Week 13 Cincinnati Bengals at Cleveland Browns: Final practice and injury report features Tyler Eifert as doubtful

New, comments

The only doubtful player for Sunday is a major offensive contributor in Tyler Eifert.

Jason Bridge-USA TODAY Sports

The Cincinnati Bengals have listed Tyler Eifert as doubtful to play on Sunday in the team's rematch with the Browns in Cleveland.

George Iloka, Leon Hall and Adam Jones are all questionable. If two out of the three of them are unable to play on Sunday that could spell trouble for a depleted Bengals' secondary. Making matters worse for the secondary is that Dre Kirkpatrick joined the team's injury report on Friday with an ankle injury. He did get in a partial practice on Friday and is listed as probable for Sunday. Still, it's clear the Cincinnati secondary is dealing with a variety of bumps and bruises heading into the final stretch of the schedule.

Vontaze Burfict was a full participant on Friday and the Bengals have listed both Burfict and fellow linebacker Emmanuel Lamur, who injured his ankle in last Sunday's game against the Rams, as probable for this Sunday.

The Browns have ruled out Joe Haden, Andrew Hawkins, Taylor Gabriel and Justin Gilbert, all four of whom are currently in the NFL's concussion protocol. Starting right defensive end Randy Starks, starting outside linebacker Nate Orchard and starting left guard Joel Bitonio are questionable for Sunday after being limited in practice all week.
