Steve McLendon out for Steelers

December, 15, 2013
PITTSBURGH – There are no surprises among the Pittsburgh Steelers' inactives, though starting nose tackle Steve McLendon joins defensive end Brett Keisel as an injury scratch.

McLendon played last Sunday on a sprained ankle, but he did not practice leading up to tonight’s game against the visiting Bengals.

Al Woods will start at nose tackle, while Ziggy Hood will start in place of Keisel. Rookie defensive end Brian Arnfelt is dressing for his first NFL game after the Steelers signed the Northwestern product off the practice squad on Saturday afternoon.

The healthy scratches for the Steelers include linebacker Stevenson Sylvester, wide receiver Derek Moye, cornerback Isaiah Green, center David Snow and quarterback Landry Jones.
