Neither inactive is a surprise. Allen (ankle) had been previously ruled out, and Brown (illness) was doubtful.
The Steelers’ other inactives are tight end Heath Miller (knee), running back Le’Veon Bell (foot), placekicker Shayne Graham, quarterback Landry Jones, offensive lineman Cody Wallace. Miller and Bell had already been ruled out for Week Two.
With Graham inactive, Shaun Suisham will handle the kicking for the Steelers. Graham was signed in the event Suisham (left hamstring) was unable to play, but Suisham went through full practices on Friday and Saturday and was listed as probable for Monday’s game.
