    Looking through the depth chart and trying to figure out who doesnt dress based on special teams (I know injuries will make these decisions for us soon) but right now who sits?

    I think its 6 of these 7, just trying to figure out who dresses to play STs:

    Johnnie Troutman - injured
    Tourek Williams - injured
    Craig Mager - Backup Gunner
    Tyrell Williams - Backup Gunner (Flashed in this role in Pre-Season)
    Tyreek Burwell - No ST value, but does he dress as the 8th lineman on Sundays
    Donald Brown - Please don't be the up back and get Scifres killed again.
    Nick Dzubnar - Flashed at ST's in pre-season as well

    Not to be a pedantic pain in the *** but isn't it only 46 that can suit up for the game?

    I reckon it will be the following - Trout, Tourek, Burwell, Inman (still a bit banged up no?), Donald Brown (it's he or Oliver), Dzubnar, Mager.

    Yes its 46 but can be 47 if you designate one of the 7 as your third QB.

    Can you explain why that is for QB and not any other position?

    They changed the rule about 10 years ago after a rash of QB's and backups went down in the same game. No one ever dressed their third QB. So those teams had to go with non-QB's for a portion of the time. In the off-season they added the rule that you can dress your third QB and not be part of the 46, but he can only go in if both QB's in front of him get hurt in the same game.
