Pittsburgh Steelers nose tackle Steve McLendon has left the Sunday night game against the Cincinnati Bengals with a shoulder injury.
McLendon has missed several games with a shoulder injury and he appeared to re-injure it early in the game.
With McLendon sidelined, rookie Daniel McCullers has been seeing snaps in the Steelers base defense.
The Bengals currently lead the Steelers 10-7 in the second quarter.
Update: McLendon suffered a stinger but is expected to return to the game.
