Bengals vs Jets: Final injury report for Week 1

New, comments

The Bengals should have 51/53 players on the roster available for Sunday's game. The Jets will have a few more banged up players to consider sitting.

Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

The Bengals and Jets have released their final injury reports for the regular season opener on Sunday. On the Bengals' end Tyler Eifert was ruled out as expected and cornerback Darqueze Dennard is doubtful.

On the Jets' side, three linebackers make the report as starter Jordan Jenkins is doubtful while Bruce Carter and David Harris are both questionable. That's a few too many linebackers on the Week 1 injury report than you can be comfortable with if you're a Jets fan. Defensive back Darryl Roberts was ruled out, as was quarterback Bryce Petty, who would have likely been inactive anyway.

It seems the Bengals are the healthier team, which is surprising when you consider how banged up they were just two weeks ago and how many people were fretting over the players dropping on the field with frequency. The injury report of course doesn't take into consideration William Jackson III, Cedric Peerman, Marcus Hardison and Andrew Billings who are all on Injured/Reserve and ineligible to play, which also goes for Brandon Thompson who's on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

Here are the full injury reports for both teams heading into Sunday's matchup.
