Bengals vs. Steelers: Terence Newman out while everyone else is probable

Andy Lyons

The team released their final injury and practice report for the week, as the Bengals head to Pittsburgh for a Sunday Night showdown against the Steelers.

Cincinnati Bengals running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis and Vontaze Burfict returned to practice on Friday after sitting with an illness on Thursday -- Green-Ellis was also out on Wednesday. Both are expected to play this weekend against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Linebacker James Harrison sat for a second consecutive practice with the same bug that affected Green-Ellis and Burfict, however all three are listed as probable.

Kevin Zeitler, who practiced this week, as well as last week but didn't play against the Colts despite being active, is probable, as is George Ilolka, who came off concussion protocols earlier this week after suffering a head injury against the Indianapolis Sunday.

Zeitler's case presents an interesting scenario, however. Do the Bengals keep what's not broken on the offensive line and allow Mike Pollak to start at right guard? No, they won't. Seriously? Stop. The initial configuration for Sunday appears to be Anthony Collins (left tackle), Andrew Whitworth (left guard), Kyle Cook (center), Zeitler (right guard) and Andre Smith (right tackle).

Terence Newman remains out - though that should be expected for a while.
