Steelers vs. Bengals: Rashard Mendenhall, Isaac Redman, Troy Polamalu Inactive for Sunday Night Football

Jared Wickerham

The Steelers continue to be among the most injury-ravaged teams in the league with several key players not suiting up Sunday night against the Cincinnati Bengals.

The Pittsburgh Steelers will be severely depleted for their Sunday night tilt against their divisional foe, the Cincinnati Bengals, especially in the backfield. Running backs Rashard Mendenhall and Isaac Redman will be on the sidelines, inactive, for the game. Jonathan Dwyer and Baron Batch are expected to carry the load in their stead.

In addition, the Steelers will continue to miss safety Troy Polamalu and center Maurkice Pouncey as they nurse injuries. The rest of the inactives: QB Charlie Batch, outside linebacker Chris Carter and offensive tackle Marcus Gilbert.

The Bengals will have wide receiver Andrew Hawkins on the field, but will be missing several key members of their defense, including defensive back Jason Allen and first-round pick Dre Kirkpatrick. The rest of their inactives are wide receiver Armon Binns, running back Brian Leonard, linebacker Dontay Moch, tight end Richard Quinn and defensive tackle Brandon Thompson. Terence Newman and Nate Clements will spend time in the backfield as Kirkpatrick sits.
