Steelers:
QB Landry Jones, WR Justin Brown, CB Cortez Allen, CB B.W. Webb, LB Ryan Shazier, OT Marcus Gilbert, and NT Steve McLendon.
The only names on the list that could be considered surprises are Cortez Allen and to a lesser extent, Ryan Shazier. Allen has a cast on to protect a broken thumb that he had surgically repaired recently. Shazier did not seem overly confident earlier in the week that he would be a go for today’s game.
For the Saints:
WR Robert Meachem, RB Khiry Robinson, LB Kyle Knox, OT Nick Becton, DB Terrence Frederick, NT Lawrence Virgil, and DB Stanley Jean-Baptiste.
The Saints recently placed WR Brandin Cooks and NT Brodrick Bunkley on Injured Reserve. NT John Jenkins will start in Bunkley’s place.
