Bengals cornerback Leon Hall, who sat on Wednesday with back issues, was the only player on Cincinnati's 53-man roster listed as questionable this weekend against the Buffalo Bills. According to early reports, Hall was expected to play however the team deactivated their veteran cornerback for the weekend. Common sense suggests that second-year corner Darqueze Dennard will take a majority of his snaps.
