Steelers injuries: Keenan Lewis and Cortez Allen on the practice field

Tom Pennington

Pittsburgh Steelers cornerbacks Keenan Lewis and Cortez Allen both returned to the practice field on Wednesday and appear on track to play against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Pittsburgh Steelers cornerbacks Keenan Lewis and Cortez Allen were both able to practice on Wednesday and should play on Sunday, helping to bolster Pittsburgh's injury depleted secondary. Lewis injured his hip against the Cowboys in Week 15 and was limited in practice on Wednesday, but told the media he would be ready to play against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. Allen was a full participant in practice after missing the Cowboys game with a groin injury.

Defensive end Cameron Heyward (not injury-related), safety Troy Polamalu (not injury-related), defensive end Al Woods (illness) and cornerback Ike Taylor (ankle) all sat out of practice on Wednesday. Polamalu sat out of practice on Wednesday and Thursday in each of the last two weeks. Taylor has already been ruled out as he continues to recover from a broken ankle.

In addition to Lewis, tackle Mike Adams (ankle) and wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders (ribs) were limited on Wednesday. Sanders suffered a broken rib against the Cowboys, but may be able to play against the Bengals. Wednesday marked the first practice for Adams since injuring his ankle on Nov. 25 against the Browns.
