Jermaine Gresham Misses Practice On Thursday

The Cincinnati Bengals could be without tight end Jermaine Gresham, who is dealing with a hamstring. After being limited on Wednesday, Gresham sat during Thursday's practice.

If he's unable to go, the Bengals would have to start Orson Charles, who would be the team's fourth rookie in the starting lineup on Sunday -- including Marvin Jones -- and seventh starter with two years of experience or less; eight if we include Andrew Hawkins in three-wide formation.

If Gresham returns to practice on Friday, his chances to play on Sunday are significantly more optimistic. But if he sits, it's extremely unlikely he'll play Sunday, forcing the Bengals to start Charles.
