NFL Week 15 Bengals vs Steelers: Thursday injury report includes A.J. Green limited again

The Bengals had A.J. Green practicing again, but his workload suggests he may not be active vs the Steelers.

The Bengals and Steelers each had key starters return to practice Thursday after sitting out Wednesday.

Among them for Cincinnati was cornerback Adam Jones, who was back practicing after getting a veteran's rest day off Wednesday. Wide receiver James Wright also returned for a full session after sitting out for much of the past two weeks.

A.J. Green continued to be limited with his workload, so we shouldn't get too excited about the All-Pro receiver playing Sunday. Brandon LaFell was able to go full Thursday after being limited Wednesday.

In Pittsburgh, Ben Roethlisberger and Maurkice Pouncey both practiced today after sitting out Wednesday with what looked like veteran's rest days off.

Backup running back DeAngelo Williams popped back up on the injury report with his knee injury, which has caused him to miss the last five games. He now looks very iffy for Sunday.

The same is true of Darrius Heyward-Bey and Shamarko Thomas, both of whom missed a second-straight practice on Thursday. Expect them to be out on Sunday.

Here is the Thursday practice and injury report for both teams.
