It’s almost been exactly one month since left tackle Cordy Glenn suffered a concussion in Week 2 of the preseason against the Redskins, and Glenn will remain sidelined for the time being.
Glenn, along with wide receiver A.J. Green, have been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the 49ers. Green (ankle) has been rehabbing without a boot for the first time this week and is slowly but surely getting back into game shape. But without actually practicing this week, it was obvious that he’ll be inactive once more. We’re still at least two weeks away from seeing his 2019 debut.
Running back Joe Mixon is one of three Bengals officially listed as questionable for Sunday. Mixon suffered an ankle injury of his own against the Seahawks and didn’t practice on Wednesday or Thursday. He did partake in Friday’s walkthrough, which would indicate that the team believes he’s good to play, but he’ll ultimately be a game-time decision when Sunday comes around.
Fellow running back Trayveon Williams and safety Clayton Fejedelem are also listed as questionable. Williams (foot) hasn’t played since Week 1 of the preseason and just started practicing this week. If Mixon can’t go, then it’s important for Williams to be ready, otherwise the Bengals would have just two active running backs.
Fejedelem played last week in Seattle after missing three preseason games with an ankle injury. He was limited on Wednesday and Thursday, perhaps as a courtesy by the team to keep him rested after his first game back. He should be good to go if no setbacks occur.
Other players such as Jessie Bates III (wrist) and Auden Tate (knee) both got the green light to play as they practiced in full on Thursday.
As for the 49ers, the big name to watch for is defensive end Nick Bosa, who was able to practice today and is questionable for Sunday.
