Five players didn't practice on Thursday for the injury-riddled Steelers. Linebacker Chris Carter, tackle Marcus Gilbert, running backs Rashard Mendenhall and Isaac Redman, and safety Troy Polamalu all sat out. Linebacker Brandon Armstrong was able to fully participate after being limited on Wednesday, and Lawrence Timmons was also able to participate. Center Maurkice Pouncey was limited.
The Bengals had just two players out on Thursday, with wide receiver Armon Binns and running back Brian Leonard watching from the sidelines. Andrew Hawkins, Devon Still, and Kevin Zeitler were all limited on Wednesday, but participated fully on Thursday.
Sunday's matchup is an important game in the AFC North. The Steelers are trying to bounce back from a last-second loss to the Tennessee Titans on Sunday that left Pittsburgh at 2-3.
