The Bengals had two defensive starters unable to go on Monday.

The Bengals and Ravens held a rare Monday practice, though it was mostly a walkthrough with no real contact.

However, there was still significant news as linebacker Preston Brown and defensive end Carlos Dunlap did not practice for the Bengals. Brown is battling an ankle injury that has him iffy for Thursday’s clash with Baltimore.

Dunlap is battling a calf injury that wasn’t reported on Monday, so hopefully, it’s minor and he’s back practicing Tuesday.

The only other Bengals to not get in a full practice were wide receiver Cody Core (back), left guard Clint Boling (foot) and cornerback Darqueze Dennard (neck), all of whom were limited. None of their injuries appear to be significant.

Tight end Tyler Eifert (back) and cornerback William Jackson (shoulder) were listed as full participants.

On Baltimore’s side, tight end Hayden Hurst remains out with a foot injury and is almost certainly out this week. He’s still recovering from surgery late in the preseason.

Backup cornerback Maurice Canady was held out with a thigh injury. That’s key with starting cornerback Jimmy Smith still sidelined due to a four-game suspension.

Backup running back Kenneth Dixon was out with a knee injury. He actually ran for 44 yards and one score on 13 carries in Baltimore’s 47-3 win over the Bills.

Backup defensive tackle Willie Henry was out with a hernia injury. He was inactive in Week 1.

All told, the Ravens will have just about all of their heavy-hitters able to go Thursday. Let’s hope the same is true for the Bengals.
