A Pittsburgh Steelers player winning player of the week honors
continues to be a biweekly award for the team in 2018 after Ben Roethlisberger was named AFC Offensive Player of the Week on Wednesday for his efforts against the Carolina Panthers in Week 10.Roethlisberger won the award for the second time this season and 17th time in his career after recording a perfect game against Carolina. Big Ben finished the contest with the maximum quarterback rating of 158.3 for completing 22 of 25 passes for 328 yards and 5 touchdowns. He also became the only player in NFL history to have finished a game with a perfect quarterback rating four times.With 2 Cheap JuJu Smith-Schuster Jersey ,888 passing yards on the season, Roethlisberger currently ranks fourth in the league, as Patrick Mahomes leads the NFL with 3,150 yards. His 21 touchdowns also find him in a tie for fourth place Youth Bud Dupree Jersey , while Mahomes is again the leader with 31. An average of 320.9 yards per game is enough to rank him second behind Matt Ryan (335.0).The Steelers’ quarterback is one of three Pittsburgh players to win a weekly award in 2018 and this is the fifth time a member of the team has been honored this season. T.J. Watt won defensive player of the week honors in Week 1 and Week 5, while Roethlisberger won the offensive award in Week 3 and James Conner won it in Week 8. No NFL team has won more individual weekly honors that the Steelers so far this year.Predicting the Steelers Week 2 inactive list vs. the Chiefs As the season gets rolling, the injury report will be a driving factor behind what players will make up the seven-man inactive list. Here is the official game status for Sunday:Game StatusDoubtful:CB Joe Haden (Hamstring)G David DeCastro (Hand)DE Tyson Alualu (Shoulder)Questionable:QB Ben Roethlisberger (Elbow) CB Artie Burns (Toe)TE Vance McDonald (Foot)DE Cam Heyward (Knee)Here are the candidates to end up inactive for Week 2Big Grinefinitely:This section is reserved for players that have been ruled out. As of Friday, no players carry that designation. Most Likely:QB Mason Rudolph- the only way that Rudolph gets helmet is if Ben is unable to play.OT Zach Banner- last week showed us that the Steelers only plan on dressing seven offensive linemen unless there is a special circumstance. Until injuries mount up Womens T. J. Watt Jersey , Banner will continue to develop in practice only.CB Joe Hayden- after leaving the game early last week and failing to practice at all for this week, I’m surprised Hayden wasn’t already ruled out. It would be super-shocking if he is active on game day so Coty Sensabaugh should move back into the rotation.DE Tyson Alualu- with a doubtful designation and being limited in practice on Friday, it looks as if Alualu will be held out of the game and LT Walton will get the helmet instead.S Marcus Allen- he was the odd man out at safety last week and all the remaining players ahead of him are still healthy.Possibly:G David DeCastro or Matt Feiler- out of all the players that are listed as doubtful, DeCastro has the best chance of playing. It all comes down to if the swelling in his hand decreases enough for them to put on a cast. If he can’t go Womens Sean Davis Jersey , Feiler will take the backup role as Finney would move into the starting lineup.WR Justin Hunter, WR James Washington, or TE Xavier Grimble- with the return of Vance McDonald, there is an extra receiver position that the team will most likely not be able to carry. Do they roll with only two TE’s like last week or do they not need six WR’s?Unlikely:QB Ben Roethlisberger- he was a full participant practice on Friday. Unless he has a setback Youth Joe Haden Jersey , I don’t think that he will miss this game.DE Cam Heyward- he was a full participant both Thursday and Friday. It would be a surprise to see him inactive on Sunday.TE Vance McDonald- I’m not sure why he’s even on the status list. He was a full participant all week and appears to have had no setbacks.CB Artie Burns- he was a late addition to the injury report after being limited on Friday with a toe. But with Joe Haden most likely not being able to go, it would take a lot to keep him out of the game.Projected Inactive List:Mason Rudolph Zach Banner Joe HaydenTyson Alualu David DeCastro Marcus AllenJustin HunterI have all players that are doubtful as not playing while all questionable players dress for the game. When it came to who to sit in place of Vance McDonald, I really hope it’s Justin Hunter. James Washington should have his role increasing by the week and Hunter just doesn’t bring much versatility or combativeness.Feel free to list your projected inactives in the comments below.
