Insider Only Steelers Injury Buzz: Lewis listed as probable but likely won’t be at full strength vs Bengals

KEENAN LEWIS LIMITED IN FRIDAY’S PRACTICE
Cornerback Keenan Lewis did not practice on Thursday after hurting his knee late in Wednesday’s practice and today Lewis was limited, which would “usually” not be a good sign for Lewis who if healthy will have the matchup of shutting down Bengals star wide receiver A.J. Green.
The Steelers though listed Lewis as “probable” for Sunday, meaning he has a 75% chance to play. However, all indications are that Lewis is more “questionable” (50-50) for Sunday’s game and is expected to be a game time decision. Lewis has expressed confidence in playing all week but was not as certain today as he was earlier in the week, via Chris Adamski. “I did a lil movin around out there today,” Lewis said. “Feel like it’s gettin better…I’m gonna leave it up to God. I dont think he’ll limit me.” Lewis should dress but might be limited injury wise in the game.
MORE INJURY TIDBITS
*Cortez Allen will return to the lineup and start on Sunday. With Lewis likely not at full strength, Allen could be seeing a lot of A.J. Green…..Mike Adams is officially listed as “doubtful” and he won’t play…..

Pittsburgh will start Kelvin Beachum at RT again with Adams not fully ready……Emmanuel Sanders (ribs) practiced again today and is expected to be a full participant for Sunday’s game…..Ike Taylor is officially out and is targeting a return for the playoffs if the Steelers get there. He could be cleared for a limited role next week.
