Steelers' Shazier carted off field after back injury

Steelers' Ryan Shazier suffers back injury, leaves game in ambulance

The hard-hitting game was full of personal fouls, penalties and injuries that could have a long-term effect, especially for the AFC North leaders.

Cornerback Joe Haden, linebacker James Harrison and tight end Vance McDonald are the notables among the inactives for the Steelers (9-2), who are riding a six-game win streak and have defeated the Bengals (5-6) five straight times.

Brown has 1,195 receiving yards on the season and a sizable lead over second-ranked (1,039). The team announced that Shazier had been taken to the hospital for further evaluation.

Pittsburgh lost leading tackler Ryan Shazier to a back injury in the first quarter.

Interestingly, though, as Blitzburgh also pointed out, the last loss that Tomlin and the Steelers suffered on Monday Night Football came against the Bengals back in 2013.

Bottled up by Cincinnati's aggressive defense in the first half, Pittsburgh's playmakers made the difference down the stretch, just as they have all season. Then on their first possession of the third quarter, Le'Veon Bell caught a short pass and tiptoed the sideline past Bengals corner William Jackson III for a 35-yard touchdown to make the score 17-10.
