For starters, left tackle Cordy Glenn was not seen at practice, on the rehab field or otherwise.
Glenn was not listed with an injury from Thursday’s game, so his absence may not be injury related. Regardless, with head coach Zac Taylor stating the starting offensive line has not been set yet, not having Glenn taking reps just creates more variables for the rest of the starters.
The rehab field hosted a few familiar names today in John Ross and Darqueze Dennard, as well as some new ones like tight end Drew Sample and cornerback Darius Phillips.

Sample, Phillips, Cody Core and Dre Kirkpatrick all played on Thursday and did not exit the game with an injury, so their issues may be just minor ones. Clayton Fejedelem did not play and the hope is he practices before Thursday’s game against the Giants. KeiVarae Russell hasn’t played in the preseason at all and it appears he’s not quite ready to practice yet.
The only official injury the Bengals suffered against the Redskins was to running back Trayveon Williams, who isn’t expected to play until the start of the regular season at the earliest, according to Taylor.
Zac says Trayvon Williams won't play rest of preseason. Maybe week 2. Joe, Gio to get plenty work Thurs— Geoff Hobson (@GeoffHobsonCin) August 18, 2019
Ross may be back at practice tomorrow as Taylor mentioned Monday was the day he was hopeful to return and Dennard was labeled as “week-to-week” so he’ll be working on the rehab field for a little while longer.
We’ll see if some of these guys return to practice before Thursday’s game.
