    Now that we are down to 53, who do think gets scratched on Sunday?

    Heath Miller and Le'Veon Bell aren't playing, so there's two (with Speath on IR/DTR, he doesn't count anymore).

    Will Johnson has also been hobbled this week. There is a chance he doesn't play (and David Johnson takes over the hybrid FB/TE role with Paulson and Palmer the more traditional TE's).

    Landry Jones won't be playing. We're good with Ben and Bruce.

    We usually dress 7 OL, so I'd imagine that Cody Wallace will backup Pouncey and Beachum will backup everyone else, meaning that Guy Whimper would be in street clothes.

    We are probably okay with Brown, Sanders, Cotchery, and Wheaton at WR, so Moye may take a seat.

    We should be okay with Golden and Shark behind Troy and Clark, so Cromartie-Smith may not play.

    And finally, among our backup ILB population, we will probably play 2 for ST's and sit one...if I had to guess, it would be that Kion Wilson and Terence Garvin suit up and Vince Williams does not.

    I think you got it about right. Maybe Fangupo doesn't get a hat so we can dress Smith or Williams for ST?

    Or maybe Tomlin dresses 8 on the OLine given how many injuries we've had recently?

    As much as I hate to say it, I think Guy Whimper will get a hat. In my non-professional estimation, Wallace just hasn't had time to integrate himself into the OL schemes.

    Crush your enemies, see them driven before you, hear the lamentations of their women.

    I was thinking the same thing about Fangupo. With Woods and Ziggy being able to play NT there is the flexibility that Fangupo doesn't have to dress.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    I was (unfortunately) leaning in that direction as well.
