New, comment

The Bengals are very healthy coming into Week 7 with all seven of their inactive players healthy scratches. The Browns are a MASH unit.

The Cincinnati Bengals have announced their gameday inactives for Week 7.

They are:

  • Cornerback Chykie Brown
  • Cornerback KeiVarae Russell
  • Offensive lineman Christian Westerman
  • Wide receiver Cody Core
  • Quarterback Jeff Driskel
  • Defensive lineman DeShawn Williams
  • Cornerback Chris Lewis-Harris.

The real news is Pro Bowl tight end Tyler Eifert is active today. This will be his 2016 debut and the first time he’ll play in an NFL game of any kind since the 2016 Pro Bowl.

Eifert has been recovering from offseason ankle surgery, as well as a back injury suffered in practice leading up to Week 5 that sidelined him for the past two games. He’ll be a huge boost to a Bengals offense that’s struggling to produce points, especially when it comes to converting red-zone chances into touchdowns.

For the Cleveland Browns, their inactives are cornerback Joe Haden, wide receiver Corey Coleman, defensive back Marcus Burley, quarterback Josh McCown, fullback Dan Vitale, tight end Seth DeValve, and linebacker Corey Lemonier.

Despite being listed as questionable on the final injury report, Browns wide receiver Terrelle Pryor is active today. He is the Browns’ offense right now, so this is big news for Cleveland.

Don’t expect Eifert to be 100 percent on Sunday.

The same goes for Pryor:
