Chicago Bears @ Pittsburgh Steelers inactives


The Pittsburgh Steelers host the Chicago Bears tonight in a game that has implications on the Cincinnati Bengals. Because the Bengals lost the Bears in Week 1, in the event that the Steelers were to have the same record at season’s end as the Bengals, one of the tie-breaking procedures that would be used is the teams’ records vs. common opponents, and if both teams split their in-season matchups (Bengals won first one), tonight’s game could have a hand in deciding who finishes higher in the standings.


Steelers inactives – QB Landry Jones, WR Derek Moye, RB Le’Veon Bell, CB Cortez Allen, Isaiah Green, Cody Wallace, Hebron Fangupo.


Bears inactives: WR Marquess WIlson, CB CJ WIlson, RB Michael Ford, OLs James Brown & Jonathan Scott, DE David Bass, DT Zach Minter


The most notable names are the ones not on the list, as the Bears will have injured cornerbacks Tim Jennings and Charles Tillman active, while the Steelers will have tight end Heath Miller for the first time since he tore his ACL in Week 16 of last year against the Bengals.
