Steelers – Raiders: Foster to start at RG; Keisel, Asomugha inactive

Oakland Raiders (5-4) @ Pittsburgh Steelers (6-3)
Pre-game Notes: *As expected, defensive end Brett Keisel will not play today against the Oakland Raiders. Keisel will be inactive.
The other inactives for Pittsburgh are running back Jonathan Dwyer, OG Chris Scott, Tackle Tony Hills, DE Aaron Smith, cornerback Crezdon Butler and safety Will Allen who will miss his second straight game due to a concussion.
*Pittsburgh has made one lineup change as Ramon Foster will start at right guard in place of Trai Essex.
Essex is active and has been benched in favor of Foster. The move is a coaches decision.
Chris Kemoeatu (ankle sprain) returns to the starting lineup and will start at left guard.
Meanwhile, Raiders All-Pro cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha is inactive along with wide receiver Darius Heyward-Bey, the team’s 2009 1st round pick.
