Domata Peko returns, but James Wright and Margus Hunt still out at Bengals practice

The Bengals got one starter back prior to their showdown with the Steelers.

The Bengals hit the field Friday for their final pre-Steelers practice, and not out there once again were defensive end Margus Hunt, linebacker Vontaze Burfict and wide receiver James Wright. All three have yet to practice this week, so it's safe to assume none of them will play this week.

The good news is defensive tackle Domata Peko returned to the field Friday after missing the previous two days. A hyperextended elbow knocked him out of Sunday's win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but it looks like he'll be good to go vs. Pittsburgh. He's started every game at nose tackle for the past four seasons, and it looks like he'll have a chance to make it five if he can start the next four games.

Tight end Tyler Eifert continued to be held out, and it's probably safe to assume he won't play next week vs. the Cleveland Browns either.
