The Steelers will have both Minkah Fitzpatrick and Myles Jack for Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns after being listed as questionable to play due to various ailments.

Minkah Fitzpatrick dealt with an ankle injury that nagged him all week after suffering it against the Baltimore Ravens. He was listed as questionable but will play. Meanwhile, Jack has suffered from a groin injury that he aggravated last week against the Ravens. It forced him to miss half of the game after aggravating the injury.

Leading the list of inactives is Tre Norwood, who is out with a hamstring injury. Norwood did not practice on Friday and that is what ruled him out for the game. Meanwhile, the regular inactives list continued for Pittsburgh. They did not have Jonathan Marshall or Tae Crowder, both new additions to the team late in the season, active for a regular season game.

Mason Rudolph and Kendrick Green were the two obvious inactives that are there every week. However, Malik Reed is inactive for the second week in a row. That does not bode well for him coming back in 2023, and Jamir Jones will assume the snaps that Reed will leave behind by being inactive.

Renell Wren was elevated from the practice squad and will play against the Browns. That is the second straight week that he has been elevated from the practice squad.
