Having a healthy team means the Steelers inactive list is not injury-based in today's season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals.
the inactive relied more on depth than team health.
"I'm feeling good," Johnson said after the team finished practicing for the week,
My shoulder is getting better, a lot better. Feels a lot better. I'm ready to go Sunday."
Today's Steelers inactives include quarterback Mason Rudolph, who is third behind starter Mitch Trubisky and rookie Kenny Pickett after
battling at the position in training camp and the preseason. It was a battle that coach Mike Tomlin didn't publicly declare a winner until
earlier this week, and one Trubisky is proud of winning and ready to take control today at Pecour Stadium.
It's going to be huge," Trubisky said. "It's something I've been looking forward to, something I've worked for.
I'm grateful for the opportunity and I'm going to take full advantage
In addition to Rudolph, the other inactives are center Kendrick Green, receiver Steven Sims, defensive end Isaiah Loudersmilk and linebacker Mark Robinson.
