PITTSBURGH -- The major injuries continue to pile up between the Cincinnati Bengals and Steelers.
The latest just announced in the third quarter is that Bengals tailback Cedric Benson will not return to the game. Benson injured his hip in the second quarter, and at the time his return was listed as "probable."
Pittsburgh is already without safety Troy Polamalu, who re-injured his knee in the first quarter. Several other players on both teams have been banged up and in and out of the game.
The Bengals are up, 12-9, in a physical slugfest.
