NFL Week 14 Bengals vs Browns: Wednesday injury report includes many starters

The Bengals continue to work through a variety of injuries, but it looks like Jake Fisher will be ready to play on Sunday against the Browns after suffering a minor knee injury on Sunday. A.J. Green's chances of playing in the Battle of Ohio are much lower.

The Bengals got to work on Wednesday to prepare for their matchup with the Browns, but plenty of players were sidelined during the session.

A.J. Green was on the rehab field and will likely spend another week on the bench when the Bengals travel to Cleveland. Also sitting out were Wallace Gilberry, Derron Smith and C.J. Uzomah who all missed last week's game against the Eagles. Russell Bodine also sat out with an illness and Domata Peko received a veteran's rest day.

James Wright, who left Sunday's game against the Eagles with a knee injury also didn't practice on Wednesday. His status will be interesting to monitor as the knee injured is the same one he had microfracture surgery on last August. Hopefully, this injury is nothing serious.

Limited in practice (as they have been for the past few weeks) were Brandon LaFell (knee) and Clint Boling (shoulder). Long snapper Clark Harris was also limited after missing the last two weeks with a groin injury that was suffered during the Bills game.

The good news from Wednesday was that Jake Fisher was a full participant in practice after leaving Sunday's game with a bruised knee. It looks like he should be good to go on Sunday, which he's already said he would be.

The Browns are pretty healthy coming off their bye week. Only backup tight end Randall Telfer and offensive tackle Joe Thomas missed practice and defensive back Jamar Taylor was limited. It looks like Joe Haden will play in his first game against the Bengals since 2014. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like he'll be going up against Green in this matchup.
