The Pittsburgh Steelers have now released their final injury report of the week ahead of their Sunday home game against the Cincinnati Bengals and it shows that they’ll be without the services of defensive end Stephon Tuitt (knee) once again.
OUT: Will Allen, Terence Garvin, Stephon Tuitt and Mike Vick
PROB: Will Gay, Ben Roethlisberger and Cody Wallace

Tuitt, who suffered a knee sprain in the Week 6 game against the Arizona Cardinals, failed to practice again on Friday and has now been ruled out for Sunday’s game.
With Tuitt now out, the Steelers will be forced to start Cam Thomas once again at left defensive end.
Also ruled out on Friday were safety Will Allen (ankle), quarterback Mike Vick (hamstring) and linebacker Terence Garvin (knee).
This will mark the third game in a row that Allen has missed and that result in safety Robert Golden starting again in his place.
As expected, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (knee) ended the week listed as probable after practicing fully again on Friday. He’ll be backed-up by Landry Jones this week being as Vick has been ruled out. Center Cody Wallace (illness) is also listed as probable as he was added to the injury report on Friday with an illness.
Cornerback William Gay (shoulder) also ended the week listed as probable and he should play Sunday against the Bengals after suffering a shoulder contusion last week.
