There’s a sick bug reported around the Cincinnati Bengals locker room, that kept Linebacker James Harrison out of practice today. He will definitely be on the field Sunday night carrying extra motivation, as he is returning back to Heinz Field for the first time as a visitor.

Running back BenJarvus Green-Eills was the first player to miss practice this week with the “sick bug”. He also didn’t practiced Thursday, even though he did take part in the walkthrough early in the morning, before being sent home as the rest of the team practiced indoors at the University of Cincinnati practice bubble. Linebacker Vontaze Burfict also didn’t practice today, as he was effected by the bug.

The team is expecting to have all three in the game this Sunday night in Pittsburgh against the Steelers.
