Cincinnati's most obvious players on this week's injury report will sit out against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. Otis Hudson (knee) and linebacker Dontay Moch (foot) actually aren't expected to play for several weeks. Cornerback Kelly Jennings joined the Bengals (via trade with Seattle) sporting a known hamstring issue and was still a long-shot to make Sunday's regular season opener. Safety Taylor Mays suffered a minor knee injury against the Indianapolis Colts last weekend; though major enough to force him to miss this week's practice and sit out Sunday's game.
Now the Bengals have to fall within the 46-man active roster for games, meaning that seven are out. Including the four injured players, safety Robert Sands, running back Cedric Peerman and wide receiver Ryan Whalen will miss Sunday's game.
