Five Bengals have been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Chiefs: Giovani Bernard, Darqueze Dennard, Tyler Kroft, Billy Price and Nick Vigil. The only questionable player is Shawn Williams, who was listed as a full participant in Friday's walkthrough. It's unclear if he's passed through concussion protocol or not since Friday practices do not involve contact. CJ Uzomah, John Ross, Vincent Rey, Jordan Evans, Andy Dalton, Carlos Dunlap, Clayton Fejedelem and Cordy Glenn were all full participants and would be listed as probable if that designation still existed. So John Ross will return on Sunday.

Giovani Bernard, Darqueze Dennard, Tyler Kroft, Billy Price and Nick Vigil didn't practice. Shawn Williams moved to the next phase of concussion protocol and was able to practice in a limited capacity. CJ Uzomah and Vinny Rey were also limited, as was AJ Green for non-injury reasons that caused him to come to practice late. Andy Dalton, Jordan Evans, Carlos Dunlap, Clayton Fejedelem, Cordy Glenn, Cedric Ogbuehi and John Ross practiced fully

Bengals C Billy Price is out of the walking boot, but not in the clear yet or close to playing right now. He's been rehabbing with the other injured players during practice. Price told reporters earlier in the month that he had a partially torn ligament in his right foot, and the medical staff is being cautious so he doesn't make it worse. Price said his frustration level has gotten higher simply because he wants to be back on the field after getting injured in Week 2. He declined to say what the timetable looked like for his return at this point. "I have my own personal goal, but my personal goal and what the medical staff says are two different things," he said. "I'm going to follow what they say and just take it a day at a time."

Antonio Brown's late TD sends Steelers over Bengals 28-21

James Conner ran for 111 yards and a pair of touchdowns on the eve of Le'Veon Bell's possible return, and Antonio Brown turned a short pass into a 31-yard touchdown with 10 seconds left as the Pittsburgh Steelers pulled off another improbable comeback...

Burfict lands hit on Brown's head (0:24)

The Bengals executed a quick, calm and efficient touchdown drive to tie the Steelers at the end of the first half after giving up a late touchdown. Bengals have done a great job of keeping their composure despite losing Nick Vigil and injuries to Vontaze Burfict and Darqueze Dennard. Dennard gave up a big catch to JuJu Smith-Schuster before going in the locker room, which led to a Steelers' touchdown. Bengals have also had issues with drops today. This rivalry is typically heated and it looked like things could get chippy early in the game, but things calmed down as the game went on.

Vontaze Burfict and Darqueze Dennard have right shoulder injuries. Injuries are piling up after Nick Vigil left with a knee injury.
