The Pittsburgh Steelers will take on the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday night at Heinz Field and below is a best guess as to what the inactive list will look like this week. The official list of inactives will be announced 90 minutes before kickoff.
Landry Jones – No changes with Jones as this will be his 14th straight game that he doesn’t dress.
Brett Keisel – Keisel is having problems shaking that foot injury of his and as a result wasn’t able to practice all week. He was ruled out on Friday and you have to seriously wonder if he will make it back for the season finale at this point.
Derek Moye – Moye is unlikely to dress once again with four healthy receivers ahead of him on the depth chart.
David Snow – The Steelers get Kelvin Beachum back this week, so this almost guarantees that Snow will be down once again.
Isaiah Green – Green did not dress last week and you have to think he’ll be down again this week due to the numbers game.
David Paulson – The last two inactives are where the guess work comes in. With Matt Spaeth now back, Paulson has been buried on the depth chart. In fact, he hasn’t played a snap on offense since Week 12. Even Michael Palmer has played four snaps since that time. There is no need to dress four tight ends for this game.
Steve McLendon – The Steelers promoted rookie undrafted free agent Brian Arnfelt to the 53 man roster on Saturday and that makes me think that McLendon might not play this week after he re-aggravated an ankle injury last Sunday. McLendon failed to practice all week, so this one is tough to call.
