Actively Predicting the Inactive List: Week 7 @ Tennessee

By: G.Stryker, Twitter @SNStryker and Instagram @SNStryker


Diontae Johnson and David DeCastro practiced fully all week. They will both be playing on Sunday in Tennessee after missing the last game with injuries.

Derek Watt and Mike Hilton didn’t practice at all and will not be playing this next game.

Devin Bush had surgery on October 20th and was placed on the season-ending Injured Reserve List. July 20, 2021 will be 9 months separated from the surgery and is the usual recovery time for an ACL. If all goes well, Bush should be ready for training camp next season.

This is a link to our current spreadsheet. It will update on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday after the practice reports are issued, as well as Post-Game and Tuesday after Coach Tomlin’s press conferences. Bookmark it to see how the health of the Steelers are shaping up each week. Or click here.


This week I believe the inactive players will be:

  1. Josh Dobbs: Healthy scratch/ 3rd QB
  2. Derek Watt: Ruled out so he won’t play.
  3. Mike Hilton: Ruled out so he won’t play.
  4. Zach Gentry: Both tight ends are healthy, so Zach shouldn’t be playing.
  5. Carlos Davis: Has not been active yet this year. All defensive linemen are healthy, so Carlos is the odd man out.


Who do you think will be inactive for the Steelers this week? Let us know in the comments section below!
