Carlos Dunlap Misses Second Straight Practice

Carlos Dunlap, who missed the first preseason game against the Detroit Lions, has missed his second straight practice since practicing on Monday. Dunlap is being counted on to provide a much needed pass rush this season. His 9.5 sacks last year not only led the team, but they were also the most be a rookie in Bengals team history. Geoff Hobson wrote,

"After practicing Monday, left end Carlos Dunlap (knee) has now missed two straight practices after missing all of the previous week. There's no sense of how serious it is."

With Dunlap being such a key contributor to the Bengals pass rush, the team can hardly afford to lose him to injury for an extended time. Hopefully the Bengals team physicians and coaching staff are just being cautious with his knee and not forcing him back into action. Most Bengal fans would agree that they would rather have Dunlap missing a few meaningless preseason games rather than missing a large chunk of the regular season.
