Bengals CB Terence Newman listed as doubtful, Chargers RB Ryan Mathews as probable

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

The Cincinnati Bengals may not have Terence Newman, who has been rehabilitating a strained MCL in his knee since week 14. Four others are questionable.

The Cincinnati Bengals are getting healthier as they approach their first-round game against the San Diego Chargers this Sunday. Everyone on the team's injury report was a full participant, save for Terence Newman, who practiced for the first time since week 14 when the Bengals hosted Indianapolis. Newman is listed as doubtful for this weekend.

Center Kyle Cook (foot), defensive end Wallace Gilberry (concussion) and tight ends Tyler Eifert (neck) and Jermaine Gresham (hamstring) were full participants on Friday, but listed as questionable. We expect they'll be available this Sunday.

Everyone else is listed as probable as full participants this week, including Anthony Collins who sat on Wednesday and Thursday with an ankle ankle. Andre Smith and Andrew Whitworth, who sat on Wednesday and were limited on Thursday, were full participants Friday when the team practiced indoors at the University of Cincinnati.

As for the Chargers, running back Ryan Mathews is probable. Mathews didn't practice on Wednesday and Thursday but returned in a limited fashion on Friday. Eddie Royal (toe) is questionable, but expected to play.
