Reading The Tea Leaves Of Likely Week 17 Inactive Players Versus Dolphins

This weeks tea leaves are pretty murky as far as game day inactives versus the Dolphins on Sunday. Quarterback Charlie Batch will be the number 3 again with all likelihood this week as Dennis Dixon is the clear number 2 now. Safety Troy Polamalu and guard Chris Kemoeatu in all likelihood will be inactive this week. Kemoeatu might still play, but I look for Ramon Foster to start again in his place and that means Tony Hills will likely be given a helmet again this week while rookie Kraig Urbik seeing his normal spot on the inactive list. Newly signed cornerback Trae Williams probably is not up to speed yet as well and will likely sit. Defensive ends Ra\’Shon Harris and Nick Eason will likely both be active with it looking like Brett Keisel might miss the game because of stingers. The last real mystery is the final inactive spot. Wide receiver Joey Galloway will likely remain down as well. Fullback Carey Davis would likely be the last inactive. You can see the murkiness as only 4 or so players I am very confident in being inactive. Depending on the health of Kemoeatu and Keisel this could severly alter the list.
