Steelers-Eagles Week 5 Inactives: Derek Watt Out, Diontae Johnson Back



PITTSBURGH —- Both the Steelers and Eagles have several key players on the inactive list for their week 5 matchup. Derek Watt, who signed with the Steelers in the offseason to join his brother T.J., stands out for Pittsburgh. While Pittsburgh will be without some notable names, the injury bug has hurt Philadelphia even more.

As many expected, this does mean wide receiver Diontae Johnson will be in action for Pittsburgh. Johnson has been out after suffering a concussion a couple weeks ago. Running back Trey Edmunds was also elevated from the practice squad for this game.

Star wide receivers DeSean Jackson and Alshon Jeffrey continue to be out of action for Philadelphia, which has obviously greatly impacted quarterback Carson Wentz and the Eagles offense.

The full list of inactive are listed below.
