Injury Update: Guard Otis Hudson And Cornerback Kelly Jennings Return To Practice

New, comments

According to Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer, backup guard Otis Hudson and cornerback Kelly Jennings have returned to practice on Wednesday. Defensive end Robert Geathers is sitting, as are backup safety Taylor Mays and outside linebacker Dontay Moch.

Hudson, who was originally backing up right guard Bobbie Williams, suffered a knee injury early during training camp with initial estimates that he wouldn't return until after the October 23 bye week. If Hudson remained healthy, it's likely that he, not rookie Clint Boling, would have been the guard replacing Williams, who is currently serving a four-game suspension for violating the league's policy against performance enhancing substances.

The Bengals acquired Jennings via a trade with the Seahawks, in exchange for defensive tackle Clinton McDonald. The Bengals released Rico Murray Wednesday morning to make room for tight end, most likely comfortable with Jennings availability against the Denver Broncos this weekend.

Dontay Moch (foot) isn't expected to be out too much longer. The most recent expectation is that he could return by Cincinnati's home opener against the San Francisco 49ers on September 25. Safety Taylor Mays is believe to still be in the day-to-day category.
