The Pittsburgh Steelers have wrapped up their Wednesday practice as they prepare to play the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday night at Heinz Field for the AFC North title and the first injury report of the week has now been released.
Limited Wednesday were safety Troy Polamalu (knee) and cornerback Ike Taylor (shoulder, forearm). Both players missed the game Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs but Steelers defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau said Wednesday he’s hopeful that both players will be able to play Sunday against the Bengals.
Practicing fully Wednesday were tackle Kelvin Beachum (back), tight end Matt Spaeth (elbow) and linebacker Vince Williams (ankle). Spaeth missed the game Sunday against the Chiefs while Beachum and Williams are both expected to be ready to play come Sunday night.
The Steelers wont practice on Christmas day, so expect the team to release a projected injury report late Thursday afternoon.
