 PITTSBURGH (AP) -Pittsburgh wide receiver Santonio Holmes will miss a second consecutive game because of a sprained ankle, and safety Troy Polamalu also is expected to sit out the Steelers' game Sunday night against Cincinnati.
Polamalu (sprained knee) didn't practice this week except for some light jogging Friday and is listed as doubtful. Holmes was ruled out Friday after not practicing all week.
Both starters were hurt during the Steelers' 19-16 overtime loss to the New York Jets on Nov. 18, and it was anticipated then both might sit out multiple games.
Neither Holmes nor Polamalu played Monday in the Steelers' 3-0, last-minute victory over the Miami Dolphins.
Also doubtful is left tackle Marvel Smith, who was unexpectedly forced to sit out Monday because of a sore back. Smith also did not practice this week.
The Steelers (8-3), who own a one-game lead over Cleveland (7-4) in the AFC North, are looking for a season sweep of the Bengals (4-7). They won in Cincinnati 24-13 on Oct. 28.
