Through the first 13 games this season, the Cincinnati Bengals have seen their share of injuries. The team has placed three safeties, four cornerback backs and four defensive linemen -- all of whom how have starts in the NFL careers -- on Injured Reserve. Starting cornerback Johnathan Joseph has missed time this year with a high ankle sprain. Starting safety Roy Williams has missed four games this year due to an injury. Keith Rivers and Pat Sims have spent all week limited in practice with respective injuries and Jonathan Wade, the cornerback signed off the street several weeks ago to replace Joseph in the starting line up, is listed as doubtful against the Browns with a knee injury.
And that's just the team's defense.
On Sunday, the Bengals will have Joseph, along with Leon Hall for only the second time since November 21, 2010. Terrell Owens, Chad Ochocinco, Keith Rivers and Pat Sims are active and expected to start. Here is Sunday's Inactive List:
|QB Dan LeFevour (Third QB)||QB Jake Delhomme (Third QB)|
