Cincinnati Bengals defensive end Carlos Dunlap will sit out of practice on Friday, according to Bengals.com's Geoff Hobson. This will be the third day in a row that Dunlap has missed practice this week after sitting out on Wednesday and Thursday and his status for Sunday's Week 12 game against the Browns is likely doubtful.

Dunlap injured his hamstring making his second sack against the Titans in Week 9. He didn't play the following week against the Steelers but did suit up against the Ravens in Week 11. 

It isn't all bad news, though. Both tight end Donald Lee and defensive tackle Domata Peko returned to practice on Friday which is a good signe, especially for Peko, that they'll suit up for Sunday's game. While Lee has missed the last two games with a foot injury, Jermaine Gresham has been healthy and Colin Cochart has played well as the team's second tight end. Peko, on the other hand, is a starter and leads all Bengals defensive linemen in tackles with 41. The fact that he returned to practice on Friday is a good sign.
