PITTSBURGH (AP) -Steelers kicker Jeff Reed probably won't miss any games because of a groin injury he sustained in a win over Jacksonville on Sunday night.
Pittsburgh (4-1) is off this week, and Reed said Tuesday he should be fine for the Oct. 19 game at Cincinnati.
Reed could have attempted a field goal during the Steelers' final possession if necessary, coach Mike Tomlin said.
The Steelers, trailing 21-20, scored on Ben Roethlisberger's 8-yard touchdown pass to Hines Ward with 1:53 remaining for a 26-21 victory. If the drive had stalled, Reed might have been needed to attempt a potential go-ahead field goal.
``I don't know how far (Reed could have kicked) and thankfully we didn't have to find out,'' Tomlin said Tuesday. ``He had a kick in him if we needed it. The outer limits of his range remained a question.''
Reed is 9-for-9 on field goals this season.
l practice next week.
Defensive end Brett Keisel, out for three weeks with an injured calf, practiced Tuesday and might be ready to return.
``He was the liveliest set of legs we had out there,'' Tomlin said.
Running back Willie Parker, who has missed two games with a sprained knee, previously said he would play against the Bengals.
Among those sitting out the Steelers' only practice of the bye week were Roethlisberger (shoulder), offensive tackle Marvel Smith (groin), nose tackle Casey Hampton (groin), cornerback Deshea Townsend (heel) and safety Troy Polamalu (quadriceps).
Roethlisberger had pain in his slightly separated right shoulder during the fourth quarter against Jacksonville, but that didn't prevent him prevent him from going 6-of-8 for 61 yards during the decisive 80-yard drive.
