Here are the inactive lists for today’s game:
Bengals: LB Dontay Moch, CB Nate Clements, OG Clint Boling, TE Donald Lee, WR Ryan Whalen, DT Pat Sims, DE Carlos Dunlap
Steelers: WR Arnaz Battle, LB Chris Carter, QB Dennis Dixon, LB Larry Foote, DE Al Woods, OT Jamon Meredeith, NT Chris Hoke
The Bengal defense will be undermanned with both their top cornerbacks out (Leon Hall already lost for the year, and Nate Clements inactive), meaning Kelly Jennings and Adam Jones will start with Brandon Ghee seeing significant action. The defense line will also be down two, with their best pass rusher, Carlos Dunlap down again for the second straight game. Also down is Pat Sims, a big time contributor in the interior. Look for Jonathan Fanene to get more snaps at DT with Domata Peko and Geno Atkins.
On the Steeler side, they’ll miss LB Larry Foote and NT Chris Hoke, but for the most part they are as healthy as they’ve been in all year.
