The Bengals will likely be without several starters on both sides of the ball when they take on the Colts in Week 7. Wide receiver A.J. Green was not present for Friday's practice, marking that the third and final pre-Colts practice he's missed, meaning he's highly unlikely to play at Indianapolis.

Green is also expected to see a foot specialist Friday, though the belief is his toe injury just needs rest in order to heal, so he can play in Week 8 vs. the Ravens.

The Bengals will also likely be without starting linebackers Emmanuel Lamur and Rey Maualuga vs. the Colts. Both missed Friday in addition to the prior two days, and neither is expected to play in Week 7. Lamur is dealing with an injured shoulder, while Maualuga is battling a hamstring injury.

As for other injured Bengals, defensive tackle Brandon Thompson also missed Friday and is not expected to play this week, but hopes to return in Week 8 vs. Baltimore.

Starting right guard Kevin Zeitler was also able to practice Friday, a good sign he'll play this week for the first time since injuring his calf in Week 2.
