S Chris Crocker Sits On Thursday

For those of you worried about seeing a repeat performance from Chris Crocker this weekend in Houston, you might not have to. After being limited on Wednesday and missing work on Tuesday, Crocker sat during practice due to an injury against the Baltimore Ravens last Sunday.

Though he's spoke with confidence that he'll play this weekend against the Texans, Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis offered only a "we'll see."


Wednesday Update: Green-Ellis Back, Gilberry Sits

In a shortened practice week due to a Saturday game, the Bengals got a bit of good news on Wednesday. According to multiple reports, starting running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis returned to practice for the first time since injuring his hamstring on Sunday. Green-Ellis sustained the injury during warm-ups before the game against the Ravens and the team has been cautious with him since.

On another note, defensive end Wallace Gilberry sat out Wednesday's practice with an unspecified injury, which could hurt the Bengals' deep defensive line rotation if he's unable to go on Saturday. Safety Chris Crocker barely participated, just taking part of stretching and nothing more. Crocker sustained an injury in the game versus the Ravens.

Per Joe Reedy of The Cincinnati Enquirer, the Bengals are practicing at the University of Cincinnati's indoor facility once again on Wednesday.

Reed is a strong pass rusher that's missed several games due to a Thanksgiving groin injury against the Lions.


Green-Ellis Sits Out Of Tuesday's Practice

Last Sunday while getting ready for the Baltimore Ravens, the Cincinnati Bengals' starting running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis sustained a hamstring injury in pre-game warm-ups and was held out of the contest. It was an unfortunate surprise, though the Bengals' coaching staff was wise to sit Green-Ellis and not have him further the injury. Unfortunately, hamstring injuries tend to be nagging ones and that appears to be the case with "The Law Firm".

Per Joe Reedy of The Cincinnati Enquirer, Green-Ellis was held out of Tuesday's practice, though he did some running on the side field. It appears that the Bengals are going easy on him with the team headed to Houston to play the Texans this Saturday. When asked by reporters about Green-Ellis' status for Saturday's game, Lewis was his usual coy self and said "He'll be fine--at some point". Um...okay.

Also sitting out of practice were safeties Taylor Mays and Chris Crocker, who sustained injuries in the game against the Ravens.
