The Bengals will not have A.J. Green (ankle) for yet another week, but with luck, that will be the lone key absence Zac Taylor’s offense should have to deal with.
After missing practice on Wednesday and Thursday, Auden Tate (concussion) did practice today after passing through the concussion protocol and could be available to play on Sunday.

Tate was limited in practice and was the only player listed there on the injury report. He’s listed as questionable along with Stanley Morgan, who missed all week of practice with an illness. If he’s also questionable, then the team feels he can recover in time for Sunday.
Alex Redmond (ankle/knee) will not only be active for this game, he may start at left guard over Billy Price (back). Redmond practiced in full all throughout this week.
Price and Shawn Williams (thumb) were both able to fully participate in practice today after being limited on Wednesday and Thursday and will be active on Sunday.
Geno Atkins got two rest days this week but did practice today and is set to play. There were thoughts that the knee injury he was listed with last week was hindering him, but it won’t keep him out of this game.
Drew Sample (ankle) remains out, but for the first time all season, Cordy Glenn (concussion) will be active and will start at left tackle. Glenn hasn’t been listed on the injury report for the past few weeks but the coaching staff finally gave him the green light to practice with the starters this week and there were no setbacks.
The Steelers have also declared two offensive players out for Sunday. JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion/knee) and James Conner (shoulder) will not play after each missed practice all week.
Artie Burns (knee) didn’t miss practice this week and went full today but is listed as doubtful. Burns is the lone member of Pittsburgh’s starting defense that could be out on Sunday. Bud Dupree (triceps) had a full practice today and yesterday after being limited on Wednesday, so he’ll be going up against Glenn in the trenches.
