PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Steelers will be without three players in their Week 3 matchup with the Cincinnati Bengals.
Wide receiver Diontae Johnson and defensive tackle Carlos Davis are out with knee injuries. Linebacker Alex Highsmith will miss the game due to a lingering groin injury.
None of the three practiced throughout the week. Johnson and Highsmith were hurt in-game against the Las Vegas Raiders while Davis missed Week 2 with the same injury.
Linebacker T.J. Watt is questionable heading into Sunday. Watt told reporters on Friday that he did enough to "leave the door open" but doesn't know if he'll play yet or not.
"It doesn't really matter how many reps I get throughout the week," Watt said. "I was still able to run around here and do a lot of the things that I needed to do to keep the door open for Sunday."
The Steelers will turn to Melvin Ingram and Jamir Jones if Watt joins Highsmith on the sideline.
Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is not listed with an injury tag.
