The Bengals had six injured players sitting out of practice on Wednesday for their first practice of the week in preparation for Sunday's game in Cleveland.
The good news is Jeremy Hill and Vontaze Burfict who both left in the fourth quarter against the Rams both fully practiced on Wednesday.
Tyler Eifert, Emmanuel Lamur and Chris Lewis-Harris all left Sunday's game too and sat out on Wednesday. Lamur was reportedly on the rehab field though, which is encouraging.
Adam Jones who missed the Week 11 game with the Cardinals was resting his foot on Wednesday as he sat out of practice and Leon Hall who has been on and off the injury report with a back injury also didn't practice on Wednesday. The rest of the week will be more indicative of who will play on Sunday in Cleveland.
Just like the last time the Bengals played the Browns in Week 9, the Browns have a number of players in the concussion protocol including former Bengals wide receiver Andrew Hawkins and cornerback Joe Haden. They have both been in the concussion protocol for a number of weeks Kick returner and cornerback Justin Gilbert also experienced a concussion during a return on Monday night. He has been a healthy scratch on the Browns' inactive list in past weeks this season.
