The Pittsburgh Steelers will play the Chargers on Sunday Night Football and could be without some guys they are used to not having.

Marcus Gilbert – Still has not been able to make it back from his knee injury. It seems he had a setback in his healing. He is listed as out.

Morgan Burnett – He has had injury problems this year but the back injury may be a new one. He is listed as doubtful and I don’t think he will play. It looks like Marcus Allen will get his first helmet of the season.

Mason Rudolph – He is perpetually on this list as he is still the third QB on the roster. I think he will remain on this list for the rest of the year barring injury.

LT Walton – The Steelers will get Stephon Tuitt back this week and they have missed him. That means Walton will revert back to the inactive list.

Zach Banner – He will be a healthy scratch as he is the ninth lineman on the roster.

Justin Hunter – He could be a healthy scratch although I could see a scenario where he dresses over James Washington who has struggled as of late.

Cameron Sutton – Sutton is listed as questionable with what sounds like a personal issue. Its hard to gauge where this is at, but he might be the seventh inactive because of it. I could also see Brian Allen being inactive if Sutton is able to go.

The Steelers will try to get back on their winning ways as they come back home in Week 13. They’ll be without two veteran starters, but have seen the impact from the players behind them. At this point in the season, Pittsburgh has seen what their team can do without starters on the field. This week will be no different as they take on the Chargers.
