Brett Keisel out again for Steelers

By Scott Brown

PITTSBURGH -- The Steelers will be without starting defensive end Brett Keisel for at least another week.

A nagging foot injury will sideline the 12-year veteran for the Steelers' Sunday night game against the Bengals. Keisel has played just one game since hurting his foot in the Steelers' 23-10 win over the Bills more than a month ago.

The Steelers are relatively healthy for their second game of the season against the Bengals.

Strong safety Troy Polamalu practiced Friday after sitting out the first two practices of the week because of a shoulder injury. He is among seven players who are listed as probable for the 8:30 p.m. ET game Sunday at Heinz Field.

Kelvin Beachum is also listed as probable after missing last Sunday's game with a knee injury. Barring a setback, the second-year player will start at left tackle against the Bengals.

Also probable are wide receivers Emmanuel Sanders (foot) and Jerricho Cotchery (shoulder), right tackle Marcus Gilbert (ankle), right guard David DeCastro (foot) and defensive end Ziggy Hood (ankle).

Nose tackle Steve McLendon (ankle) is listed as questionable.
