Final Status/Injury Report: Carlos Dunlap Listed As Doubtful Against The Steelers

As Jason pointed out earlier this afternoon, Cincinnati Bengals defensive end Carlos Dunlap missed his third day of practice on Friday with a hamstring injury that was likely re-aggravated during his 13-snap performance against the Baltimore Ravens several weeks ago. According to the team's injury report, Dunlap is listed as Doubtful for Sunday's mega-super-critical division game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

If he's unable to go -- and it's more than likely he won't -- it will be the third game he's missed this season after suffering the injury with seven seconds remaining against the Tennessee Titans in week nine. That being said, the last time the Bengals played the Steelers (November 13, 2011), the defense posted a season-high five quarterback sacks and 13 hits on the quarterback.

Cornerback Nate Clements will also be a game-day decision, however defensive tackle Domata Peko and running back Cedric Benson, both having missed two practices this week, are probable.
