Week 7 Injury Report (Bengals)

Posted Oct 20, 2017

A look at player injuries and practice participation for Week 7.

The Steelers will be without defensive end Stephon Tuitt on Sunday after he missed practice all week hampered by a back injury. Tuitt, who on Monday talked about his excitement for the Steelers-Bengals rivalry, has been officially ruled out for the game.

Tackle Marcus Gilbert missed practice all week as well with a nagging hamstring injury, and is listed as doubtful for the game.

Gilbert was inactive for the Bears, Ravens and Jaguars game, but returned to play against the Chiefs. He left the game early, though, a result of the hamstring bothering him.

If Gilbert can't go, it will once again be Chris Hubbard who steps in at right tackle. Hubbard has started three games in Gilbert's absence, and has held it down.

"He has been doing an excellent job," said Maurkice Pouncey. "He is playing multiple positions, guard, tackle, tight end. It's not as easy as it looks. He is an accountable player, goes out there and gets his job done and works his butt off. I respect him a lot."

Ramon Foster missed practice on Wednesday with his back injury, but returned to work on Thursday and Friday, holding true to what he said at the start of the week.

"I feel confident about it," said Foster. "If it's up to me, I'm rolling. If everything goes correctly, I am in there."

Foster said it was wise to rest this past week, giving him a chance to fully rebound rather than suffer any kind of setback.

"We are about to hit a stretch in the season where conference play comes along," said Foster. "We have Cincinnati, a late Sunday afternoon game. It was better to get rest in a non-divisional game than risk being out later."

On the linebacker front, Tyler Matakevich practiced all week after suffering a shoulder injury against the Chiefs. Vince Williams missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday with a hip injury he suffered against the Chiefs, but returned to work on Friday and said after practice, "I am full go."

Here is the current injury report for the Steelers' Week 7 game vs. Cincinnati.
