In a move that was expected, the Bengals have officlally declared cornerback Terence Newman (knee) out of Sunday night’s game at Pittsburgh.

The 35-year-old Newman has not practiced all week. According to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, Newman has a sprained MCL, an injury that was assumed to keep him out at least for this week.

The only other Bengals player not to practice on Friday was outside linebacker James Harrison (illness). He is probable for Sunday.

Outside linebacker Vontaze Burfict (thigh), defensive end Wallace Gilberry (knee), running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis (illness), safety George Iloka (concussion), wideout Marvin Jones (shoulder) and offensive guard Kevin Zeitler (foot) are also probable for the Pittsburgh game after fully practicing Friday.
