The Cincinnati Bengals will have most of their 53-man ready to rock against the Detroit Lions this Sunday.
The Bengals are no longer listing Joe Mixon (concussion), Dre Kirkpatrick (concussion), Darqueze Dennard (knee) or Shawn Williams (hamstring) on the injury report, so they are all ready to roll in Week 16.
Mixon is working his way back from a concussion suffered in Week 13. That kept him sidelined for the past two games, though he was able to practice in Week 15. Having him back will be a major boost for this stagnant offense, which scored a combined 14 points in the two games Mixon missed.
Starting safety George Iloka is questionable to play with a shoulder injury. If he’s out, Clayton Fejedelem figures to start in his place.
Starting left tackle Cedric Ogbuehi is out with a shoulder injury. It’s unclear who will start in his place since right tackle Andre Smith is on injured reserve.
As for the Lions, they ruled out starting center Travis Swanson. Starting guard T.J. Lang is doubtful, and starting right tackle Rick Wagner is questionable. That means Detroit could be down three starting lineman on Sunday.
