Reggie Nelson back at practice, Leon Hall and Dre Kirkpatrick still out

US PRESSWIRE

When facing a quarterback like Tom Brady, it is probably a good idea to have all of your starters in the secondary on the field. It sounds like the Bengals are getting closer to that.

The Bengals secondary is getting healthier but is still not at full strength. Geoff Hobson reports that Reggie Nelson is back at practice but Leon Hall and Dre Kirkpatrick are still out.

The Bengals will be facing the 10th ranked offense in the NFL on Sunday. On top of that, they have the always dangerous Tom Brady slinging the ball for the Patriots. Needless to say, the more 100% this secondary is, the better we may fare against the Pats passing offense.

Dre Kirkpatrick was limited in practice last Friday so there is hope he can also return to the lineup soon. Leon Hall would be sorely missed if he can not play.
