First-Round Rookie CB Dre Kirkpatrick Active For The First Time This Year

He's active.

You know whom I'm talking about. First-round pick cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick will make his NFL debut this Sunday against Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos, finally recovering from an injured knee that dates back before training camp this year.

Yet he's not the only rookie making his NFL debut. Recently promoted linebacker Emmanuel Lamur, replacing Dontay Moch who went on IR late this week, will also make his NFL debut.

If you're looking for them on the television or during the game, Kirkpatrick is No. 27 and Lamur is No. 59.

Inactive this week for the Cincinnati Bengals includes the injured wide receiver Marvin Jones, who hurt a knee against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week Seven. Joining him is wide receiver Ryan Whalen, cornerback Jason Allen, linebacker Roddrick Muckelroy, defensive tackle Brandon Thompson, tight end Richard Quinn and safety George Iloka.

Of note the interesting inactive is Whalen, who not only replaced Jones during the last game and being the second-most targeted receiver, leaving only five receivers active on Sunday.

Inactive for the Denver Broncos includes former Bengals wide receiver Andre Caldwell, quarterback Caleb Hanie, cornerback Tracy Porter, running back Knowshon Moreno, center C.J. Davis, tight end Julius Thomas and defensive tackle Sealver Siliga.
