After a Week 3 loss to the Chiefs when the defense allowed multiple chunk plays along with 530 total yards given up last week against the Browns, Coach Harbaugh is shaking things up by benching a number of notable players. Here are the Ravens inactives:
The most notable inactives are Kenny Young and Anthony Averett. Both players have been receiving extensive playing time but have failed to put together strong performances. Young’s inability to make an impact in run support and Averett’s penalty-prone tendencies have resulted in Coach Harbaugh benching both players in favor of others such as Maurice Canady, Cyrus Jones, and the newly signed Josh Bynes and L.J. Fort.
After being active last week, rookie Daylon Mack will not be seeing the field today. The promotion of Zach Sieler from the practice squad to the active roster prompts the benching of Mack.
The Steelers’ inactives feature a couple of notable players. Despite an injury riddled week for various impact players such as JuJu Smith-Schuster and Vance McDonald, many of the players Ravens fans are used to seeing will be active for today. Here are the Steelers inactives:
FB Roosevelt Nix, an important part of the Steelers’ running game, will not be suiting up today. Additionally, Donte Moncrief, a dangerous deep threat, will also be watching from the sidelines. Otherwise, the Steelers, though banged up, will be at full strength for today’s game.
