The Steelers released their first injury report of the week on Thursday for their Monday night game against the Bengals in Cincinnati. Overall the Steelers are a healthy unit as DE Aaron Smith (triceps) was the only player not to practice on Thursday as expected and the only player listed on the injury report. DE Brett Keisel looks to return from his two game absence from a hamstring injury and worked fully as did RB Isaac Redman and T Flozell Adams. Both Redman and Adams were dinged up this past Sunday night in New Orleans with slight ankle sprains.
For the Bengals on Thursday, DE Jonathan Fanene (hamstring), DT Tank Johnson (knee) and LB Roddrick Muckelroy (ankle) all sat out practice with Fanene being already ruled out this week. LB Keith Rivers (foot) and DE Frostee Rucker (knee) were both limited in practice while CB Johnathan Joseph (ankle), S Chinedum Ndukwe (knee) and S Roy Williams (knee) practiced fully.
