Lewis inactive again for Steelers

Steelers/NFL Videos

The Steelers will not make any significant changes as they try to avoid losing a sixth-straight game for the first time since 1999.

The starting lineup has remained intact for today's game against the visiting Green Bay Packers, and there are no surprises among the list Steelers inactives.

The list includes the injured (or ill) — strong safety Troy Polamalu (knee), guard Chris Kemoeatu (wrist) and wide receiver Limas Sweed (sick) — as well as the usual.

Among that group are guard Kraig Urbik, defensive end Sunny Harris and yes, rookie cornerback Keenan Lewis. Since coach Mike Tomlin said he wanted to see more of Lewis we haven't seen any of the third-round draft pick.

While Lewis is inactive, it will be interesting to see how much playing time rookie cornerback Joe Burnett gets today. Burnett played for both Ike Taylor and William Gay in the Steelers' 13-6 loss in Cleveland on Dec. 10 though he saw only spot duty.

Rounding out the list of inactives for the Steelers are defensive end Nick Eason and quarterback Charlie Batch.
