There is undoubtedly some history being made in today's Wednesday afternoon AFC North contest between the Ravens and the Steelers.
After numerous postponements, both teams will finally square off in the final matchup of a long Week 12.
With the large quantity of players on the COVID-19/Reserve list for the Ravens, 10 practice squad elevations were made today to field a full game day roster.
Consequently, the Ravens only have two players with an official “inactive” designation.
Let’s take a look at who those players are for Baltimore:
Rodgers was a waiver claim who still hasn't practiced with team. Williams is still dealing with ankle injury. https://t.co/sQb02ZvJjp— Jeff Zrebiec (@jeffzrebiec) December 2, 2020
Brandon Williams is still dealing with an ankle sprain he sustained against the New England Patriots, so him not playing doesn't come as a surprise.
Despite the activations of Mark Ingram and J.K. Dobbins from the COVID-19/Reserve list, both running backs will be held out of today's game.
The Steelers will also be without a few of starters due to the virus. Both Maurkice Pouncey, James Conner, and Stephon Tuitt will be out of today's matchup.
In Conner’s place, expect Benny Snell Jr. and Anthony McFarland Jr. to see plenty of activity out of the backfield.
Pittsburgh’s official inactive list:
- QB Josh Dobbs
- S Antoine Brooks Jr.
- RB Jaylen Samuels
- LB Jayrone Elliott
- TE Kevin Rade
