NFL Week 8: Bengals vs Redskins Thursday practice and injury report

The Bengals are incredibly healthy heading into Sunday's game in London.

Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

It looks like the Bengals will have all 53 players on the roster available for the second week in a row, forcing the team to list seven healthy scratches on Sunday morning before the Bengals vs Redskins game in London. What a good problem to have!

Andrew Whitworth has cleared the NFL's concussion protocol and is traveling to London with the team. He's expected to start on Sunday. Vontaze Burfict got Thursday off, as did James Wright. Neither are expected to sit on Sunday.

For the Redskins, Matt Jones hasn't practiced this week and it seems Chris Thompson will be the starting running back on Sunday. Though, that's not yet completely determined. Josh Norman and Jordan Reed both traveled with the team to London and were limited while dealing with concussions on Wednesday and Thursday. If either were to miss the game, that would be a big advantage for the Bengals.

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