    Injury Updates from Bengals.com


    Update: Houshmandzadeh probable
    By GEOFF HOBSON
    September 22, 2006

    Houshmandzadeh
    Wide receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh (heel) has been upgraded to probable after practicing Friday. With head coach Marvin Lewis saying he's already made the decision, look for Houshmandzadeh to make his 2006 debut Sunday in Pittsburgh.

    Lewis indicated left tackle Levi Jones is ready after resting his ankle last week against Cleveland, and Jones practiced in 11-on-11 Friday for the first time this week and still listed as probable. The probables who sat this week (linebacker Brian Simmons, defensive tackle Sam Adams, and left guard Eric Steinbach) all worked Friday.

    In Pittsburgh, Pro Bowl strong safety Troy Polamalu (shoulder) practiced again Friday and was updated to probable. Wide receiver Santonio Holmes (foot) practiced for the first time this week, but is questionable.

    They need to emphasize the run to extraordinary levels early.

    Force Polamalu to try and make tackles on that bum shoulder. Dollars to donuts they won't stick him in the box very often. That front seven's gonna have to get it done on their own.

    I really hate to be a Debbie Downer, but great teams rise to the occasion- I can't see Pittsburgh looking as awful as they did against Jacksonville.

    Jacksonville makes a lot of teams look bad offensively.

    Pittsburgh, 17-10

    I'm not sure that's a good plan at all.

    Pittsburgh's defense thrives in conditions like that because they're excellent in stopping the running game regardless of field condition. A wet field actually aids their pass rush because it offers less footing to the opposing offensive lineman who are forced to react to blitzes from anywhere and everywhere. IMO, the best case scenario for the Bengals is dry with little wind to allow Palmer to find holes in the zone coverage.

    In short, I personally feel that a condition-neutral game favors the Bengals.

    Then again, Pittsburgh might just not be a very good team at this point in the season. They had a lot of changes on the O side and Roethelsberger is struggling. The only equalizer I see right now is the injuries to Braham and Jackson.

    You stay classy, Joey Porter, you bum. Lap just called Porter dogmeat. The Bengals were trying to hurry up to the line to spike the ball and Porter knocked Bobbie Williams down from behind to try and slow them down.

    The bushest of the bush. That's Joey Porter.

    Getting that TD instead of a FG to end the half is so big! Wow.

    Big Ben QB rating: 30

    It's impressive we are ahead right now, considering how remarkably bad our D looked on the first two Steelers drives (well, until the interception in the endzone on that second drive).

    Yeah, the interception and the sack which put them out of easy FG range saved the D's butt that half.

    And once again the Steelers score on their 1st drive of the half. 37-yd FG for Reed makes it 14-10 Bengals. Once the Bengals stopped the run it got results. Making Ben throw seems to be the key. Steelers w/ the wind this quarter. That also seems to be a factor.

    Ike Taylor with a big INT... returns it 30 yards to the CINN 8-yd-line. Hit Henry's hands but he was hammered and it bounced out for the pick. Turnovers...
