The Steelers had their last practice of the week today at the UPMC Rooney Sports Complex on the South Side in preparation for their game against the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday night.
Guard Kevin Doston suffered a shoulder injury in the third quarter against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday night and did not practice all week. Dotson has been ruled out for Monday night, and it's expected that J.C. Hassenauer will start at left guard with Matt Feiler placed on injured reserve earlier this week after suffering a pectoral injury against the Bills. It will be Hassenauer's first career start at left guard. His first two career starts came at center against the Baltimore Ravens and Washington Football Team when he was filling in for Maurkice Pouncey, who was on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
Running back James Conner is listed as questionable for the Bengals game after suffering a quad injury against the Bills. Conner missed practice on Thursday but was limited on Friday and Saturday.
Cornerback Joe Haden was a full participant for the third straight day after being out against Buffalo due to a concussion that he suffered on Dec. 7 against the Washington Football Team.
For the Bengals, quarterback Brandon Allen (knee) and linebacker Logan Wilson (ankle) both did not practice all week and have been ruled out for Monday night's game. Safety Brandon Wilson (hamstring) is listed as questionable. Wilson was limited on Thursday and Friday but was a full participant on Saturday. Ryan Finley will start at quarterback for Cincinnati in place of Allen.
