Bucs-Steelers Inactives: Johnson Cleared

DE Michael Johnson, the lone “questionable” player on Tampa Bay’s Friday injury report, will suit up and start Sunday in Pittsburgh...The Steelers declared starting LG Ramon Foster inactive

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Pittsburgh Steelers named their seven game day inactives on Sunday at 11:30 a.m., 90 minutes before kickoff of their Week Four matchup at Heinz Field. NFL teams are required to reduce their active rosters to 46 players for each regular-season game.

The Bucs will be without starting QB Josh McCown and starting MLB Mason Foster but they are getting back DT Gerald McCoy, RB Doug Martin and TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins. In addition, DE Michael Johnson, who played just six snaps last week in Atlanta, is also active and will start. The Steelers had already declared LB Ryan Shazier and CB Ike Taylor out earlier in the week due to injuries suffered last Sunday night, but they also will be without starting left guard Ramon Foster.
