CINCINNATI (AP) — Hines Ward was Tyler Boyd's favorite Steelers player while he grew up in Clairton Jordan Evans Jersey , Pennsylvania. He loved how No. 86 made the tough catches in the biggest games and helped Pittsburgh win two Super Bowls during his 14 seasons."He was my guy," the Bengals receiver said. "Everything about him was good. He was quick, aggressive, he was smart, just a guy that everyone looked up to in the Pittsburgh area."Boyd got to know the Steelers when he went to Pitt, which shares Heinz Field with the Steelers. Instead of being drafted by them in 2016, he wound up going to the rival Cincinnati Bengals, who were looking for a slot receiver to complement A.J. Green. Boyd immediately redirected his goal toward beating his beloved black-and-gold team. So far, he's 0-for-4.The Bengals (4-1) have dropped six straight to the Steelers (2-2-1) Preston Brown Jersey , a streak that's the talk of the town as Pittsburgh arrives for a game Sunday at Paul Brown Stadium. Boyd has played in three of the games. All three times, he has walked off the field watching thousands of Steelers fans twirl their Terrible Towels — a scene he once enjoyed."I haven't beaten them once, so that would mean everything to me," Boyd said. "Just with all my friends and family and fans coming to watch, I can start bragging a little and talk a little noise and stuff."So far, there's been little to talk about.Boyd had his best game against the Steelers as a rookie. He caught six passes for 78 yards in the second game of the season, a 24-16 loss in his return to Heinz Field. He also had a decisive fumble. He caught a pass at the Pittsburgh 33-yard line and was stripped by James Harrison. Pittsburgh recovered with 1:50 left, ending the Bengals' comeback attempt.Boyd had two catches for 13 yards in the rematch at Paul Brown Stadium, a 24-20 Steelers win .Last year Ryan Glasgow Jersey , Boyd suffered a knee injury and missed a 29-14 loss at Pittsburgh . He had two catches for 15 yards in a 23-20 loss to the Steelers at Paul Brown Stadium. Thousands of Steelers fans twirled their towels as Pittsburgh ran off the field after Chris Boswell kicked a 38-yard field goal on the final play.The scene was familiar to Boyd, who attended a handful of Steelers games as a youth."They were all loud and crazy, so I'm expecting that," Boyd said. "But a lot of games get like that at some point in the game. I think we'll do a better job of keeping them quiet this game."The Bengals are counting on significant contributions from Boyd, who is having his best season. He leads the team with 30 catches — Green is second with 26.Boyd knows many of the Steelers from his playing days at Pitt, when they used the same stadium."When we were at practice, me and James (Conner) always talked to (Mike) Tomlin and Le'Veon (Bell) and AB (Antonio Brown)," Boyd said. "I would ask AB how he would work a route in certain coverage, just little things like that."I had a good relationship with those guys when I was at Pitt. It's fun to play against them now."NOTES: Running back Giovani Bernard was ruled out Friday with a knee injury Jordan Evans Jersey , the second game in a row he'll miss. … Tight end Tyler Kroft also is out with a foot injury. … Center Billy Price will miss his fourth game with a partially torn ligament in his right foot. … Cornerback William Jackson (knee), receiver John Ross (groin) and offensive tackle Cedric Ogbuehi (wrist) are listed as questionable. Violations of the rules regarding injury reporting usually happen when a team conceals a player’s health issue. Rarely does anyone get in trouble for reporting a fake injury, or for exaggerating a mild one.The Steelers land in that unusual category, if Monday’s Antonio Brown bombshell is accurate (and there’s no reason to think it isn’t). So apart from the question of what the Steelers will do about Brown, it’s important to ask what the NFL will do about the Steelers.As one league source has observed, “overt lying” on the injury report is a much bigger problem than Brown’s antics, because shenanigans with the injury report speak to competitive issues, about which the league office should be very concerned. It’s unknown whether the league office actually is concerned or will take action; the NFL has not responded to an inquiry from PFT regarding the situation.Whatever happens and however it plays out, the Keith Butler/Tyler Eifert coverup suddenly pales in comparison to what apparently was a deliberate decision to hide the dysfunction by brushing off Brown’s absence from practice and from Sunday’s game as the product of an injury Hardy Nickerson Jersey , when in fact there was no injury — or at a minimum no injury that would keep Brown from playing.The motive for hiding the truth is obvious. The Steelers didn’t want yet another distraction or disruption as they faced a must-win game. And if word had emerged that Brown had: (1) thrown a football at Ben Roethlisberger; (2) stormed out of practice; and (3) not shown up for practice on Thursday or Friday, it would have been a HUGE distraction and disruption from preparations for Week 17.The huge distraction and disruption has now arrived, but the Steelers have nothing else to currently do. Coach Mike Tomlin will still have to address the situation, since his end-of-season press conference will happen on Wednesday.Unless he decides to not show up.
