The Bengals' injury report cleared up some questions on Friday. Many wondered whether Carlos Dunlap would play on Sunday against the Steelers after being limited on Wednesday and Thursday in practice. But, Dunlap was not given an injury designation on the final injury report after fully practicing on Friday, an indication he will be playing on Sunday. The same goes for Adam Jones who was limited on Wednesday with a back injury. Pat Sims is questionable heading into the weekend after not practicing on Wednesday or Thursday. But, Sims was a full participant on Friday.
Still, it's important to note, the Bengals' Friday practice is really just a walkthrough, so, no one is working too hard at the final official practice of the week.
As for the Steelers, they've ruled Senquez Golson, Roosevelt Nix and Cody Wallace out for the game. Linebacker Ryan Shazier who practiced fully for the first time since hurting his knee on Monday against Washington is designated as questionable. Additionally, wide receiver Markus Wheaton is also questionable and was downgraded at practice today from a full participant on Thursday to only a partial participant on Friday.
