NFL Week 7: Bengals vs Browns Friday practice and injury report includes Eifert as questionable

New, comment

The Bengals are as healthy as they've been in 2016.

Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports

The Bengals could have all 53 players on the roster available to play on Sunday when the Browns come to town, but the same definitely won't be true for Cleveland.

Tyler Eifert is officially questionable, the best designation he's been given all season and it seems likely he could play on Sunday for the first time since the Pro Bowl in January.  The Bengals labeled Eifert as a full participant for Friday's walkthrough practice. Every other Bengals player is off the report, meaning they will all play. It's possible all seven of the Bengals' inactive players on Sunday will be healthy scratches.

For Cleveland, Joe Haden is doubtful, Terrelle Pryor is questionable and after not practicing on Wednesday or Thursday, Joe Thomas went full on Friday and will play on Sunday. It was assumed the Josh McCown would miss at least one more week after being limited all week and the Browns made that official, labeling him as out for Sunday. Rookie quarterback Cody Kessler will continue starting for the Browns.

Here's the Friday practice and injury report for both teams:
