Steelers Injury Report: Pittsburgh is a healthy team headed into a huge AFC game

New, comments

The Pittsburgh Steelers are a healthy team heading into the game against the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday. A good thing considering they will need everyone available to upset the 10-2 Bengals.

The 7-5 Pittsburgh Steelers are looking to go into Cincinnati and enhance their chances of making the 2015 postseason with a victory over the 10-2 Bengals. For this to happen, the Steelers will need all hands on deck, and that is exactly what they will have looking at the team's injury report.

The main two injuries of concern are to Heath Miller (ribs) and William Gay (concussion). Both practiced Friday, and are obviously on the injury report as probable to play Sunday. Miller told reporters after practice he was able to do what he normally does on a Friday, but his availability will still be a game-time decision. As for Gay, he hopes to play, but ultimately is leaving the decision up to the doctors and medical staff of the Steelers.

Other players who are listed as probable on the injury report are: Matt Spaeth (knee), Sean Spence (hamstring), Sammie Coates (illness), James Harrison and Greg Warren (maintenance days).

The Steelers beating the Bengals Sunday will not just enhance their chances of a postseason berth, but will delay the Bengals celebrating winning the AFC North Division title for 2015, something the Steelers were able to accomplish in 2014.

The Steelers vs. Bengals kickoff will take place at 1:00 p.m. EDT on Sunday in Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati, OH.
