Steelers could be without key pieces vs Bengals


Pittsburgh Steelers Pro Bowl wide receiver Antonio Brown missed his second consecutive practice Saturday with a toe injury and is listed as questionable for Monday night’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Brown, who leads the NFL in receptions (80) and receiving yards (1,195), has only missed one game since 2012, and that was the 2016 season finale when he was one of several starters who did not play with the Steelers having already clinched the AFC North Division.

›› Bengals will be without two starters against Steelers

Pittsburgh definitely will be without starting cornerback Joe Haden (fibula) and tight end Vance McDonald (ankle), while starting safety Mike Mitchell (ankle) is listed as doubtful.

›› Predicting Bengals-Steelers and all Week 13 games

Linebackers Ryan Shazier (ankle) and James Harrison (knee) did not practice Thursday or Friday, but both were full participants Saturday and neither is listed on the team’s game status report.
