The Pittsburgh Steelers got some good and some bad injury news as they released their inactive list for Week 18 against the Baltimore Ravens.

The Steelers announced defensive tackle DeMarvin Leal, offensive tackle Dylan Cook, cornerback Darius Rush, inside linebacker Blake Martinez, and safety Minkah Fitzpatrick (knee) and Trenton Thompson (neck) will not play in Week 18.

Fitzpatrick and Thompson will miss their third game due to their injuries. After both leaving in Week 15 against the Indianapolis Colts, they were ruled out in Week 16 and Week 17. This week, they practiced enough to head into the weekend with a questionable tag, but in the season finale, Pittsburgh will keep both sidelined.

In their place, the Steelers will start Patrick Peterson and Eric Rowe at safety, with Miles Killebrew and Elijah Riley contributing as depth pieces.

The Steelers did get some positive injury news with the return of Elandon Roberts. Roberts missed last week with a pectoral injury but returned to practice this week. He was listed as questionable but told reporters that he intended to play.

He’ll likely start next to Myles Jack at inside linebacker.
