The Pittsburgh Steelers have now released their list of seven players who will be inactive for Sunday’s Week 5 home game against the Jacksonville Jaguars and it includes tackle Marcus Gilbert, who ended the week listed as doubtful with a hamstring injury.

However, after failing to practice on Thursday and Friday it was evident he would miss a third consecutive game. With Gilbert sidelined, Chris Hubbard will once again start in his place at right tackle.

This makes two weeks in a row that Rogers and Harrison have both been inactive. With Rogers down again this week fellow wide receiver Justin Hunter gets a helmet.

Safety Mike Mitchell returns to the field this week after missing the team’s Week 4 game with a hamstring injury. It was the first game he’s missed during his time with the Steelers.
