Cincinnati will be missing left tackle Levi Jones and left guard Andrew Whitworth for a game in Pittsburgh on Thursday night because of injuries, leaving them shorthanded on the offensive line.
Chatman was hit hard and tackled around the neck by safety Quintin Mikell after he made a catch, causing him to fumble. Chatman stayed down and was carted off the field as a precaution. X-rays were normal, and he had full movement in his arms and legs. The team later said he had pinched a nerve.
Chatman was the Bengals' No. 3 receiver. He had 21 catches -- tied with tight end Reggie Kelly for third on the team -- for 194 yards. He also returned punts, a job that will revert to receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh.
