Bengals Vs. Steelers: Eight Players Miss Practice For Bengals

The 7-4 Cincinnati Bengals got back onto the practice field Wednesday to prepare for the Pittsburgh Steelers in an important AFC North matchup that has playoff implications. The Bengals were missing eight players from practice, however. 

For the Bengals on Wednesday, wide receiver Jerome Simpson (knee), running back Cedric Benson (foot), cornerback Nate Clements (not injury related), safety Chris Crocker (biceps), defensive end Carlos Dunlap (hamstring), cornerback Brandon Ghee (groin), defensive tackle Domata Peko (foot) and linebacker Dontay Moch (not injury related) all did not practice. If Benson is out, that means the running back duties will fall once again on Bernard Scott to carry the load.

Tight end Donald Lee (foot) and defensive tackle Pat Sims (ankle) were both limited on Wednesday.
