The Cincinnati Bengals and Cleveland Browns have announced their inactives for their second meeting this year.

For the Bengals, they will be without the following players today:

  • CB KeiVarae Russell
  • CB Tony McRae
  • LB Jordan Evans
  • OL Cedric Ogbuehi
  • WR Tyler Boyd
  • TE Jordan Franks
  • DE Kasim Edebali

The Bengals had listed Vontaze Burfict as questionable due to his concussion, but after getting in a full practice on Friday, he’ll be playing for the first time since Week 13. Jordan Evans will not join him on the field as he was out all week with an ankle injury.

As for the healthy scratches, KeiVarae Russell practiced in full for the duration of the week while dealing with a finger injury but he will not suit up. Per usual, Cedric Ogbuehi and Kasim Edebali will also be watching from the sidelines, along with Jordan Franks for the second week in a row.

For the Browns, here is who they will be without today:

  • QB Drew Stanton
  • DB Phillip Gaines
  • LB Tanner Vallejo
  • OL Kyle Kalis
  • OL Desmond Harrison
  • DL Chad Thomas
  • DL Carl Davis

Gaines and Vallejo were listed as questionable coming into this game, while the others are just healthy scratches.

Center J.C. Tretter, defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi and safety Jabrill Peppers are all active today after being limited in some capacity throughout the week.
