The Pittsburgh Steelers announced the inactives for this week’s game with the Kansas City Chiefs. The two big names of note are punter Pressley Harvin III and tight end Pat Freiermuth.

Harvin’s dad passed away on Christmas and so he’s currently with family. Pittsburgh added Corliss Whitman on Saturday to replace him and he will handle the punting duties. Whitman was in camp with the Steelers.

With Freiermuth out, it will be a combination of Zach Gentry and Kevin Rader at tight end. Look for them to serve more as blockers and the Steelers will utilize multiple wide receiver sets more to account for the loss of Freiermuth’s athleticism.
