A handful of starters for the Bengals dealt suffered injuries last Sunday against the Cardinals.

Alex Erickson, who got the start for John Ross III, left the game with a concussion and is still in the concussion protocol, said head coach Zac Taylor during his press conference today.

Erickson is joined by Cordy Glenn and Kerry Wynn, who have each missed a combined eight games this season due to concussions. This puts Erickson’s chances of playing on Sunday in doubt.

Taylor also said that Shawn Williams is day-to-day with a knee injury and is wearing a knee brace.

After Sunday’s game, it was said that Williams should be good to go for Week 6 against the Ravens. The same was said for Andre Smith, who is dealing with an ankle injury that took him out of the Cardinals game. The team is trying John Jerry and Alex Redmond at left tackle if Smith can’t go.

We’ll have more injury details later today when the team releases their first injury report for the week.
