As expected, Bengals defensive lineman Jonathan Fanene will be out this Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens. Some reports indicate he'll be out as much as five weeks, while others report that a more likely number is two weeks. Either way, he's not helping the Bengals this weekend.
Keith Rivers and Brian Leonard are both listed as questionable with foot injuries. Leonard's case being the most impressive, going from thinking he suffered a career-ending injury against the Cowboys during the preseason Hall of Fame game to maybe missing one regular season game? Impressive, indeed.
Cedric Benson (shoulder), Brandon Ghee (head) and Andre Caldwell (groin) are listed as probable. Ghee is also another impressive rehabilitation story, suffering a hella-violent helmet-to-helmet collision against the Bills in the preseason.
For Baltimore, offensive tackle Jared Gaither (back) and wide receiver Donte Stallworth (foot) are both out. Terrence Cody (knee), Todd Heap (shoulder), Ray Lewis (foot), Le'Ron McClain (knee), Tavares Gooden (thigh) and Jarret Johnson (back) are listed as questionable. Wide receivers Anquan Boldin (thigh) and Marcus Smith (knee) are listed as probable.
