The Bengals had a walkthrough practice on Wednesday afternoon, and the injury report reflected more good news than bad news.

The only players who did not participate were A.J. Green (ankle), John Ross III (sternoclavicular) and Cordy Glenn (concussion). Green and Glenn are not going to play this week, per head coach Zac Taylor, and Ross was placed on the Reserve/Injured list before practice began today. It appears that Glenn did have a setback after being limited last week.

As for everyone else, they fully participated in the walkthrough. Defensive lineman Carl Lawson (hamstring), Kerry Wynn (concussion) and Ryan Glasgow (thigh) each missed the last two games and were full participants today.

Carlos Dunlap (knee) and B.W. Webb (forearm) each played on Monday after both of them appeared on the injury report leading up to the game. Andre Smith (hamstring) left the game early, but looks to be fine. All three were full participants as well.

It’s important to again clarify that this was just a walkthrough. Since the Bengals played on Monday night, they weren’t going to have a full practice on Wednesday. Tomorrow and Friday is when we’ll see if the full participants are still practicing for real.

The Cardinals did have a live practice today, and their injury report is far more extensive. Seven players did not practice due to injuries, including wide receiver Christian Kirk (ankle) and left guard Justin Pugh (shoulder). Veterans Larry Fitzgerald and Corey Peters were each given a rest day.

Right tackle Jordan Mills left last week’s game against the Seahawks with a knee injury, but was practicing in limited fashion today. Third-year safety Budda Baker (thigh) was also limited.
