Cincinnati Bengals QB Brandon Allen (knee) didn't practice Saturday, Dec. 19, and has been ruled out of the Week 15 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers Monday, Dec. 21.
Huddle Up: Allen wouldn't have been a fantasy option, anyway, especially with the difficult matchup. QB Ryan Finley is likely to start in his place, but fantasy managers shouldn't be giving him any consideration in anything other than the deepest of 2-QB leagues.

Huddle Up: Ryan Finley is taking the first-team QB reps Thursday, but there is still a ways to go with Thursday being Cincy's first practice of the week.
