PITTSBURGH (AP) The Cincinnati Bengals don't have to worry about facing Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor on Sunday.

Coach Mike Tomlin says Taylor will miss his third straight game while recovering from a fractured ankle. The Steelers also placed cornerback DeMarcus Van Dyke on injured reserve with a shoulder injury.

Pittsburgh signed former Penn State cornerback and Pittsburgh native Justin King to take Van Dyke's place on the roster. King was a fourth-round selection by the St. Louis Rams in 2008 and played five games this season in Indianapolis before being released.

The Steelers (7-7) need to win each of their final two games - vs. Cincinnati (8-6) and Cleveland (5-9) - to advance to the playoffs for the third straight season. Pittsburgh beat the Bengals 24-17 in the teams' first meeting on Oct. 21.
