Here are the players the Bengals will be without today:
- CB Mackensie Alexander
- LB Markus Bailey
- DL Andrew Brown
- WR John Ross III
- K Austin Siebert
- OL Keaton Sutherland
- RB Trayveon Williams
As expected, Geno Atkins is active after head coach Zac Taylor confirmed Atkins would make his season debut this week. Atkins had been out for a little over a month with a shoulder injury. Brown is the defensive lineman that will not play now that Atkins is back.
After missing last week’s game with his hamstring injury, Alexander will now be out for two weeks in a row. Darius Phillips replaced Alexander in the slot last week and is expected to do so again today.
Ross has been inactive for three-straight weeks now, but this week he did appear on the injury report with an illness and was listed as doubtful.
Bailey got to play in his first NFL game last week while Logan Wilson was out with a concussion, but with Wilson back, the linebacker rotation will return to what it was to start the season.
Here are the Ravens inactives for today:
- OL Trystan Colon-Castillo
- DT Justin Ellis
- RB Justice Hill
- QB Trace McSorley
- WR Chris Moore
- OL Tyre Phillips
- DT Broderick Washington
The Ravens featured a whopping 12 players listed as questionable on the injury report, and 10 of those players will play. The only two who won’t are Moore (thigh/finger) and Washington (illness).
Phillips is a notable name here. He’s been the starter at right guard this year as a rookie, and is the first player to play that spot since Marshal Yanda retired.
Other notable names that were featured on the injury report like Mark Andrews, Marcus Peters, and Lamar Jackson will all be out there.
