AFC North injury update
By Jamison Hensley
A look at the key injuries around the division:
BENGALS: WR A.J. Green (knee) returned to practice after missing last Sunday's game. But QB Andy Dalton (right shoulder) was unexpectedly limited, although it's likely not serious. OT Andrew Whitworth (thigh) was also limited. DE Carlos Dunlap (hamstring) and DT Domata Peko (foot) both didn't practice.
BROWNS: RB Montario Hardesty (calf) returned to practice with limited participation, which is a sign that he's progressing. RB Peyton Hillis (hamstring) and SS T.J. Ward (foot) have already been declared out by coach Pat Shurmur.
RAVENS: LB Ray Lewis (toe) is questionable, although he is expected to play Thanksgiving night against San Francisco. His backup, Dannell Ellerbe (thigh), is also questionable.
STEELERS: LB LaMarr Woodley (hamstring) returned to practice, which is good news for the Steelers. WR Emmanuel Sanders (knee) had full participation for the first time in weeks, which is even better news for Pittsburgh. QB Ben Roethlisberger (right thumb) was limited in practice but he'll start Sunday night.
