The Bengals can only list seven players as inactive for Sunday’s road game against the Ravens, and they’ve already declared six players out.
This week, Carlos Dunlap (knee) headlines the laundry list of injuries Cincinnati is dealing with. Dunlap was a full participant during Wednesday’s practice, but was limited yesterday. He did not practice today, as it appears his injury regressed.
Without Dunlap, the Bengals are now down to just two true edge defenders in Sam Hubbard and Carl Lawson. Defensive tackles Andrew Brown and Renell Wren will see ample time on the edge with Dunlap and Kerry Wynn (concussion) out as well.
As expected, Andre Smith (ankle) and Ryan Glasgow (thigh) have also been declared out after not practicing all week. Smith’s replacement at left tackle is likely to be John Jerry, and Alex Redmond will back him up. With Brown and Wren likely to be playing more on the edge, Josh Tupou will get most of the opportunities inside with Glasgow out.
A.J. Green (ankle) and Cordy Glenn (concussion) will also not play, as we’ve known since the beginning of the week. Green was limited today and yesterday, while Glenn was limited on Wednesday.
Shawn Williams (thigh) is listed as questionable and is likely going to be a game-time decision. Head coach Zac Taylor still expects him to play.
For the Ravens, two of their top offensive players are questionable in tight end Mark Andrews and wide receiver Marquise Brown. Andrews was limited today, while Brown didn’t practice all week, so there’s a decent chance at least one of them is inactive Sunday.
Starting linebacker Patrick Onwuasor is also questionable to play. He has 30 total tackles on the season. He did not practice this week.
The only other designation Baltimore has for someone is cornerback Jimmy Smith being ruled out. Otherwise, Baltimore is pretty healthy coming into this matchup.
