The Pittsburgh Steelers will take on the Detroit Lions 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.
Landry Jones – No changes at the top of the inactives as Jones has no business dressing again. This will mark his tenth straight game as being inactive.
Shamarko Thomas – Thomas might be on this list a few weeks with a high ankle sprain. With him officially out, his could result in DeMarcus Van Dyke getting a helmet so that he can help on special teams.
LaMarr Woodley – Woodley is listed as doubtful and will almost assuredly not play. Jason Worilds will start in his place and that means Chris Carter will likely get a helmet for a change.
Ramon Foster – The general consensus seems to be that Foster will not be able to play Sunday after suffering a right ankle sprain last week. He did not practice at all this past week and as a result will likely be down. This should result in Cody Wallace getting a helmet and Guy Whimper starting at left guard.
Brett Keisel – Keisel could go either way, but being as he didn’t practice all week with plantar fasciitis, I am going to guess that they give him the week off. If this happens, Hebron Fangupo would be the candidate to get Keisel’s helmet.
Kion Wilson – Wilson hasn’t dressed since being signed back to the roster several weeks ago.
Richard Gordon – Gordon has been on the roster for several weeks now but has yet to dress for a game.
