NFL Week 6 inactives: Steve Smith Sr., Joe Haden out
Here’s a full list of NFL players inactive in Week 6, led by Ravens receiver Steve Smith Sr. and Browns cornerback Joe Haden.
Week 6 of the NFL season should be a great one. It features a variety of games which should be close. This week’s inactive players could turn the tides on their respective games. The biggest names include Ravens receiver Steve Smith Sr., Cleveland Browns corner Joe Haden, New England Patriots linebacker Jamie Collins, and St. Louis Rams defensive lineman Robert Quinn.
The Ravens will be without Smith. They will also be without starting offensive lineman Marshall Yanda and Ronnie Stanley, as well as linebackers C.J. Mosley and Elvis Dumervil. This could shift the tide towards the New York Giants, as this game was already a toss up to begin with. Meanwhile, the Giants will be without cornerback Eli Apple and linebacker Deontae Skinner. If you can, start Mike Wallace in fantasy because he should get a lot of targets without Smith.
Josh Doctson and Su’a Cravens will both be inactive for the Washington Redskins as they face the Philadelphia Eagles. Haden will be among the Browns’ inactive players as they square off against the Tennessee Titans. For the Carolina Panthers, offensive tackle Michael Oher remains out with a concussion against the New Orleans Saints. Dannell Ellerbe will be inactive for the Saints.
As expected, the Chicago Bears will have Jay Cutler inactive against the Jacksonville Jaguars. For the St. Louis Rams, Quinn will be among those inactive against the Detroit Lions. The Lions, however, will be without Eric Ebron, Theo Riddick, and Haloti Ngata. For the Pittsburgh Steelers, tackle Marcus Gilbert will be inactive against the Miami Dolphins. Meanwhile, for the Dolphins, Walt Aikens and Jordan Cameron lead their group of inactives.
