Here are the players the Bengals will be without:
- RB Trayvon Williams
- WR Trenton Irwin
- WR Stanley Morgan Jr. (hamstring)
- OT Fred Johnson
- DE Cam Sample (groin)
- DT Josh Tupou (knee)
- CB Vernon Hargreaves III
Morgan, Sample, and Tupou were all featured on this week’s injury report. Morgan and Sample were doubtful to play, while Tupou was questionable.
Playing for Sample will likely be Wyatt Ray and Khalid Kareem at defensive end. Tupou’s absence will be filled by Zach Kerr and recently-elevated Damion Square at defensive end. Square, who played against the Bengals in the Wild Card round, becomes the first player in NFL history to play for two teams in a single postseason.
Here are the Chiefs’ inactives:
- QB Shane Buechele
- RB Derrick Gore
- OT Prince Tega Wanogho
- DE Joshua Kaindoh
- DT Khalen Saunders
- CB DeAndre Baker
All healthy scratches for Kansas City. Safety Tyrann Mathieu (concussion) was fully cleared to play Sunday morning. Running back Darrel Williams (toe), who was questionable, is also playing.
