When you look at the Cleveland Browns’ list of Week 17 inactives, you might be scratching your head to recognize more than two names. The good news is that CB Briean Boddy-Calhoun is active and will play for the first time in several weeks.

The Pittsburgh Steelers’ list is full of several big names, including more starters than we expected. Pittsburgh has inactivated the following players this week:

  • QB Ben Roethlisberger
  • RB Le’Veon Bell
  • WR Antonio Brown
  • C Maurkice Pouncey
  • OG David DeCastro
  • DE Cameron Heyward
  • CB Cody Sensabaugh

The Browns’ inactives include QB Cody Kessler, FB Danny Vitale, WR Matt Hazel, TE Matt Langel, C Marcus Martin, OL Geoff Gray, and LB Jeremy Cash.
