Steelers Injury Report: Keisel Out; McLendon Questionable; Polamalu Probable
The Pittsburgh Steelers final injury report for their Sunday night game against the Cincinnati Bengals is now out and it shows only one player listed as out.
Defensive end Brett Keisel (foot) did not practice again on Friday and he will miss a second consecutive game due to a foot problem that has plagued him now for several weeks.
Nose tackle Steve McLendon (ankle) is listed as questionable for the Bengals game, but is expected to play.
Safety Troy Polamalu (shoulder), wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders (foot), tackle Kelvin Beachum (knee), wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery (shoulder), guard David DeCastro (foot), tackle Marcus Gilbert (ankle) and defensive end Ziggy Hood (ankle) all end the week as probable.
Polamalu didn’t practice on Wednesday and Thursday but was able to work on Friday. Sanders, who was added to the injury report on Thursday with a foot injury, is also expected to be good to go Sunday night.
Being as Beachum was able to practice fully all week, he is expected to start at left tackle after missing the game last Sunday with a knee sprain.
