The Bengals have been hit hard by the injury bug in recent weeks. But in terms of guys on the 53-man roster, nearly everyone will be able to go Sunday vs. the Colts.
On Friday, Cincinnati released its final injury report, which only has Mackensie Alexander as questionable and Auden Tate as doubtful. No other player has an injury designation.
Tate was limited in practice this week with a shoulder injury. Assuming he doesn’t play Sunday, that should pave the way for John Ross to be active for the first time since Week 2.
As for Alexander, he fully practiced this week, while Zac Taylor said Friday that the veteran cornerback should play Sunday.
For the Colts, they have a number of key players set to miss Sunday. Star linebacker Darius Leonard is doubtful to play due to a groin injury, while tight end Mo Alie-Cox has been ruled out with a knee injury.
Starting offensive tackle Anthony Castonzo is questionable to play due to a rib injury. He practiced fully the last two days, so expect him to be active.
Starting defensive end Justin Houston is questionable to play with a hip injury that prevented him from practicing Friday. Fellow defensive lineman Denico Autry is questionable with ankle and knee injuries, though he fully practiced Friday.
