Several big names were missing from the Pittsburgh Steelers practice on Wednesday, including safety Troy Polamalu, running back Rashard Mendenhall and center Maurkice Pouncey.

Several starting Pittsburgh Steelers were forced to miss practice on Wednesday due to injury concerns.

On the defensive side of the ball, safety Troy Polamalu sat out with the calf injury which has forced him to miss all but two of the Steelers games this season. Linebackers Lawrence Timmons (foot) and Chris Carter (hamstring) both also missed practice. Polamalu and Carter have already been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals, but Timmons was an unexpected entry to the injury report.

On offense, the Steelers were without running backs Rashard Mendenhall (Achilles) and Isaac Redman (ankle). Both running backs are questionable for Sunday's game. Center Maurkice Pouncey (knee) and tackle Marcus Gilbert (ankle) both missed practice on Wednesday as well. Gilbert is out for the Bengals game and Pouncey is unlikely to play.

Linebacker Brandon Johnson (hamstring) was limited at practice, but linebacker Lamar Woodley (hamstring) was a full participant.
