The Bengals' Thursday injury report saw many players upgraded from their status on Wednesday.
AJ McCarron was a full go, as were Clint Boling, Brandon LaFell, Carlos Dunlap and even Tyler Kroft, who left Sunday's game with a concussion.
But with the good, came the bad news as Wallace Gilberry and C.J. Uzomah went from limited on Wednesday to non-participants on Thursday. James Wright, who wasn't on Wednesday's injury report, popped up with his hamstring injury again; he was limited in practice. Wright missed the Bengals' Week 10 game against the Giants with a hamstring injury and has been on the injury report with a hamstring or knee injury on-and-off all season. The knee injury isn't anything new, or an actual injury, but just the Bengals giving him extra rest due to having had microfracture surgery last August.
A.J. Green and Derron Smith were both on the rehab field and not participating in practice for the second day in a row. They're both unlikely to play on Sunday against the Eagles.
The Eagles got a bit healthier as Jordan Matthews was limited, but Ryan Mathews and Halapoulivaati Vaitai are still not practicing.
