A.J. Green will keep his word this week and will play against the Broncos this Sunday. He won’t be the only one returning to the field though.

Along with Green, Nick Vigil and Dre Kirkpatrick practiced in full today after being limited on Wednesday and Thursday. This all but confirms all three will be on the field, and the defense will see Vigil and Kirkpatrick play together for the first time since Week 6 against the Steelers.

Joining Kirkpatrick in the secondary will also be Darqueze Dennard, who sat out Thursday’s practice with an illness. All three starting cornerbacks for the Bengals are now back at full strength.

Carlos Dunlap also got a full practice after missing Wednesday’s session and going limited on Thursday with a hip injury. His impact will be crucial in pressuring quarterback Case Keenum and keeping running back Phillip Lindsay from getting to the edge.

The team declared both Josh Malone (Hamstring) and Tony McRae (Concussion) out for Sunday but left the door open for Cordy Glenn, who is listed as doubtful (Back). Glenn’s situation seems similar to Green’s in past weeks when he didn’t practice but the team kept it a game-time decision. With no practice under his belt this week, it’s hard to see Glenn out there on Sunday. Cedric Ogbuehi or Andre Smith figure to be starting in his place at left tackle.

It’s a shame that this is the healthiest the Bengals have been in weeks and they won’t even have their starting quarterback Andy Dalton out there to take advantage. Their fate is in the hands of Jeff Driskel, who at the very least has Green back in the lineup to do some damage against the stout Broncos’ defense.
