Bengals vs. Chargers Inactive List

The Cincinnati Bengals and San Diego Chargers have announced their inactive list with no major surprises.

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

Bengals cornerback Terence Newman won't play this weekend, recovering from a sprained MCL that he suffered against the Indianapolis Colts in week 14. He's missed every game since and only began practicing on Friday of this week. However, there's enough optimism that if the Bengals advance to the division round, he could play.

Second-year cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick, selected in the first round of the 2012 NFL draft, is expected to start opposite of Adam Jones.

Tight ends Tyler Eifert and Jermaine Gresham are a go; Eifert is recovering from a neck injury that he sustained in week 16 while Gresham has been dealing with a hamstring. Both practiced on Friday and entered the weekend as questionable.

As for the other six inactives, no surprises:


CB Terence Newman
RB Rex Burkhead
TE Kevin Brock
WR Ryan Whalen
WR Dane Sanzenbacher
OT Tanner Hawkinson
DT Ogemdi Nwagbuo


NT Sean Lissemore
SS Brandon Taylor
WR Lavelle Hawkins
CB Marcus Cromartie
OT Kenny Wiggins
OG Steve Schilling
QB Brad Sorensen
