Sunday's inactive list was filled with prominent names, as the Ravens will rest many of their starters to face the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Head Coach John Harbaugh previously announced quarterback Lamar Jackson, running back Mark Ingram II, defensive tackle Brandon Williams, safety Earl Thomas III and right guard Marshal Yanda would not play. On Sunday, tight end Mark Andrews and left tackle Ronnie Stanley were added to the inactives.

The Ravens (13-2) have won 11 straight games and have already clinched the No. 1 seed for the AFC playoffs, giving them the option to rest key players. Ingram is nursing a calf injury and focusing on being ready for Baltimore's playoff opener. Andrews left was listed on Friday's injury report with an ankle injury.

With Jackson not playing, rookie quarterback Trace McSorley is active for the first time this season, serving as the backup to Robert Griffin III, who was slated to make his first start since 2016 when he played with the Cleveland Browns. Second-year wide receiver Jaleel Scott is also active for the third time this year.

Veteran cornerback Brandon Carr is active and expected to make his 192nd consecutive start, the longest active streak among NFL defensive players.

For the Steelers, two starters were ruled out Friday – running back James Conner (knee) and center Maurkice Pouncey (quad). Joining them as inactive are cornerback Artie Burns, linebacker Tuzar Skipper, offensive lineman Chukwuma Okorafor, tight end Zach Gentry and wide receiver Amara Darboh.
