Kirkpatrick has yet to practice after injuring his hamstring in Saturday's practice.

The Bengals got great news on the injury front when Geno Atkins came off the PUP list. Unfortunately, one person who's constantly on some kind of injury list is cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick.

The third-year corner from Alabama has yet to practice after injuring his hamstring in Saturday's practice, and he won't be on the field Wednesday after an off-day Tuesday. He's missed much of his first two training camps and preseasons due to various injuries, and he's not off to a good start in his third one.

As for other players sitting out Wednesday, defensive tackle Domata Peko is getting a veteran's rest day off. Other players not practicing include Andrew Whitworth (calf), Jermaine Gresham (back), Zach Minter (back),  Ryan Whalen (hamstring). Marvin Jones (ankle) and AJ McCarron (shoulder).

It's believed that Gresham's injury is the only serious one. He reportedly had hernia surgery this offseason, and it sounds like he's still recovering from it.
