Bengals injury report: Cordy Glenn, Darqueze Dennard and Auden Tate remain out

New, comments

Dennard may end up opening the regular season on PUP.

Cincinnati Bengals v Cleveland Browns

The Bengals are three days away from closing out the preseason and five days away from cutting their roster down to 53 players. Thursday’s exhibition against the Indianapolis Colts will be the final trial for the several players currently on the bubble, and a handful of those bubble players did not practice today.

Cordy Glenn is certainly not a bubble player and Auden Tate, at this point, probably isn’t either. The two of them and nine other players did not participate during Monday’s practice.

Glenn isn’t the only offensive lineman to miss practice; Christian Westerman and undrafted rookies O’Shea Dugas and Keaton Sutherland were absent as well. Westerman hasn’t participated since returning from near-retirement last week.

Dugas and Sutherland have each been healthy this month up to this point and not practicing only diminishes their already minimal chances of cracking the final roster. Both need to play Thursday to even support an argument for them making the practice squad.

Jeff Driskel, Stanley Morgan, Trayveon Williams and Moritz Bohringer all missed practice last week as well and odds are they will all miss Thursday’s game unless they return to practice tomorrow. Williams is the only one out of those four players who can feel comfortable about making the final 53.

Darqueze Dennard is still on the Physically Unable to Perform list and there’s been no word on whether or not he’ll be activated by the end of this week. Morrison actually speculated that Dennard will probably remain there and miss the first six games of the regular season.

On a lighter note, it appears that Clayton Fejedelem has returned to the practice field after he injured his ankle In Week 1 against the Chiefs. With none of the starters playing on Thursday, Fejedelem will likely get needed reps if they clear him to play.
