Reading The Tea Leaves Of Likely Inactive Players Versus Vikings
This weeks tea leaves are pretty readable as far as game day inactives versus the Vikings go. The first 4 on the list are for sure: Dennis Dixon, Ra\’Shon Harris, Kraig Urbik and Tony Hills. Baring injury, they will be listed every week for a while. There is no reason to believe wide receiver Limas Sweed will get back on the field this week, so Shaun McDonald likely gets another hat this week. Cornerback Keenan Lewis is becoming a regular on the list over the past few weeks as well. With David Johnson back healthy, fullback Carey Davis is unlikely to dress again. The last spot in all likelihood will be linebacker Andre Frazier. He missed a day of practice on Thursday with that troublesome thigh/quad injury and I suspect the Steelers will let him sit another week.
