Cincinnati Bengals vs Cleveland Browns: Monday official practice and injury report

New, comments

The Bengals and Browns face off on Thursday during a short week. With that in mind, the Bengals' first practice of the week came on Monday, not Wednesday as is usually the case. The Browns actually didn't practice, but submitted an estimated injury report.

The Bengals held their first practice of the week on Monday to prepare for their Thursday Night Football matchup with the Cleveland Browns. Andre Smith has been diagnosed with a concussion and it's nearly impossible (and it should be fully impossible) to clear the NFL's concussion protocol by Thursday night after being placed in it on Sunday afternoon.

Rey Maualuga left Sunday's game early on with a calf injury and did not practice on Monday. Like Smith, his status for Thursday is very much in question. Carlos Dunlap who returned to the game on Sunday against the Steelers after leaving with what looked like a serious injury, practiced in a limited manner on Monday. It's worth noting, Monday's practice was likely a light one with the players coming off an intense game just 24 hours prior.

The Browns have a slew of players with concussions, which is actually pretty troubling for the team, not only because four players have concussions, but also because two are wide receivers and two are defensive backs, leaving those position groups thin. Josh McCown is also on the injury report with two injuries: a right shoulder injury suffered two weeks ago in St. Louis and a ribs injury, which was suffered yesterday against the Arizona Cardinals.

It's important to note, the Browns DID NOT PRACTICE today, at all. Their injury report is an estimation of who would have practiced, were the team to have practiced on Monday.
