What the experts have to say about the Steelers’ latest injury report

The Steelers are back on the field for their regular-season finale against the Bengals, and they’ll be without the services of two key players.

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who was injured last week against the Lions, has been ruled out for the Bengals game, as has running back Le’Veon Bell.

Roethlisberry, the Steelers most experienced quarterback, was injured in the fourth quarter of a 24-24 overtime win against the Dallas Cowboys last Sunday.

Bell was injured on a punt return in the third quarter of the game and was taken to the hospital.

Bell has been out since the end of last season with a torn ACL.

The Steelers had hoped to be able to sign him to a long-term deal this offseason.

Bell signed a one-year deal worth $7 million.

Bell missed all of last year with a concussion, but he was expected to return in time to take the field against the Steelers.

The 28-year-old is a career 70.6 passer rating when targeting the ball.

The Bengals will be without left tackle Kevin Zeitler, who missed last week’s game with a knee injury.

The Bengals have been without starting wide receiver Jeremy Maclin since early September.

The team announced Wednesday that Maclin will miss the remainder of the season with an ankle injury.

Maclin, 28, was a seventh-round pick of the Bengals in 2015.

The Steelers also have been limited to one healthy wide receiver this season, and that is tight end Ben Roach.

He has been inactive this season with his shoulder injury.

Roach is the Steelers third-leading receiver behind tight end Antonio Brown and wide receiver Mike Wallace.
