Steelers inactives vs Ravens: Malik Reed out, Pittsburgh looking healthy
The Pittsburgh Steelers are set for kickoff against the Baltimore Ravens. Here are their inactives for this Week 14 AFC North matchup.
After a brief return to nearly full strength, the Pittsburgh Steelers had some high-profile names pop up on their injury report in Week 14. As they took the practice field in preparation to face the Baltimore Ravens, fans didn’t know how many starters (if any) would be absent for this pivotal AFC North Matchup.
Prior to Friday’s practice, we didn’t know the availability of players like T.J. Watt, Diontae Johnson and Larry Ogunjobi. Though they each had a ‘questionable designation heading into the weekend, the Steelers official Twitter account confirmed that all three have been upgraded from their original status and are expected to play.
This is excellent news for a team who desperately needs a victory against a division rival to keep their playoff hopes alive in 2022. At nearly full strength and with everything on the line, Pittsburgh won’t be holding anything back against the Ravens today.
Steelers inactives vs Ravens Week 14
With a clean bill of health, some of the usuals will be healthy scratches for Pittsburgh this week. Here are the Steelers inactive vs Ravens in Week 14:
- EDGE Malik Reed
- LB Mark Robinson
- QB Mason Rudolph
- OG Kendrick Green
- CB Josh Jackson
With a healthy roster, Pittsburgh’s inactive against Baltimore this week look like they often do. Edge defender Malik Reed has been struggling with an injury all week in practice. He will be holding a clipboard this week. In his place, DL Isaiahh Loudermilk will earn a helmet today.
Similarly, rookie LB Mark Robinson is yet again inactive for this Week 14 AFC North matchup. The same goes for former 3rd-round pick, Kendrick Green. After being a full-time starter as a rookie in 2021, Green has since struggled to earn a helmet on gameday and doesn’t see the field on Sundays. Quarterback Mason Rudolph and cornerback Josh Jackson will also be watching from the sidelines today.
It’s also worth noting that the Steelers recently activated former Pro Bowl kicker, Chris Boswell, from IR. He will play against the Ravens today. Matthew Wright was released to make room for Boswell.
