While Levi Jones will miss his fifth straight game, the Bengals will play Sunday's game relatively healthier than they've played much of the season -- relative to players not on Injured Reserve. Palmer will be sidelined again; we're far more convinced that even though he's throwing, he won't play against the Chiefs during the season finale. Kenny Watson is questionable with a problematic hamstring that's sidelined him the past two games; after missing Wednesday's practice, Watson was limited Thursday and fully on Friday.
The Bengals should get Chinedum Ndukwe back, along with Ben Utecht and Chris Perry. Stacy Andrews and Eric Ghiaciuc sat once during the week due to an illness while Chad Johnson was a late entry with a hamstring on Friday.
The Browns will be without tight end Kellen Winslow, and Shaun Smith is listed as doubtful. Cleveland also has several key players listed as questionable; only Joshua Cribbs practiced fully this week.
