The Bengals have been dealing with illnesses to various players for nearly a month now, but they may have a solution to help combat that ahead of their wild-card playoff game.
Per Butch Hobson, the Bengals will be practicing inside the UC Bearcats' practice bubble all three days this week in preparation for Sunday's date with the Colts. That will help keep players from getting sick due to the weather, something that's plagued the Bengals for years now.
This year, Andy Dalton came down with the flu prior to the team's Week 13 win at Tampa Bay. He got sick again ahead of the team's Week 16 win over Denver, and missed one practice last week due to illness.
Several players came down with a bug last week as well, and cornerback Terence Newman was sick enough that he was held out at Pittsburgh.
Hopefully, we won't hear of any bugs this week.
