It is time.

Will the Bengals clinch the first-overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft? Or will they begin a two-game win streak that pushes them down in the draft order?

The Bengals are set to take on the Dolphins shortly and each team has released their inactive lists. Here are the Bengals who will not be playing today:

  • QB Jake Dolegala
  • WR A.J. Green
  • WR Damion Willis
  • OL John Miller
  • OL Isaiah Prince
  • LB Brady Shelton
  • CB Torry McTyer

Green (ankle) and Miller (concussion) were each declared out on Friday. Green has confirmed that he will not play next week either and will officially miss the entirety of the 2019 season. Miller remains in the concussion protocol.

Due to Miller’s injury, John Jerry is active for depth along the offensive line. He hasn’t dressed for a game since Week 12 against the Steelers.

For the second straight week, the Bengals will also go with four tight ends and only four receivers with Willis inactive. This will keep Mason Schreck available for depth at the tight end position. Last week, Schreck only played a single snap in his second game of the year.

Shelton was recently activated off of the practice squad but will not get a chance to make his debut this week as the defense will roll with five linebackers once more.

Joe Mixon was limited for Thursday’s practice with what was listed as a calf injury but he will be playing. Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports that Mixon is now dealing with a stomach virus but will be playing through it.

Here are the inactives for the Dolphins:

  • FB Chandler Cox
  • OL J’Marcus Webb
  • OL Evan Boehm
  • OL Keaton Sutherland
  • DE Taco Charlton
  • DE Avery Moss
  • DE Charles Harris

Cox (shoulder), Boehm (ankle), and Charlton (ankle) were all listed as questionable going into this game and will not play due to their respective injuries. DT Zach Sieler (ankle) and K Jason Saunders (illness) were also questionable but will play.
