The Bengals got to work on Wednesday to prepare for the Eagles and many players were limited in their participation. Ryan Hewitt (foot), Clint Boling (shoulder), Wallace Gilberry (calf) and Brandon LaFell (knee) have all missed practices recently, though have not missed any games. All were once again limited on Wednesday.
New to the injury report was Carlos Dunlap who is dealing with a thigh injury, which limited him on Wednesday. Derron Smith is also dealing with a thigh injury, which caused him to miss Sunday's game in Baltimore. He was a non-participant and didn't even attend practice today.
Also not practicing was AJ McCarron who is listed with a neck injury, though, the report also says his reason for not participating was non-injury related.
A.J. Green was not participating, as expected, but did get some minimal work in on the rehab field. And, Andrew Whitworth took a veterans rest day.
Good news came with Tyler Kroft practicing, though in a limited role, after leaving Sunday's game with a concussion. Safety Shawn Williams, tight end C.J. Uzomah and long snapper Clark Harris were also limited after missing Sunday. The Bengals have not yet waived backup long snapper Tyler Ott, so it seems Harris' status for Week 13 is not yet clear.
Other good news is that Josh Shaw isn't on the report after leaving Sunday's game with an ankle injury, though, he did return to the game.
As for the Eagles, their injury report is quite light for Week 13. Three starters didn't practice in Ryan Mathews, Jordan Matthews and Halapoulivaati Vaitai, so we'll need to monitor their status this week. Jordan Matthews has said he expects to play after leaving the Eagles' Monday night game against the Packers with an ankle injury.
