When a coach shows sniper videos to his team, referencing the point of focus, there's no shot in hell that those players are going to have the day off for a holiday like Thanksgiving. Though the schedule allows for a free afternoon, the Cincinnati Bengals did practice on Thursday.
Andrew Hawkins missed his third practice and second this week with a knee he suffered during practice last week. Tight end Richard Quinn also missed practice on Thursday, downgraded from limited participation on Wednesday.
Adam Jones, how missed practice on Wednesday, was limited on Thursday, as were center Jeff Faine and Marvin Jones.
Safety Reggie Nelson and cornerback Terence Newman were full-go for a second practice.
