NFL Week 14 Bengals vs Browns: Friday injury report includes 5 Bengals ruled out

The banged up Bengals head to Cleveland to take on a healthy 0-12 Browns team that's seeking its first win of the year.

The Bengals have ruled out five players for Sunday's game against the Browns. That's the most players who have been ruled out for any game this year and it will likely clear the way for some typically inactive players to be on the gameday roster come Sunday.

A.J. Green is among the ruled out players and we'll have to wait at least one more week to see his return from a hamstring injury suffered in Week 11.

The Browns have a very different look to their injury report as no one is expected to miss Sunday's game and all 53 players should be healthy enough to play. That includes Joe Haden who hasn't played against the Bengals since 2014 due to a string of injuries.

Long snapper Clark Harris practiced fully for the first time since injuring his groin against the Bills and it seems possible that he will play on Sunday. If Harris is good to go, the Bengals may waive backup long snapper Tyler Ott before the game and activate a practice squad wide receiver to the roster. With both A.J. Green and James Wright out for Sunday's game, the Bengals are down to four healthy receivers. Jake Kumerow or Alonzo Russell may get the chance to step up in the coming weeks and see the field in an NFL game for the first time in the regular season.
