PITTSBURGH (AP) -Wide receiver Chad Ocho Cinco wasn't the only starter missing from a Cincinnati Bengals lineup that was filled with backups Thursday night in Pittsburgh.
Ocho Cinco, formerly known as Chad Johnson, was held out for violating team rules and replaced by Glenn Holt.
Also missing were cornerback Johnathan Joseph (knee) and safety Chinedum Ndukwe (foot). Joseph was replaced by David Jones and Chris Crocker, who had a sack and an interception Sunday against Philadelphia, took Ndukwe's place.
Joseph was expected to play in the game but was not in the starting lineup.
njuries, the Bengals had a new left side of their offensive line in left tackle Anthony Collins and left guard Nate Livings. Starting left tackle Levi Jones and left guard Andrew Whitworth were ruled out Wednesday.
The Steelers were without left tackle Marvel Smith, who missed a sixth consecutive game with a back injury and was replaced by Max Starks.
Cornerback Roy Lewis, signed last week because of injuries, also was inactive.
