Illness is once again affecting the Cincinnati Bengals ahead of a big matchup. With the AFC North on the line Sunday at Pittsburgh, several players are sick to the point they can't practice, the most notable of which being cornerback Terence Newman.
Per Coley Harvey, Newman is heading home after another day of not practicing due to illness, which means he hasn't practiced all week. Making matters worse is that he was benched Monday night against the Broncos after being torched by Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas.
It looks safe to say Newman is questionable to play Sunday night, leaving Leon Hall, Adam Jones and Dre Kirkpatrick as the primary corners with Darqueze Dennard coming off the bench.
Andy Dalton was able to practice Friday after missing time with an illness as well. A.J. Green was on the field as well for the second day in a row after missing Wednesday. Both look probable to play Sunday night.
