Here are the inactives for today’s game between the Seattle Seahawks and Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field:
Inactive: WR Gary Jennings, CB Neiko Thorpe, FS Tedric Thompson, C Joey Hunt, WR David Moore, DE Ziggy Ansah, DT Poona Ford.
Notes: Seattle has little good news on the injury front. Starters Ford (calf) and Thompson (hamstring) both sit after being listed as doubtful. Ford’s absence likely means more work inside for Pittsburgh native Quinton Jefferson, while Thompson’s probably means a start for Lano Hill at strong safety, with Bradley McDougald switching to free safety. Seattle waits another week to unveil Ansah (shoulder), though DE L.J. Collier, the team’s first-round draft pick, is set to make his NFL debut after sitting out last week with an ankle injury. Special teams captain Thorpe (hamstring) misses out after being listed as doubtful. Reserves Hunt (ankle) and Moore (shoulder) remain out. LG Mike Iupati (foot), who was active last week but replaced in the starting lineup by Ethan Pocic, is expected to play.
Inactive: FB Roosevelt Nix, T Chukwuma Okorafor, G Fred Johnson, DE Isaiah Buggs, TE Zach Gentry, CB Justin Layne, LB Jayrone Elliott.
Notes: Pittsbugh had three players listed on its injury report this week, all of them at the top of the depth chart. Nix (knee) had already been ruled out, but CB Joe Haden (shoulder) and C Maurice Pouncey (ankle) both are active after being listed as questionable. Free safety Sean Davis returns to action after sitting out last week because of an ankle injury.
