The Bengals were happy to get cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick on the field tonight vs. Arizona, and Dre looks happy to be on the field. He's missed much of the preseason due to a hip injury, as well as a stomach virus that has affected several other players.
With Dre though, it's the same old story. He can't seem to stay healthy enough to get on the field consistently, because when he does, he's capable of making big plays and big hits like this one Ted Ginn Jr.
The Bengals like using Kirkpatrick at gunner on the punt unit, and you can see why. When he gets you in his sights with a straight line to you, game over.
With Darqueze Dennard and Lavelle Westbrooks not playing tonight, Krik figures to get a lot of playing time on defense and special teams.
