The Cincinnati Bengals and Pittsburgh Steelers have begun warming up for tonight’s AFC North matchup, and each team has released their inactive players list.

Here are the six players that will not play for the Bengals tonight:

  • QB Brandon Allen
  • K Randy Bullock
  • OL B.J. Finney
  • OL Alex Redmond
  • OL Keaton Sutherland
  • LB Logan Wilson

Allen (knee) and Wilson (ankle) were each declared out on Saturday with their respective injuries. Ryan Finley will start for Allen and Kevin Hogan was elevated off of the practice squad to back Finley up.

Bullock was a healthy scratch last week and will sit out this game as well while Austin Siebert tries to prove he is the kicker of the future. Siebert was 1/1 on extra points last week but didn’t attempt a field goal. Siebert gets another chance tonight.

Michael Jordan was a surprise inactive last week but he will dress tonight while Finney, Sutherland, and Redmond will not. Jordan isn’t likely to start at left guard, though.

Here are the inactives for the Steelers:

  • QB Josh Dobbs
  • S Antoine Brooks Jr.
  • RB James Conner
  • DE Cassius Marsh
  • OG Kevin Dotson
  • DE Isaiah Buggs

Conner (quadriceps) and Dotson (shoulder) were questionable and doubtful, respectively, but Conner was declared out on Monday afternoon. Expect former Kentucky star Benny Snell to carry the load at running back for Pittsburgh.
