For the Bengals, running back Joe Mixon has been ruled out as he recovers from a concussion suffered in Sunday’s win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Samaje Perine will be the starter this week following his three-touchdown performance in Pittsburgh.
Fellow running back Chris Evans will play Sunday after missing last week with a knee issue.
Wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase is questionable with his hip injury, though he is expected to play Sunday. He got in three limited practices this week.
Defensive tackle Josh Tupou, defensive back Daxton Hill and linebacker Joe Bachie are all questionable to play as well.
For the Titans, starting defensive lineman Denico Autry is out with a knee injury. Autry has seven sacks, six tackles for loss and 16 QB hits this season, so his absence is great news for Joe Burrow and the Bengals offensive line. Autry had 1.5 sacks and two QB hits in the Divisional Round playoff thriller vs. Cincinnati in January.
Defensive tackle Jeffrey Simmons (ankle), center Ben Jones (concussion), cornerback Kristian Fulton (hamstring), kicker Randy Bullock (calf; lol), and running back Hassan Haskins (hip) are all questionable to play.
