Cincinnati Bengals defensive lineman D.J. Reader has not played since he was injured in Week 3 against the New York Jets. Now, as Week 11 approaches, the Bengals got some great news on the 28-year-old defensive tackle.

D.J. Reader Injury Update

Heach coach Zac Taylor announced on Friday that Reader is all healed up and will be activated and play this week against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Reader will be a welcomed addition back to a defense that ranks No. 17 in opponent rushing yards. While Reader hadn't recorded a sack, he was also doing a solid job of getting to the quarterback early on, recording 3 QB hits in the little more than two games he played in early on this season.

The Bengals have a crucial divisional matchup in Week 11, and are currently 3.5-point road favorites against the Steelers, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest NFL odds.
