The Cincinnati Bengals have announced their inactives list for Sunday’s game against the Tennessee Titans for their Week 10 matchup. It includes the Bengals’ three injured players who were already expected to be out.

For Cincinnati, the following players are out:

  • Wide receiver Tyler Boyd
  • Defensive tackle Pat Sims
  • Cornerback Keivarae Russell
  • Safety Shawn Williams
  • Linebacker Kevin Minter
  • Offensive lineman Alex Redmond
  • Offensive lineman Christian Westerman

To the surprise of many, John Ross is active. The coaches have made it appear they didn’t feel Ross is far along enough to warrant playing over other healthy receivers, so seeing him be active today over Tyler Boyd, who wasn’t on the final injury report, is a pleasent surprise.

As expected, the Bengals are without Pat Sims and Kevin Minter, who were ruled out on Friday. Shawn Williams is also out after being listed as doubtful.

Vontaze Burfict will start in place of Minter at middle linebacker, while Vincent Rey will start at weakside linebacker. Clayton Fejedelem will start in place of Williams at safety. Andrew Billings will replace Pat Sims at defensive tackle. Joe Mixon gets another start at running back with Jeremy Hill on injured reserve.

  • Offensive lineman Quinton Spain
  • Quarterback Brandon Weeden
  • Wide receiver Darius Jennings
  • Cornerback Kalan Reed
  • Safety Curtis Riley
  • Linebacker Nate Palmer
  • Defensive lineman David King

The big question for Tennessee was the status of Delanie Walker, but he is active. The Bengals have struggled mightily against tight ends as of late, so even a hobble Walker would seemingly do a lot of damage.
