Bengals cornerback Adam Jones "will give it a shot"

David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports

The Cincinnati Bengals have some good news on their injury front with Adam Jones expected to "give it a shot" according to the NFL Network.

The mounting injuries in the Bengals secondary has been a growing concern as Sunday's game against Aaron Rodgers and the Packers passing game approached. Adam Jones, who was limited this week in practice with abdominal injury, was questionable on the team's injury report and opened a serious gap in the team's cornerback roster.

With Brandon Ghee (concussion) and Dre Kirkpatrick (hamstring) unlikely against the Packers, the Bengals were forced to sign cornerback Curtis Martin off the street and promote cornerback Chris Lewis-Harris off the team's practice squad.

However, Steve Wyche on the NFL Network reports that Jones "will give it a shot". Jones will be the team's third cornerback behind Leon Hall and Terence Newman. However, it appears unlikely that the Bengals will use Jones as a punt returner with his injury, electing to keep Jones on Cincinnati's defense instead.

Wyche added that Packers running back Eddie Lacy is extremely unlikely, despite being labeled as questionable after missing this week with a concussion.
