Ryan Clark Among The Inactives For Steelers Vs. Broncos

The AFC Wild Card game has story lines featuring the quarterbacks of both the Pittsburgh Steelers and Denver Broncos. Ben Roethlisberger is not 100 percent but he is active and will start for the Steelers. Tim Tebow is also expected to start although there are reports that he could be benched for Brady Quinn in some situations if he struggles.

The inactives for both teams have been released. The game kicks off at 4:30 p.m. (ET) on CBS.

Steelers inactives: RB Mewelde Moore, S Ryan Clark, DB Cortez Allen, C Mike Pouncey, LB Mortty Ivy, DE Al Woods OT Jon Meredith.

Broncos inactives: S Brian Dawkins, RB Austin Sylvester, FB Spencer Larsen, LB Mike Mohamed, OT Ryan Harris, TE Julius Thomas and DE Derrick Harvey.

Of note on those inactives is Steelers safety Ryan Clark. He has a medical condition which resulted in complications the last time he played in the altitude of Denver so he was ruled out for this game earlier in the week. Pouncey, the Steelers center, will miss his second consecutive postseason game for the Steelers after missing last year's Super Bowl.

The Steelers are the heavy favorite but the Broncos are hoping to recover whatever they lost since their 7-1 run with Tebow at the helm.
