PITTSBURGH -- The Titans just learned just how the Steelers’ rejiggered lineup will look this afternoon.
Injuries on defense mean Ziggy Hood will start at end for Aaron Smith, Chris Hoke will start at nose tackle for Casey Hampton, Lawrence Timmons will move from inside linebacker to outside linebacker on the right side and Larry Foote will step into Timmons' usual slot.
The Steelers kept their third quarterback, Dennis Dixon, active with Ben Roethlisberger dealing with a foot sprain. Running back Rashard Mendenhall has a hamstring injury but remains in the starting lineup. He’s expected to be limited with Isaac Redman taking most of the load.
The entire lists of inactives:
QB Rusty Smith
DT Zach Clayton
