Steelers injuries: Keenan Lewis, Cortez Allen should play vs. Bengals

Tom Pennington

Keenan Lewis, Cortez Allen and Mike Adams are expected to return to practice this week.

Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Keenan Lewis is optimistic about his ability to participate in practice this week and is expected to be available to play against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 16, according to head coach Mike Tomlin on Tuesday afternoon.

Lewis suffered a hip flexor injury in Week 14's contest against the San Diego Chargers. While the injury forced him to miss two days of practice last week, he was able to play in Week 15's game against the Dallas Cowboys. He recorded four tackles in the Steelers' overtime loss.

In addition, fellow cornerback Cortez Allen is expected to return to practice this week and is expected to be available against Cincinnati. Allen was unable to practice last week due to a groin injury and was unable to play against Dallas.

Offensive tackle Mike Adams is also expected to return to practice this week. He was unable to play in Week 15 due to an ankle injury.
