Steelers/NFL Videos

Saturday, Nov. 14, 2009
 

• Defensive end Travis Kirschke (calf) and running back Carey Davis (hamstring) did not practice all week and won't play in Sunday's 1 p.m. game against Cincinnati at Heinz Field. Kirschke will miss his second consecutive game. Davis was injured last week against Denver. Safety Tyrone Carter returned to practice after sitting out Thursday because of illness. Linebacker Lawrence Timmons, who did not play against Denver because of an ankle injury, is expected to start against the Bengals.

• Cincinnati linebacker Keith Rivers, who is second on the team with 67 tackles, is listed as doubtful with a calf injury. Guard Evan Mathis is also doubtful. Rivers and Mathis are not expected to play. Wide receiver Andre Caldwell, defensive tackle Tank Johnson and center Jonathan Luigs did not practice due to illness and are listed as probable. Defensive end Robert Geathers (hip) was limited in practice and is also probable. Fullback Jeremi Johnson (chest) and defensive tackle Frostee Rucker (neck) both practiced and are listed as questionable.

• Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace was named Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week. Wallace caught five passes for 69 yards, including a 25-yard touchdown reception in the Steelers' 28-10 win over Denver. After the regular season, five players will be nominated for Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Year honors. Fans can vote for the winner on NFL.com/rookies throughout the month of January.
