The Bengals' Friday practice is more of a walkthrough this year than a real practice session, but following the last official practice of the week, the Bengals have submitted their injury report for this weekend's game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Though Adam Jones is listed as questionable, he'll almost certainly play on Sunday after two full practices on Thursday and Friday. He's also been posting workout videos all week and will be looking to help the Bengals get a win for his birthday, which was this week. On the flip side, rookie Marcus Hardison is listed as questionable and will almost definitely be inactive on Sunday, with more veteran players active along the defensive line.
The only player in doubt for the Bengals this Sunday is George Iloka. It's likely in Iloka's best interest to sit out and let his ankle injury fully recover before rejoining the Bengals once he's fully healthy. Playing through the injury again, as he's done the last two weeks since initially injuring it in Oakland, could lead to the injury being worsened. Plus, if he's not healthy, he won't be playing his best and he could negatively impact the team, as he felt he was last week when he removed himself from the game. If Iloka does sit, Shawn Williams will get his first start and Leon Hall will likely play some snaps at safety, a position he practiced in training camp.
