Bengals cornerback Johnathan Joseph will miss his four game this year, with a high ankle sprain, against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday. Jonathan Wade will make his third consecutive start on the year, dating back to his first game against the New York Jets on Thanksgiving night. With Joseph out, that leaves the Bengals in serious trouble with only three cornerbacks on the active roster -- the third being Fred Bennett. It's likely the team will use one of their backup safeties in a cornerback role, such as Chinedum Ndukwe.
Jermaine Gresham, who spent the week out of town after the death of his grandmother Monday Night, is activated for today's game at Heinz Field.
The Bengals inactive list:
