In the second practice of the week leading up to the Steelers Monday night match up against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 4, Vance McDonald, Vince Williams, and Anthony Chickillo were unavailable for the second straight day. According to the Steelers PR Department, five players sat out of practice on Friday with another being limited.

As expected, Roosevelt Nix did not participate again on Friday and is most likely not available for Week 4. Other players missing a second straight day were Vince Williams with a hamstring and Anthony Chickillo with a foot injury. Both players did not play this past Sunday against the 49ers and their status for this week gives little hope for a return against the Bengals. Additionally, Vance McDonald missed his second straight practice of the week and will most likely have to return to the field tomorrow in order to have a chance to play on Monday.

Maurkice Pouncey and Mark Barron returned to the practice field on Friday while veteran guard Ramon Foster was given the day off with a coaches decision. Reserve OLB Jayrone Elliott was limited for the second straight day with a hamstring injury.

One pleasant surprise was the return of Joe Haden as a full participant on Friday. Returning for Friday’s practice the last two weeks, Hayden could have been given an additional day of healing with the Steelers game not until Monday, but the additional practice time is a welcomed sight for the 10 year veteran.

As for the Bengals injury report, according to, four players did not practice on Friday while eight others were limited. Included in the report is A.J. Green who is not expected to play on Monday. Other Bengals of note to miss time on Friday were Carlos Dunlap who was limited with a hamstring, and Carl Lawson who was out a second straight day also with a hamstring.
