The Cincinnati Bengals are favored by double digits to beat the New York Jets in Week 8. A big part of that is not just how superior the Bengals have been on the field, but also how much better they’ve been on the injury front.
That’s become even more obvious after star wideout Corey Davis suffered a hip injury in Thursday’s practice, which now has him listed as doubtful to play Sunday.
Head coach Robert Saleh revealed earlier in the day that Davis was unlikely to go vs. the Bengals, so this comes as no surprise.

The Jets are already without No. 2 overall pick Zach Wilson (knee), which means third-year man Mike White will start at quarterback, so their already-struggling offense will be even more depleted Sunday than it’s been all season.
Starting defensive end Bryce Huff (back) is out along with backup running back Tevin Coleman (hamstring) and backup tight end Trevon Wesco (knee).
The Jets will also have four players questionable to play: Starting linebacker C.J. Mosley (hamstring), backup tight end and former Bengal Tyler Kroft (back), starting safety Ashtyn Davis (shoulder), and backup defensive lineman Shaq Lawson (wrist).
As for the Bengals, rookie running back Chris Evans (hamstring) has been ruled out after not practicing this week, while wide receiver Auden Tate (thigh) is questionable after being limited in practice the past two days. Everyone else is good to go.
