The Bengals saw nearly everyone upgraded on the injury report on Thursday. Of those who didn't practice at all on Wednesday, Russell Bodine was a full participant , Clint Boling was limited, Pat Sims was a full participant, Domata Peko and Andrew Whitworth returned from their rest days, and Vontaze Burfict was a full participant after leaving Wednesday's practice with an ankle injury.
Tyler Eifert originally was reported by Bengals.com's Geoff Hobson as being a full participant on Thursday, which would have been his first full practice of the 2016 season, but, the Bengals listed him as limited. It turns out that he took team snaps, practiced in 11-on-11 drills, but, was still limited. That simply means he didn't take part in 100% of practice. Eifert says he's good to go for Sunday, but it's unclear if the Bengals' coaches agree. We'll find out tomorrow what his game status is after the Bengals' walkthrough.
#Bengals list Eifert as limited, which just means less than 100 percent of team snaps. Key piece was Eifert did take team snaps for 1st time— Jay Morrison (@JayMorrisonCMG) October 20, 2016
The only addition to the Bengals' Thursday injury report was an unsurprising one as wide receiver James Wright was a non-participant. Wright has been sitting out at least one day per week. It's believed to be a precautionary measure to keep his surgically repaired knee stable.
The Browns' injury report saw no changes from yesterday and that means for the second straight day starters Terrelle Pryor, Joe Haden and Joe Thomas all didn't practice. If any of those three players don't play on Sunday, it would be a big loss for the Browns.
