The Steelers will have William Gay as their starter at corner Monday night, as today the team ruled starter Cortez Allen out for the game vs the Bengals.
Allen will sit with an ankle injury, one that he suffered last week in the loss to the Titans.
Rookie Shamarko Thomas will take the spot of Gay in the Steelers nickel package.
Also out for the contest is tight end Heath Miller, as well as running back Le’Veon Bell.
Cornerback Curtis Brown remains listed as doubtful with illness.
