Bengals vs Cowboys: Wednesday practice and injury report includes Tyler Eifert's new injury

The Bengals shared good and bad news on Wednesday's injury report.

The Bengals have released their first injury report leading up to Sunday's game against the Cowboys and with it, news broke that Tyler Eifert is now dealing with a back injury in addition to his ankle injury. (Here's everything we know about that.)

Eifert was not at practice on Wednesday and it now seems unlikely that he will play on Sunday against the Cowboys. ESPN's Bob Holtzman has reported as much.

On defense, there was good news as cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick returned to practice and practiced fully after missing Thursday's game against the Dolphins. Back on offense, Clint Boling was limited after experiencing a shoulder injury against the Dolphins. Rex Burkhead left that game with a hamstring injury and was also limited. A few other Bengals were also limited on Wednesday in practice, including Jake Fisher with a back injury, Jeremy Hill with a chest injury, Shawn Williams with a thigh injury and James Wright, also with a thigh injury.

For the Cowboys, Dan Bailey, Lance Dunbar, Chaz Green and Dez Bryant all remained off the field. Jerry Jones said on Tuesday that Bryant, Bailey and Orlando Scandrick (who was limited) are likely to play after missing time the past few weeks.

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