The Bengals' secondary has been adjusting to the loss of Leon Hall for the past two games. They might be in bigger trouble on Sunday for the rematch in Pittsburgh.
Cornerback Nate Clements tweaked his hamstring during Thursday's practice and was limited. Adam Jones just got back to 100 percent after being hampered by hamstring and groin injuries.
Depending on Clements' health, Brandon Ghee could see playing time at corner. Since being signed to the 53-man roster after Hall's season-ending Achilles injury, Ghee has been used on special teams but was also limited in practice due to a groin injury.
If Clements would be ruled inactive or was limited in the game, that would give a big advantage to the Steelers, who can stretch the field with Mike Wallace and Antonio Brown. If the Bengals are low on corners, safeties Chris Crocker and Gibril Wilson could play slot corner in nickel packages.
