Reading The Tea Leaves Of Likely Inactive Players Versus Broncos
This weeks tea leaves are pretty readable as far as game day inactives versus the Broncos go for Monday night. The first 3 on the list are for sure: Dennis Dixon, Kraig Urbik and Tony Hills are givens and there is still no reason to believe wide receiver Limas Sweed will get back on the field this week unless it is more for special teams reasons, so Shaun McDonald will likely be active again. Travis Kirschke and Lawrence Timmons will sit out injured and although not official, it seems the Steelers will be cautious and sit out Ryan Clark as well. This should mean Ra\’Shon Harris and Keenan Lewis get hats this week. The final inactive spot is likely going to Carey Davis unless the Steelers deem him needed more on special teams. In that case you could see Arnold Harrison inactive, but with Timmons already down, I do not see that happening.
Check back here for the OFFICIAL LIST 90 minutes before game time.
