The Bengals and Steelers have announced their inactives for their Week 6 matchup.

On Cincinnati’s side, most of these names were already a given since guys like Tyler Kroft s and Giovani Bernard had already been ruled out on Friday.

Cincinnati Bengals Inactives

  • RB Giovani Bernard
  • WR John Ross
  • WR Auden Tate
  • OL Billy Price
  • OL Cedric Ogbuehi
  • TE Tyler Kroft
  • DT Adolphus Washington

The big news is William Jackson who was a game-time call due to knee injury. He was limited throughout the week with a big matchup looming with All-Pro receiver Antonio Brown.

Jackson is active, so that’s big news and is a major boost to the Bengals’ secondary.

As for John Ross, he is inactive after being limited in practice this week with a groin injury. He probably was healthy enough to play today, but the Bengals are smart to make sure he’s as close o 100-percent health as possible when he returns.

On the other side, here’s a look at who is out today for the Steelers:
