The Pittsburgh Steelers suffered a number of injuries during Thursday's 26-23 loss to the Tennessee Titans, but none perhaps worse than the Achilles' injury suffered by running back Rashard Mendenhall. But before we get to Mendenhall, a look at the rest of the injuries for the Steelers, who were already without perhaps their most important player, safety Troy Polamalu, who sat out the game because of an injured right calf. Center Maurkice Pouncey hurt his right leg on the first play of the game and missed the rest of the game.

Pittsburgh (2-3) at Cincinnati (3-3) Time: 5:15 p.m. TV: Channel 4 Story line: History supports Pittsburgh in this AFC North contest (Steelers have won four straight and nine of 11 in the rivalry.). Things are different this season, however. The Steelers are reeling with injuries to safety Troy Polamalu, running back Rashard Mendenhall and linebacker James Harrison, plus they re coming off a loss at weak Tennessee. The Bengals have lost two straight and don't possess much of a run game.

The agent for Bam Morris said the former Pittsburgh Steeler running back is taking a deserved second chance, but the Steelers think Morris is profiting unfairly from a drug-related suspension. Agent Steve Zucker argues it was the Steelers' choice to abandon Morris on July 10 after he was put on probation in Texas for possessing nearly six pounds of marijuana. Morris would have made $185,600 with the Steelers this season.

Key: Ben Roethlisberger passed for three touchdowns and James Harrison had three sacks and forced a fumble. The Lions drove to the Steelers' 21 before three sacks and an incompletion ended the threat as black-and-gold-clad road fans cheered wildly. Steelers said: "That worked in our favor. Those offensive linemen couldn't hear the snap count, so they had to watch the ball just like we do." -- LaMarr Woodley Lions said: "I still think we have a good ballclub here, but a good ballclub will look at a situation like this and use it to find a way to start winning these games."

Ben Roethlisberger's throwing got fast-starting Pittsburgh going on its first two drives, Rashard Mendenhall surpassed his previous career total with 165 yards rushing and two scores and the Steelers opened a 28-point lead, then held on to beat the San Diego Chargers, 38-28, on Sunday night. The Chargers (2-2), outgained nearly four to one until late in the third quarter, made an apparent blowout close as Philip Rivers threw touchdown passes of 30 yards to Antonio Gates and 13 yards to Chris Chambers and Jacob Hester scored on a 41-yard fumble return, all in the fourth quarter.
