New, comments

Dennard joins Alex Erickson as players to miss practice due to non-injury issues this week.

Thursday’s injury report was more of the same for the Bengals with one big exception in Carlos Dunlap.

The Pro Bowl defensive end got in a limited session after missing Wednesday with a hip injury. That would seem to indicate he’s trending toward playing Sunday, but it’s clear this is more than just a small issue since he’s gone two straight days without a full practice.

A.J. Green (toe), Dre Kirkpatrick (shoulder) and Nick Vigil (knee) also remained limited participants on Thursday. Green is probably going to play, but Vigil probably needs to get several full sessions in before he makes his return. He’s been out since Week 6, so he has a lot of rust on him at the moment.

Kirkpatrick missed Sunday with his injury, so seeing him limited for two straight sessions suggests he could draw the questionable tag for Week 13.

Darqeuze Dennard did not practice Thursday due to an illness. Alex Erickson missed Wednesday’s practice with a non-injury-related issue but returned for a full session on Thursday.

Cordy Glenn (back) remains out and looks unlikely for Sunday, while Jake Fisher (back) has been placed on injured reserve. That means newly-signed Andre Smith could be the starting left tackle on Sunday.

For the Broncos, it was mostly the same as they’ll have most of their 53-man roster able to play Sunday. The only real difference is wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders (heel) and defensive tackle Domata Peko (non-injury related) were limited after practicing in full on Wednesday.
