The Bengals are set to travel to Chicago and take on the Bears this weekend. They’ll do so with a slightly banged up back seven on defense.

As we all know, cornerback Trae Waynes (hamstring) will not play. Waynes was not seen on the rehab field Friday during practice, which indicates he’s a step closer to returning. Safety Ricardo Allen (hand/hamstring) won’t play either as he is spending his first week on the Reserve/Injured list.

Cornerback Darius Phillips (thigh) and linebacker Markus Bailey (knee) are both listed as questionable for Sunday. Phillips at the very least fully participated in Friday’s practice after being limited Wednesday and Thursday. Bailey was limited the entire week, so he might be a pure game-time decision.

Jackson Carman (cramps) practiced in full on Friday after cramps limited him on Thursday. Carman was active last week as the team’s backups swing guard.

The Bears have only declared one of their players out, but listed another one as doubtful. Left tackle Larry Borom (ankle) will not play, which could be an issue with Jason Peters (quad) questionable. Peters should end up suiting up, but he probably won’t be 100% and Borom had to come in for him last week.

Eddie Goldman (knee) is officially doubtful after missing practice Thursday and Friday. One can assume that this means Goldman won’t play unless something develops in the next 48 hours. The Bears’ defensive line remains one of their strongest units, but not having Goldman for two-straight weeks is an unfortunate blow.

Robert Quinn (back), Marquise Goodwin (quad), Joel Iyiegbuniwe (shoulder), Darnell Mooney (back), and Nsimba Webster (hamstring) are questionable, but each of them practiced Friday and can be expected to play.
