Week 13 Cincinnati Bengals at Cleveland Browns: Thursday official practice and injury report

New, comments

Which injured Bengals and Browns are looking likely to play (or not play) on Sunday as the week winds downs?

Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

The Bengals are in the midst of their most injured week of the 2015 season. The team has yet to have more than two starters out in any game this season, but that could change on Sunday in Cleveland.

George Iloka went from being a limited participant in Wednesday's practice to not practicing on Thursday and Tyler Eifert, Leon Hall, and Adam Jones all sat out for the second day in a row due to injuries. Hall has been on and off the injury report with some frequency this season, but only missed the Week 6 matchup in Buffalo with a back injury. It's unclear if his current back injury is the same one that was bothering him earlier in the season. Eifert experienced a stinger on Sunday and according to Geoff Hobson, he's "questionable, at best" for the Browns game. For Jones, it's the same foot injury that held him out of the Cardinals game that is keeping him out of practice this week.

Vontaze Burfict also rejoined the injury report on Thursday after practicing on Wednesday. He may have just been getting some extra rest on his knee as he's been on the injury report almost weekly since returning from the PUP list.

Thursday's practice is the most intensive practice of the week for the Bengals with Friday serving more as a walk through. We'll see tomorrow how the Bengals estimate the likeliness of each player to be active on Sunday.

The Browns' injury report didn't change at all from Wednesday to Thursday. It's expected that all four of the Browns players in the concussion protocol will not play on Sunday. That includes Joe Haden, Andrew Hawkins, Taylor Gabriel and the most recently concussed Browns player, Justin Gilbert.
