Bengals at Broncos: Thursday official practice and injury report

New, comments

The Cincinnati Bengals will likely be missing a few starters for Monday night, but the injury report has shrunk since last week.

David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports

The Cincinnati Bengals had four players not participate in Thursday's practice session.

Safety George Iloka (groin), Tyler Eifert (concussion), linebacker Vontaze Burfict (knee/rest), and quarterback Andy Dalton (thumb) did not participate in Thursday's session, though Burfict is expected to play Monday night. Dalton is already ruled out for Monday, and it's yet to be determined whether Iloka or Eifert will play.

The good news is Thursday was fairly light on the injury report in terms of how many other players were on the list. Only three other players even made the report as tackle Jake Fisher (concussion) got a full session in. Linebackers Vincent Rey (hamstring) and Emmanuel Lamur (hamstring) got limited sessions in. As long as those three don't suffer any setbacks, they'll play Monday.

As for the Denver Broncos, they had a host of players on the Thursday injury report. Starting free safety Darian Stewart (hamstring) sat out while starting strong safety T.J. Ward (ankle) got a limited session in. Ward has missed the past three games with a left ankle injury he suffered in the Broncos’ November 29 victory over the New England Patriots. Stewart did not play in Sunday’s loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers because of his hamstring injury.

Quarterback Peyton Manning (foot) has already been ruled out for Sunday while Brock Osweiler (shoulder) practiced fully Thursday and will start Monday night. Running back C.J. Anderson (back/ankle) managed to get in a limited practice on Thursday after logging just four carries in Week 15. If he's still plagued by his injuries Monday night, Ronnie Hillman will continue to get he bulk of the carries.
