Bengals vs. Injury Report Steelers: News on TJ Watt, Joe Haden, Auden Tate and more

The Cincinnati Bengals got especially good news from the injury front during today’s Thanksgiving practice, as most of the 53-man roster was able to leave while prepping for the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Backup wide receiver Auden Tate (thigh) was the only player not to practice today. No other Bengal was even listed as restricted in practice. It’s rare to have a team this healthy after the middle of the regular season, and hopefully it will stay that way when Cincinnati makes a nudge for the postseason.

As for Pittsburgh, the big names to watch are TJ Watt (hip/knee), Trai Turner (knee), and Joe Haden (foot). Watt was restricted for a second straight day, while Haden was restricted today after not practicing on Wednesday. Turner was a full-fledged contestant after sitting out Wednesday.

Ben Rothlisberger (chest/right shoulder) was restricted for a second straight day but is expected to be good to go on Sunday.

Eric Ebron, who has yet to train this week, is said to be missing a lot of time with his knee problem.
