The biggest player the Bengals will be without is wide receiver Marvin Jones, though tight end Tyler Eifert is also out, but because he's on IR-recall, he doesn't have to be designated a gameday inactive. Because he was deactivated this week and Cincinnati chose not to sign another player, they only had to deactivate six player to get down to the 46-man gameday roster.

This also means that Pro Bowl linebacker Vontaze Burfict is active after being cleared to play earlier on Sunday. Defensive tackle Devon Still will also play today after being called up from the practice squad this week.His rise from there to the active roster in the midst of his daughter's pediatric cancer is truly inspiring to watch.
