NFL Week 7: Bengals vs Browns Wednesday practice and injury report

New, comments

The Bengals had a number of players sit out of practice and Vontaze Burfict left early. But on the bright side, Tyler Eifert returned as a limited participant.

The Bengals had an eventful Wednesday. Tyler Eifert returned to practice after two weeks of sitting out and doing rehab work for a back injury he experienced while recovering from his ankle injury. He was limited in practice on Wednesday, but, it's great to have him back on the field.

The media only stays at practice for the first 30 minutes of the day, but toward the end of the session, word got out that Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict was carted off the field with an ankle injury. It appears the injury is very minor and Marvin Lewis wasn't concerned about his Sunday availability after practice.

Russell Bodine (ankle), Clint Boling (shoulder), Pat Sims (neck), Domata Peko (rest) and Andrew Whitworth (rest) all sat out during practice on Wednesday. It's unclear when Sims injured his neck, but he's been a frequent name on the injury report with different ailments on a near weekly basis. The prior injuries were to his foot, ankle and achilles. For Bodine, it's good news that he is out of a walking boot he was wearing earlier in the week, and did drills on the rehab field today. But, it's unclear right now if he'll play on Sunday. If he doesn't play, expect T.J. Johnson to start in his place.

For the Browns, a slew of starters didn't practice including Joe Haden, Terrelle Pryor and Joe Thomas. Haden didn't play in either of the Bengals vs Browns games last year and he always is a tough matchup for A.J. Green (and has been since college). If he doesn't play, that would be a big loss for the Browns, the same goes of Pryor, the team's leading receiver.

Here's the Wednesday practice and injury report for both teams.
