NFL Week 4 Bengals vs Dolphins: Monday practice and injury report

New, comments

Wow, the Dolphins' injury report is long! The Bengals' injury report featured many names, too, but, Cincinnati should be in better shape than Miami on Thursday night.

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Today's Bengals practice wasn't open to the media, and likely wasn't much of a practice at all. But, the team has already released its first injury report for the Thursday Night Football matchup with the Dolphins.

Derron Smith and Dre Kirkpatrick are both on the report as non participants and a host of Bengals were limited including two other members of the secondary in George Iloka and Shawn Williams. Williams left the game against the Broncos with a knee injury, Smith left with a chest injury and Kirkpatrick left the game with what was being called a calf injury, but he now listed as a hamstring injury (something that also bothered him last week) but also returned to Sunday's game.

Eifert was again limited, per the report, and today, Marvin Lewis said, "he's close" to returning. When asked if the short turnaround this week would impact his return, Lewis answered, "no."

Pat Sims is again on the report and the injury is listed as an achilles again after also being called a heel and ankle injury in past weeks. Sims has been on the injury report every week so far, but hasn't missed a game.

Adam Jones left Sunday's game with an injury but he was not listed on the report, so it looks like he is now fine. Vontaze Burfict isn't officially on the roster yet, though he has rejoined team activities through a roster exemption, so he doesn't need to be listed on the report to indicate his practice status, yet.

The Dolphins are a bit of a mess on the injury front (more on that here). They have many starters listed as non-participants on today's report and seem to have many players who will be sitting out on Thursday.
