Bengals vs Broncos: Thursday practice and injury report for Week 3

New, comments

Four Bengals who were out or limited on Wednesday practiced fully on Thursday. Only one

The Bengals injury report is trending in the right direction as Sunday's game against the Broncos nears.

Tyler Eifert was limited for the second straight day, a good sign he had no setbacks after practicing yesterday. I would still assume he will not play in Week 3, but Week 4 could be a real possibility to see Eifert return for Thursday Night Football. If not, because of the quick turnaround, Week 5 should see Eifert return, assuming he doesn't have any setbacks between now and then.

Pat Sims was limited again with a heel injury today, he hasn't gotten in a full practice since the season began, but, that hasn't slowed him down in game action. He should be playing again on Sunday.

James Wright has been taking every Thursday off to rest his surgically repaired knee, which has undergone two surgeries in the last two years. He was limited yesterday, didn't practice today, but, there's no reason to believe, yet, that he won't play on Sunday. Eric Winston was also out today as he deals with a back injury.

Everyone else for the Bengals was a full go.

For the Broncos, linebacker Corey Nelson was upgraded on the injury report from a non-participant on Wednesday to limited on Thursday. The rest of Denver's injury report has stayed the same and it's safe to assume both Donald Stephenson and DeMarcus Ware will be ruled out tomorrow. Per Nicki Jhabvala of The Denver Post, Virgil Green will be a game time decision.
