In addition to the players mentioned earlier, the Bengals were without several other players who were dealing with injuries heading into their preseason opener vs. the Giants.
Defensive end Margus Hunt and rookie offensive tackle Jake Fisher did not play Friday night.
Second-round pick Jake Fisher not dressed tonight, but wasn't on the "not expected to play" list issued before the game.— Paul Dehner Jr. (@pauldehnerjr) August 15, 2015
Margus Hunt also in workout clothes. Doesn't appear he's playing tonight, either. Not a surprise in his case. Just got to practice this week— Coley Harvey (@ColeyHarvey) August 15, 2015
Hunt just returned to practice last week after missing the start of training camp with a back injury. It's unclear as to why fisher is being held out.
