CLEVELAND — The Steelers will rest as many healthy regulars as possible on Sunday against the Cleveland Browns, but with limited options available, only four healthy starters are inactive for the team’s regular season finale.
Defensive lineman Cam Heyward, center Maurkice Pouncey, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and outside linebacker T.J. Watt are all healthy inactives for the Steelers and remained at home in Pittsburgh instead of traveling to Cleveland with the team.
They’re joined on the inactive list by two players sidelined by injury: kicker Chris Boswell (groin) and strong safety Terrell Edmunds (shoulder).
The Steelers also have three players on the COVID-19 reserve list: tight end Eric Ebron, cornerback Joe Haden and outside linebacker Cassius Marsh.
Four players were elevated from the practice squad: wide receiver Deon Cain, guard/tackle Anthony Coyle, tight end Kevin Rader and kicker Matthew Wright.
Expected substitute starters are below:
QB Mason Rudolph
C J.C. Hassenauer
TE Vance McDonald
K Matthew Wright
CB Cam Sutton
DT Chris Wormley
OLB Ola Adeniyi
SS Sean Davis
