PITTSBURGH–The Dolphins are looking to pull the upset today and move on to a divisional-round playoff game next weekend at New England.

In that effort, Miami will be several key players. Here is the inactive list for this afternoon:

QB Ryan Tannehill (knee)
TE Thomas Duarte
LT Sam Young
WR Leonte Carroo
DB A.J. Hendy
CB Byron Maxwell (ankle)

Linebacker Jelani Jenkins returns from a knee injury today, and safety Bacarri Rambo is healthy enough to play despite missing time with a chest injury during the week.

Other notes:

–Miami only has six inactives because its active roster is one short of the limit. The Dolphins cut defensive end Jason Jones on Friday and did not fill his spot, dropping them to 52 players.

–Defensive end Mario Williams is active despite sitting last week.

–Sam Young is a surprise absence because he’s the backup to Branden Albert and often plays as a tight end in goal-line situations.
