Steelers-Bengals Preview

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Aaron Smith was inactive Sunday because of a sprained knee ligament. So was the player who was supposed to block him.

Cincinnati Bengals right tackle Willie Anderson has a sore knee and foot, the second time this season he has missed a game.

Smith has started all but three game since 2000. He hurt his left knee in the first quarter of a 31-28 loss to Denver last Sunday and didn't return. He sat out practices all week.

The Steelers also were without two members of their secondary. Safety Ryan Clark hurt his spleen in Denver, and cornerback Bryant McFadden has a sprained ankle.
