Wednesday’s injury report for the Cincinnati Bengals lists 11 players that were either limited or did not participate, but only one of them did not practice due to an injury.

Joe Mixon (foot) did not practice on Wednesday and hasn’t practiced since Friday, October 23rd. Since injuring his foot against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 6, Mixon’s streak of missed games hit a career-high of three last Sunday when he didn’t play against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Geno Atkins also did not play in Pittsburgh because his wife, Kristen Atkins, delivered the family’s second child on Monday, November 9th. The baby was delivered five weeks earlier than its due date. Atkins was not at practice today for this reason. Mike Daniels and A.J. Green received rest days.

Two other inactives from Sunday, LeShaun Sims and Bobby Hart, were limited on Wednesday. Sims suffered a concussion last Thursday and Hart has been out for a few weeks with a knee injury he suffered in Week 7 against the Cleveland Browns.

Jonah Williams, who has also been out since Week 7 with a stinger injury, was a full participant in practice on Wednesday. Williams was expected to play on Sunday but suffered an apparent setback, which prevented him from making his return.

Mackensie Alexander (concussion) was limited along with Alex Redmond (biceps) and Xavier Williams (back). Alexander left during Sunday’s game after being evaluated for a concussion. Redmond played the entire game at right guard while Williams played 34 snaps and started as well at defensive tackle.

Germaine Pratt and Jessie Bates III both popped up on the injury report because they were identified as potential COVID-19 close contacts, but both were cleared through contact tracing during practice. Pratt just happened to not make it back in time to participate in practice.

Seven players for the Washington Football Team did not practice on Wednesday; three of them being starters. This includes S Deshazor Everett (ankle), LT Cornelius Lucas (ankle), and K Dustin Hopkins (right groin).

DE Ryan Anderson (knee), OT Geron Christian Sr. (knee), WR Dontrelle Inman (hamstring) and LB Jared Norris (hamstring) also did not participate.
