The Steelers are desperate for a win tonight against the Los Angeles Chargers, especially in light of another Ravens win, bringing them to 4-2 on the season. Pittsburgh would be happy to be 2-4, tied with the Browns.
The story of the game, of course, is Devlin Hodges making his first career start. The 6’1″ undrafted rookie out of an FCS school, Hodges has not once appeared to be in over his head physically or mentally through the process since last week’s game.
There are no surprises for the inactive list, which is made up almost entirely of injured players. They are Mason Rudolph, Jaylen Samuels, James Washington, Roosevelt Nix, Mark Barron, and Steven Nelson. Joining them is healthy scratch rookie defensive lineman Isaiah Buggs.
