The Bengals' injury report featured 10 players for the opening practice in preparation for the Broncos in Week 3. But, the Broncos' injury report was even more crowded with 13 names.
Tyler Eifert returned, getting in a limited session and though Andy Dalton was seen limping in the locker room on Sunday, he was a full participant, but on the injury report with a hip issue.
Darqueze Dennard was back on the injury report today after returning to play his first game since November 2015 on Sunday. He apparently suffered a hamstring issue on Sunday that's minor enough that he was able to practice in limited fashion on Wednesday. The same goes for Dre Kirkpatrick. But back to Dennard, he's now had a shoulder, knee and now hamstring injury all since November 2015. Hopefully, this injury isn't too serious and won't keep him off the field on gameday.
James Wright, who has been skipping some practices to rest his surgically repaired knee, was limited on Wednesday as well. And, Eric Winston, who didn't play on Sunday has an injured back and sat out on Wednesday. Pat Sims, who had a great game on Sunday, was limited with a heel injury. He had an Achilles' injury in Week 1, an ankle in Week 2 and now a heel in Week 3. Still, he hasn't missed a game.
As for the non-injured missing players, A.J. Green's wife is in labor and expecting a baby any minute (if it hasn't been born already)! And, Andrew Whitworth had a veteran's rest day.
The Broncos have many injured players as well. Four players didn't practice including Donald Stephenson and DeMarcus Ware who are both expected to be out this week. Three additional players were limited and six players fully practiced as they work their way back from injuries, including wide receiver Demaryius Thomas, who hasn't missed any time but is dealing with a hip injury.
