Kicker Mike Nugent will assume punting duties for the rest of the game.

Huber already had dropped a snap on the team's first possession and was tackled at his own 1-yard line, which set up a Pittsburgh touchdown. On the Bengals' second possession, return man Cedric Peerman called for a fair catch inside his own 10-yard line.

The Steelers stormed out to a 21-0 lead after the Bengals punt coverage allowed Brown to gash them.
