The Bengals have improved their health from where it was on Wednesday. During Thursday's practice, Cedric Benson, Manny Lawson, Frostee Rucker, Chris Crocker and Gibril Wilson, all of whom did not practice on Wednesday, returned to the practice field in a limited capacity and are all likely going to play on Sunday. Right tackle Andre Smith, who did practice on Wednesday, sat out of practice on Thursday along with Nate Clements, Brian Leonard and Chris Pressley.

While that may sound bad, the Rams are still in worst shape. For the second day in a row, neither quarterback Sam Bradford nor A.J. Feeley were able to practice. They were joined by James Hall and Chris Long.
