As expected, Cordy Glenn will not be playing in Week 1.
The Bengals declared Glenn out on Friday after the veteran tackle didn’t practice all week. That means Andre Smith will move to left tackle for Sunday’s matchup with the Seahawks. It will be just his second career start on the left side after playing exclusively at right tackle for his 11-year career.
A.J. Green is officially out, while backup wide receiver Auden Tate is doubtful to play with a knee injury. That means the Bengals will roll with John Ross, Tyler Boyd, Alex Erickson, Damion Willis and Pharoh Cooper at receiver this week.
Backup running back Trayveon Williams is out, so expect newly-acquired Samaje Perine to be active as the third running back.
Other than that, everyone who was listed with an injury but participated fully in practice are good to go Sunday. That includes Clayton Fejedelem, who suffered what looked like a serious ankle injury in the preseason, but it turns out he won’t miss any regular-season action because of it.
Bengals Injury Report
The Seahawks’ final injury report looks fairly similar, as they have declared three players out as well.
Seahawks Injury Report
Center Joey Hunt and wide receiver David Moore have missed practice all week, so it’s no surprise to see them listed as out. Defensive end L.J. Collier remained limited throughout the week and failed to get a full practice in, resulting in him being ruled out as well.
Guard Mike Iupati figures to be a game-time decision. He did not participate in Wednesday’s practice but went limited yesterday.
Players such as left tackle Duane Brown and defensive ends Ezekiel Ansah and Jadeveon Clowney appear to be good to go for Sunday.
