Thursday Injury/Practice Report: Dunlap, Benson Still Out for Bengals

New, comments

The Cincinnati Bengals took the practice field on Thursday with a slightly brighter outlook on the team's health status. On one hand defensive backs Nate Clements, Chris Crocker and Brandon Ghee all returned to practice as did wide receiver Jerome Simpson, but on the other hand, defensive end Carlos Dunlap, running back Cedric Benson and defensive tackle Domata Peko sat out again. This marks the fifth straight practice that Dunlap has missed which mean's he's likely to miss his second game in a row.

For the Steelers, Troy Polamalu returned to full practice on Thursday after sitting out on Wednesday and center/guard Maurkice Pouncey returned to practice, although he was limited. Ben Roethlisberger also showed up on the Steelers' practice report on Thursday as a limited participant in practice due to his hand injury. It's highly doubtful that he would miss the game on Sunday, though.
