Bengals DT Tank Johnson out vs Steelers

Bengals defensive tackle Tank Johnson was inactive for a game

Monday night against Pittsburgh, hobbled by a sprained knee.

Johnson was hurt late in a 22-14 loss to Miami last week and

didn’t practice during the week. He was listed as questionable

heading into the game. Pat Sims was expected to make his first

start of the season and 15th in a three-year career.

The Steelers got defensive end Brett Keisel back from a

hamstring injury that sidelined him for the past two games.

Defensive end Aaron Smith didn’t practice last week and was

inactive with an injured triceps.
