NFL Week 9 actives/inactives: Steve Smith, Ben Roethlisberger will play

The Steelers and Ravens will both be getting key offensive players back in the lineup for Sunday’s AFC North showdown. 

Ben Roethlisberger hasn’t played since tearing his meniscus in Week 6 against the Dolphins but will be on the field for the Steelers. Steve Smith injured his ankle in Week 5 and missed two games but he, too, will return on Sunday. 

Randall Cobb is unlikely to go for the Packers later Sunday against the Colts, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports. Cobb also missed last week’s loss to the Falcons and the Packers have dealt with a litany of injuries to their top offensive players.
