Prior to Sunday's game, the Cincinnati Bengals had already declared linebacker Vontaze Burfict at out. This will be the sixth consecutive game that Cincinnati's defense will be without their Pro Bowl linebacker, who had his knee scoped following Cincinnati's win over Baltimore in late October.

Defensive end Margus Hunt, listed as doubtful Friday, is also out for a third-straight game. He continues to recover from an ankle injury that he suffered in week 11. Rookie Will Clarke is once again active, as are both Brandon Thompson and Devon Still.

Also out is rookie wide receiver James Wright, fresh off his breakout performance against the Buccaneers last week. Wright sat during all three practices with a knee injury.

The recently-signed offensive tackle, Eric Winston, is active in a reserve role.
