Steelers injuries: Cortez Allen, Keenan Lewis appear likely to play vs. Bengals

USA TODAY Sports

Pittsburgh's injury situation for Week 16 became clearer on Thursday.

The Pittsburgh Steelers will likely have cornerbacks Cortez Allen and Keenan Lewis, along with wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders, on Sunday when they face the Cincinnati Bengals with playoff hopes on the line. Both Allen and Sanders fully participated in practice Thursday, according to Mike Bires of the Beaver County Times. Lewis did not practice, but says he will be ready to go against the Bengals, Steelers Depot reports.

Allen hasn't played since Week 14 as he battles a groin injury. Lewis and Sanders both were injured in the Steelers' loss to the Dallas Cowboys last Sunday. Like Allen, Lewis also is dealing with a groin injury while Sanders deals with a rib issue.

One player who won't see as much playing time this week will be tackle Mike Adams. Bires also noted that Adams was limited in practice and Kelvin Beachum will likely receive the start. Adams hasn't played since Week 12 after suffering a high ankle sprain.
