Steelers down two cornerbacks on Monday night


Steelers starting cornerback Cortez Allen and reserve corner Curtis Brown were among the seven inactive players declared by the club in advance of Monday night’s game at Cincinnati.

Neither inactive is a surprise. Allen (ankle) had been previously ruled out, and Brown (illness) was doubtful.

According to Bob Labriola of Steelers Digest, William Gay will start in place of Allen, while rookie safety Shamarko Thomas will be the club’s nickel back.

The Steelers’ other inactives are tight end Heath Miller (knee), running back Le’Veon Bell (foot), placekicker Shayne Graham, quarterback Landry Jones, offensive lineman Cody Wallace. Miller and Bell had already been ruled out for Week Two.

With Graham inactive, Shaun Suisham will handle the kicking for the Steelers. Graham was signed in the event Suisham (left hamstring) was unable to play, but Suisham went through full practices on Friday and Saturday and was listed as probable for Monday’s game.

    A.J. Green might have more receiving yards than the entire Steelers offense.

    They still have Ike for AJ, and he WILL shadow him everywhere. The last game ike played against AJ, he had 1 catch for 8 yards.

    I’d bet on eiffert/gresham/sanu doin WORK tonight though.

    Bengals win…17-13

    I just want to see a running game from either team bc passing on every play gets old fast.

    Ike Taylor will put the clamps on AJ Green… He’s done it before

    I like the Steelers, really I do – but they’ll be lucky to win 6 games this year. They have a lot of rebuilding to do.

    It’s going to be a long season for the Steelers.

    That will end in December.

    Eh this team was destined to be sub 500.

  10. Bronco$32&33 says: Sep 16, 2013 9:45 PM

    This team probably won’t break .500 anyways.
