The Bengals are pretty banged up as they head into their Week 12 matchup against the Cleveland Browns. This game is just as, or more, important than their Week 11 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Now the Bengals are the team with their backs against the Ball and they need to do everything they can in the next six weeks to stay in the playoff picture.
The Bengals had quite a few players on their injury/practice report on Wednesday but the good news is A.J. Green, who sat out against the Ravens, returned to practice for the first time since injuring his knee in Week 10 against the Steelers. Quarterback Andy Dalton was also limited in practice and Carlos Dunlap, the team's best pass rusher, didn't practice at all.
For the Browns, running back Peyton Hillis and safety T.J. Ward didn't practice and have already been ruled out of their Week 12 matchup against the Bengals while running back Montario Hardesty was limited.
