NFL Actives/Inactives: Roethlisberger, Dez Bryant in for Week 8
Welcome to Week 8 of the NFL season! There are 12 games scheduled for Sunday, and news is trickling out about whether or not players listed as questionable on injury reports earlier this week will be starting. Stay up do date on who’s playing, and who’s sitting out in Week 8.
• Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant is officially ACTIVE against the Seahawks, but will wear a custom orthotic and have his snap count limited, according to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport. Bryant broke his foot in the team’s Week 1 victory over the Giants and has been out ever since.
• New York Jets wide receiver Eric Decker is ACTIVE against the Raiders. He was officially listed as questionable with a knee injury. Decker is second on the team in receiving with 24 catches for 333 yards. Center Nick Mangold (neck), running back Bilal Powell (ankle) and safety Calvin Pryor (ankle) are also INACTIVE.
• Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (knee, probable) is ACTIVE against the Bengals. He’s been out since spraining his left MCL in Week 3.
• Arizona Cardinals wideout John Brown (hamstring, questionable) is ACTIVE against the Browns. He tested out the hamstring before the game at the team’s request and is good to go.
