Steelers inactive for week 5 against Broncos – .


After three weeks of injuries that dictate who is inactive on game day, the Steelers are heading into tonight’s game against the relatively healthy Seattle Seahawks.

Yes, the team will be without receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster, who was placed on the reserve / injured list on Saturday due to a shoulder injury that required surgery.

Receiving good news, Chase Claypool and James Washington, who both suffered injuries during the week, are active tonight.

The Seahawks are also grappling with their own issues as quarterback Russell Wilson underwent injured finger surgery this week. Wilson, along with running back Chris Carson, were both placed on the reserve / injured list this week.

Geno Smith will make his first quarterback start in nearly four years, but the defense knows how dangerous he can be.

“It’s a big challenge,” said linebacker TJ Watt. “He’s been in the system for a while, and it’s not a situation where they’re just going to pass the ball and not trust him. I feel like they have a lot of confidence in him right after the last game they played, even though it’s the back half of the game. He was throwing the ball. He looks comfortable in the pocket and he is dangerous with his legs. It will be a big challenge for us. ”

One player the Steelers are happy to have in the fold is cornerback Cameron Sutton. Sutton was inactive last week against the Broncos but is back in good health this week.

“Cam is awesome,” said linebacker Joe Schobert. “He’s a great voice on the pitch. In some secondary situations Cam and I are working opposite each other, and we have to be on the same page. It is a reassuring voice. He’s been here for a long time. He knows what he is talking about. He studies very hard during the week. He knows what the other team is trying to do in some lineups and how they are trying to attack us, so it’s good to have him there and to be able to talk back and forth before the crash. ”

One player who continues to be on the inactive roster is defensive lineman Carlos Davis. While Davis has trained on a limited basis with a knee injury that has plagued him all season, he will still miss his fifth straight game, inactive tonight.

Offensive tackle Zach Banner, who was activated from the reserve / designated injured list for the comeback on Saturday, will not be dressing tonight and is inactive for the Steelers.

The full list of inactive is below.
