Mathews’ injury leaves the team with just three healthy defensive linemen: Javon Hargrave, Daniel McCullers, and L.T. Walton. Two of those are nose tackles. Stephon Tuitt left earlier with a right knee injury.
The Bengals have already racked up 68 yards rushing against the Steelers in the first half with two touchdowns.
We’ll update you on Mathews’ return, if any, when we get word.
UPDATE: Mathews has returned to the Steelers’ lineup.
