The Cincinnati Bengals and Minnesota Vikings have announced their inactives for Week 15.

For the Bengals, here is who will sit out today.

  • RB Chris Evans
  • OT Jackson Carman
  • C Trey Hill
  • DT Jay Tufele
  • LB Joe Bachie

Coming into the game, the Bengals’ only players uncertain to play were tight end Drew Sample (illness), backup guard Jackson Carman (illness), and backup linebacker Joe Bachie (oblique).

The fourth-year Bachie, who primarily plays on special teams, was listed as questionable to play and is inactive today.

Carman has been a regular scratch this year, so no loss there.

Sample has been a key player on offense this year, so having him is good news.

  • RB Alexander Mattison
  • QB Josh Dobbs (emergency QB)
  • WR Jalen Nailor
  • OT Brian O’Neill
  • OG Chris Reed
  • TE Nick Muse
  • DB Lewis Cine

The Vikings entered the day with two players listed as questionable to play in star wideout Justin Jefferson (chest) and backup offensive guard Chris Reed (illness). Jefferson will play, while Reed is out.

Starting right tackle Brian O’Neil (ankle) and backup wideout Jalen Nailor (concussion) were previously ruled out.

In other news, Josh Dobbs is the emergency third QB behind starter Nick Mullens and backup Jaren Hall.
