Pittsburgh Steelers Injury Report, Week 13: Ben Roethlisberger, Troy Polamalu Probable For Cincinnati Bengals Game

The Pittsburgh Steelers list quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and safety Troy Polamalu as probable for Sunday's game against AFC North rival Cincinnati Bengals after both players practiced in full on Friday. Roethlisberger is battling a fractured thumb on his right (throwing) hand, an injury he aggravated during Thursday's practice and forced him to sit early. Polamalu, contending with concussion-like symptoms suffered in Sunday's win against the Kansas City Chiefs, missed Wednesday's practice, but practiced without limits on Thursday and Friday.

The other Steelers wounded to practice in full Friday, and thus to be listed as probable for the Bengals game, are center Maurkice Pouncey, wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders, linebacker Stevenson Sylvester, and linebacker LaMarr Woodley.

In less positive news, linebacker Larry Foote practiced in a limited capacity Friday, the third straight day he was ruled out of a full practice. The team lists him as questionable.

Wide receiver Arnaz Battle and linebacker Chris Carter sat out Friday's practice completely and will not play Sunday.
