Bengals Vs. Steelers: Maurkice Pouncey And Troy Polamalu Miss Practice

The Pittsburgh Steelers hit the practice field today to prepare for their AFC North match up with the Cincinnati Bengals and were missing some key players at practice. Center Maurkice Pouncey was absent from practice with an illness, the same illness that knocked him out of the game against the Kansas City Chiefs. Safety Troy Polamalu also missed practice today with a head injury, but both Polamalu and Pouncey are expected to play on Sunday. Linebacker Chris Carter also missed practice with a hamstring injury and is not expected to play.

Linebacker LaMarr Woodley returned to practice and is expected to play on Sunday, the first time he will play since Week 8. Wide receiver Arnaz Battle and linebacker Stevenson Sylvester were both limited in practice today, but both are expected to be available on Sunday.
