The Cincinnati Bengals will be off this week, but many of their players and coaches will undoubtedly be scouting their AFC North brethren this week. The Cleveland Browns will host the Pittsburgh Steelers, and the winner of that game will pull to within two games of the Bengals for the division lead. The best-case scenario is for the Steelers to lose this game. They have one of the easiest schedules the rest of the year, and host the Bengals on Sunday Night Football in Week 15.

It looks like the Steelers will have to beat the Browns without their top pass rusher, as the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports linebacker LaMarr Woodley is not at practice today and is “not expected” to play this week, and it looks like Woodley will find himself on the inactive list for the second straight game this season.

Here are the injury reports for both teams:
