Coming off their Week 1 victory, the Cincinnati Bengals chose to do walkthroughs instead of practicing Wednesday afternoon. Today’s injury report is but a projection if they did practice.
The news of the day involves Ricardo Allen (hand/hamstring). After suffering two separate injuries against the Vikings, Allen has been placed on the Reserve/Injured list with the hope that he can return in a few weeks. They still listed him as a non-participant.
Trae Waynes (hamstring) has already been declared out and didn’t practice Wednesday. The question is now whether or not he’ll start practicing again next week.
Every other player practiced in full yesterday aside from linebacker Markus Bailey (knee) and cornerback Darius Phillips (thigh). Both defenders were limited on Wednesday. Joe Burrow (knee) and Brandon Wilson (thumb) are also listed as full participants. Burrow did not suffer a new knee injury.
Bengals Injury Report
The Chicago Bears were also without two players on Wednesday, but one was due to injury. Backup offensive lineman Larry Borom (ankle) did not practice and tight end Jimmy Graham got a veteran’s day off.
What’s more interesting is seeing who was limited for Chicago. Defensive tackle Eddie Goldman (knee/ankle) did not play last week but was at least practicing in some fashion along with edge rusher Robert Quinn (back) and offensive tackle Jason Peters (limited).
Goldman and Quinn are integral components of Chicago’s defensive front, and Peters is their starting left tackle. Borom came in for Peters Sunday night in the team’s loss to the Los Angeles Rams. If Peters is at least limited on Wednesday, there’s a decent chance he can play on Sunday.
Wide receivers Marquise Goodwin (quad), and Darnell Mooney (back) were full participants along with linebacker Joel Iyiegbuniwe (shoulder).
