Infirmary: Safety Taylor Mays And Cornerback Kelly Jennings Miss Wednesday's Practice

New, comments

We'll have a daily injury report later this afternoon/evening.

Along with guard Otis Hudson (knee) and linebacker Dontay Moch (foot), the Cincinnati Bengals are missing two of their newest members in the secondary. According to Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer, cornerback Kelly Jennings (acquired in a trade with the Seattle Seahawks for defensive lineman Clinton McDonald) and safety Taylor Mays (acquired via trade for the 49ers 2013 seventh round pick), aren't practicing on Wednesday.

Mays suffered a minor knee injury against the Indianapolis Colts during last Thursday's preseason finale. Jennings arrived in Cincinnati with a slight (and known) hamstring issue that could keep him out against the Cleveland Browns during the team's September 11 regular season opener.

Head coach Marvin Lewis has rarely allowed players that missed an entire week of practice to play during that week's game. If Jennings can't go, it would limit Cincinnati to three available cornerbacks with Leon Hall, Nate Clements and Morgan Trent. Now you see why they wanted to bring Rico Murray back.
