The Pittsburgh Steelers will be minus starting cornerback Levi Wallace this week when they take on the Jacksonville Jaguars. Pittsburgh released its inactives for this week’s game and Wallace was the one surprise on the list.
The Steelers also listed nose tackle Breiden Fehoko, offensive tackle Dylan Cook and quarterback Mason Rudolph among the inactives this week. Of course, Rudolph is still dressed and listed as the team’s emergency quarterback.
With Wallace out, rookie Joey Porter Jr. should get his first NFL start. Porter himself has been dealing with an injury along with fellow cornerback James Pierre so this entire unit is dinged up. It also means newly-acquired cornerback Darius Rush is active along with Luq Barcoo and both could see action against the Jaguars.
