The Pittsburgh Steelers will take on the Baltimore Ravens Sunday 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.
Jarvis Jones – Jones admitted on Friday that he really didn’t do anything this week while being checked out for a concussion. Being as he virtually missed all three days of practice, that usually doesn’t bode well for Steelers rookies when it comes to getting a helmet on Sunday. This really could go either way with him. If he winds up dressing, then cornerback Isaiah Green will likely be down. Will Jones play? I really don’t know.
Landry Jones – Jones is another easy one this week for the inactive list as he has been on it every game so far this season.
Richard Gordon – Gordon was signed on Tuesday, practiced on Wednesday, was injured on Thursday and ruled out on Friday. Welcome to Pittsburgh and the inactive list, Dick.
Markus Wheaton – Wheaton is still recovering from surgery to repair the broken pinky finger that he suffered in while in London and will not play this week.
Isaac Redman – Redman hasn’t dressed since he was demoted to the bottom of the depth chart, so it is not hard to guess that he will be inactive once again.
Guy Whimper – It looks as if Cody Wallace will finally dress this week as the backup center and being as Mike Tomlin usually only dresses seven offensive linemen, I’m going to guess that Whimper will be down this week.
Hebron Fangupo – This last inactive could go either way and it might very well be tied to Jones’ status. Brett Keisel is working through an abdomen problem, but appears to be fine, so I will guess that Fangupo will be down once again.
