The Bengals and Steelers have announced their inactives.

For Cincinnati, the following players are out today:

  • LB Vontaze Burfict
  • CB Tony McRae
  • OL Cedric Ogbuehi
  • TE Jordan Franks
  • DE Kasim Edebali
  • RB Quinton Flowers
  • WR Hunter Sharp

No real surprises here, as Vontaze Burfict (concussion) and Tony McRae (hamstring) had already been ruled out. With Jordan Evans being placed on injured reserve this week, that means Cincinnati’s already-thin linebacker group is even thinner, which is why undrafted free agent Chris Worley is active after being signed to the active roster two weeks ago.

For Pittsburgh, here is who is out today:

  • WR Antonio Brown
  • LB Vince Williams
  • QB Mason Rudolph
  • DT LT Walton
  • OT Zach Banner
  • DB Sean Davis
  • LB Olasunkanmi Adeniyi

The big question marks were Antonio Brown (knee) and James Conner (ankle). Conner is active after missing the past three games. Brown is inactive, which is great news for the Bengals’ secondary.
