The Bengals and Giants have released their inactive players list as NFL Week 12 is about to kickoff its Sunday slate.

Here are the five players the Bengals will be without today:

  • OL B.J. Finney
  • OL Fred Johnson
  • K Austin Siebert
  • OL Keaton Sutherland
  • WR Mike Thomas

Thomas, who was listed as doubtful with a hamstring injury, is the only player on the 53-man roster who will not play due to an injury. Giovani Bernard (concussion), and Mackensie Alexander (hamstring) were listed as questionable, but both will play and start.

Per usual, the offensive line will only dress eight players as Finney, Johnson, Sutherland are inactive. Quinton Spain is expected to start for Michael Jordan at left guard, and Bobby Hart and Alex Redmond will take their spots back at right tackle and right guard, respectively.

Here are the inactives for the Giants:

  • K Ryan Santoso
  • LB T.J. Brunson
  • DB Montre Hartage
  • T Kyle Murphy
  • DL R.J. McIntosh
  • LB Trent Harris

None of these six players were featured on the injury report, so the Giants have a fully healthy roster for today’s game. They’re also playing rookie safety Xavier McKinney for the first time all season, as he came off of the Reserve/Injured list on Saturday.
