Steelers LB Robert Spillane among inactives versus the Bills
The Pittsburgh Steelers announced their inactives for this week’s game against the Buffalo Bills. The big surprise on the list is former starting inside linebacker Robert Spillane. Here’s the full list.
LB Robert Spillane
QB Dwayne Haskins
DE Isaiahh Loudermilk
OL Rashaad Coward
CB Ahkello Witherspoon
Witherspoon was acquired in a trade late in the offseason but the hope is he works his way into the lineup soon. Coward had been the primary backup at guard but the team probably like B.J. Finney’s position versatility more. As for Spillane, he was largely miscast as a starter last season and played primarily out of need. The addition of Joe Schobert this offseason let Spillane know his hard-nosed style but lack of athleticism wasn’t what the Steelers need on the inside.
