Injured G David DeCastro among Steelers Inactives vs. Giants



The Steelers have inactivated injured guard David DeCastro for Monday night’s game against the New York Giants, along with five other players.

DeCastro is joined on the inactive list by veteran third quarterback Josh Dobbs, rookie defensive tackle Carlos Davis, second-year tight end Zach Gentry, second-year inside linebacker Ulysees Gilbert III and rookie running back Anthony McFarland, Jr.

DeCastro did not practice all week with a knee injury suffered during a training camp scrimmage and had been ruled out after not practicing on Friday.

The only other injured player the Steelers had this week was wide receiver Diontae Johnson, who missed Thursday’s practice with a foot injury. He is dressed.
