The usual suspects missed Thursdays practice, according to beat writers covering the team. Cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick and defensive end Carlos Dunlap have sat out this week knee injuries. Bernard Scott didn't practice on Thursday, but we're not sure if it's his hand or related to conditioning.
Kirkpatrick, Dunlap and Scott aren't expected to participate during Cincinnati's regular season opener against the Baltimore Ravens.
Also cornerback Jason Allen sat on Thursday with his quad possibly recovering.
