Inactives For Tonight’s Steelers vs. Bears Game

According to the Steelers’ official website, here are the lists of the inactive players for tonight’s game:

Pittsburgh Steelers

QB Landry Jones

WR Derek Moye

RB Le’Veon Bell

OL Cody Wallace

CB Isaiah Green

CB Cortez Allen

NT Hebron Fangupo

Chicago Bears

RB Michael Ford

WR Marquess Wilson

OT Jonathan Scott

OG James Brown

CB C.J. Wilson

DE David Bass

DT Zach Minter

The biggest positive about these two lists for Pittsburgh is the fact that Heath Miller will be active for tonight’s game.  While I am not sure how much the two-time “Pro Bowler” will play, his presence alone should be a huge plus for the Steelers’ struggling offense.  Miller being active was probably the biggest reason why Derek Moye is inactive tonight.

Why they would not activate Moye over David Johnson or David Paulson is a bit baffling considering neither player can provide the type of presence in the red zone that the 6’5″ Moye can.  Then again, Todd Haley has been pretty inept when it has come to tailoring his offensive strategy to the talent on his roster.

The absence of Cortez Allen will be a big loss for Pittsburgh’s defense as well.  Hopefully William Gay, Shamarko Thomas, and Robert Golden can step up in his place and keep Martellus Bennett and Chicago’s backup receivers under-wraps tonight.
