Jermaine Gresham Questionable With Hamstring Injury

Cincinnati Bengals tight end Jermaine Gresham returned to practice on Friday and is listed as "Questionable" for Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers with a hamstring injury that has kept him out the last two weeks.

Gresham returned to practice on a limited basis on Wednesday before being held out on Thursday. Gresham was limited again on Friday and is expected to be a game-time decision on Sunday.

The second-year tight end has emerged as a security blanket for rookie quarterback Andy Dalton, catching 25 passes for 231 yards and three touchdowns in the first six games of the season. Dalton has gone 40-of-68 for 385 yards with five touchdowns and two interceptions the last two weeks, with the bulk of his passes going to wide receivers A.J. Green, Andre Caldwell and Jerome Simpson.

Should Gresham miss a third straight game with the hamstring, veteran Donald Lee will get the start for the Bengals. Lee has eight receptions for 106 yards on the season, including six catches for 93 yards the last two weeks.
