The Cincinnati Bengals have a short week to prepare to play the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday night at Heinz Field for the AFC North title and on Wednesday their first injury report of the week shows that several players will have an even shorter week.
Not practicing Wednesday were linebacker Chris Carter (knee), quarterback Andy Dalton (illness), defensive end Wallace Gilberry (hamstring), wide receiver A.J. Green (biceps), tight end Jermaine Gresham (illness), safety Reggie Nelson (illness) and cornerback Terence Newman (illness).
Green is expected to play Sunday night after suffering a bruised arm Monday night. In addition, all of the players out Wednesday battling the flu should be ready to play against the Steelers as well.
Limited Wednesday were cornerback Darqueze Dennard (shin), linebacker Emmanuel Lamur (hamstring) and wide receiver James Wright (knee).
