The Cincinnati Bengals are banged up as they prepare for the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.
Starting cornerback Darqueze Dennard may very well be sitting this one out, as he’s now missed two-straight practices after being sidelined on Thursday. A knee injury continues to plague the starting cornerback, but the good news is William Jackson and Adam Jones are both practicing fully. Jones and Jackson missed Week 11 while Dennard started, so the script may get flipped in Week 12.
Vincent Rey and Shawn Williams also sat out again on Thursday, putting them in serious jeopardy of missing Sunday.
For the second-straight day, Clint Boling was limited with a hamstring injury, putting his status for Sunday in question. If he were to be inactive, TJ Johnson would likely start in his place.
As for the Browns, starting safety Jabrill Peppers was limited Thursday after sitting out Wednesday. Starting center JC Tretter was limited again, so he too is uncertain for Sunday.
