Dre Kirkpatrick and Clint Boling sit during practice

The Bengals are conducting their first practice in full pads, as well as the epic Oklahoma Drill that players and coaches are starting to care less for. We review a handful of injuries heading into Sunday's practice.

Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick, who tweaked his hamstring while covering A.J. Green during practice on Saturday, is joining the collection of injured players that remain on the team's PUP and NFI lists. The injury isn't believed to be serious but the team will take an overly cautious approach in July to limit long-term associations with a player dealing with durability questions.

Offensive guard Clint Boling is also sitting, according to reports. The team is rotating days off for Boling, who has only recently returned from a serious ACL injury last season.

Kirkpatrick and Boling are reportedly the only player that's currently not listed on one of the team's injury lists -- Active/Physically Unable to Perform and Active/Non-Football Injury List.

LT Andrew Whitworth (calf)
TE Jermaine Gresham (back)
DT Geno Atkins (knee)
LB Marquis Flowers (hamstring)
