Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Terence Newman remains on the mend, entering the second week of a recovery process that was prognosticated as a 1-3 week process. After suffering an MCL sprain against the Indianapolis Colts, Newman has been easing into a recovery that may force him to miss the rest of the regular season with Dre Kirkpatrick stepping into the role as starting cornerback. Newman sat on Wednesday during practice.
Joining Newman is linebacker James Harrison, who suffered a concussion in the first quarter against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Harrison missed the final three quarters and he's presumably undergoing concussion protocols. If he missed practice on Thursday, his availability against the Minnesota Vikings could be significantly jeopardized.
According to the beat writers monitoring the first 30 minutes of practice, Carlos Dunlap was also out during Wednesday's session.
Under the file of good news, Jermaine Gresham, who suffered a hip injury in the second half, practiced on Wednesday.
