The Steelers will be without running back James Conner Jersey and guard Kevin Dotson tonight against the Cincinnati Bengals, both of them inactive after they were ruled out due to injuries.
Conner suffered a quadriceps injury against the Buffalo Bills and was limited in practice during the week. He was downgraded to out on Monday afternoon. This will be the third game this season Conner has missed, sitting out Weeks 11 and 12 on the Reserve/COVID-19 List. Conner has 663 yards on 155 carries this season and five touchdowns.
Dotson was ruled out on Saturday with a shoulder injury and is inactive tonight. Dotson suffered the shoulder injury last week against the Buffalo Bills, a game that also had the Steelers lose guard Matt Feiler Jersey, who was placed on the Reserve/Injured List last Tuesday.
Without Dotson and Feiler, the team activated guard Danny Isidora, who was signed on Dec. 15, to the 53-man roster earlier in the day. Isidora has played in 25 games during his four-year career, including 14 in 2018, with six starts. He has played in one game so far in 2020.
He was a fifth-round pick of the Minnesota Vikings in the 2017 NFL Draft. Isidora was traded to the Miami Dolphins in 2019, where he played in four games. He was released by the Dolphins prior to the start of the 2020 regular season and signed to the Chiefs practice squad a few days later.
The full list of inactives is below.
No. 4 K Randy Bullock
No. 8 QB Brandon Allen
No. 55 LB Logan Wilson
No. 61 OL B.J. Finney
No. 62 OG Alex Redmond
No. 65 OL Keaton Sutherland
Statement from Steelers President Art Rooney II:
We lost an amazing player and person this morning with the passing of Kevin Greene Jersey. His sudden death is a shock to us all as he was a close friend and teammate to so many people in the Steelers family.
When Kevin came to the Steelers in 1993 he had an immediate impact. Paired with Greg Lloyd Jersey, Kevin and Greg led a defense that became known as Blitzburgh and went on to play in Super Bowl XXX. Kevin’s energy and enthusiasm were inspiring for our team as well as our fans.
My condolences go out to Kevin’s wife, Tara, their children and the entire Greene family in this most difficult time. They will always be members of the Steelers family and in our thoughts and prayers.
