For the second time in as many days, Bengals cornerback Leon Hall is practicing, significantly improving prognostications that he'll play this weekend against the run-heavy Buffalo Bills. Joining him is Brandon Ghee, who has been dealing with a thigh that kept him out against the New England Patriots and during Wednesday's session.
However, Michael Johnson remains under concussion protocols is not practicing with the team. After Cincinnati's dreadful loss to the Cleveland Browns came to a merciful end on Sunday, Johnson approached trainers to complain about concussion symptoms.
The fifth-year defensive end was held out of practice last week and replaced by Wallace Gilberry against the Patriots. So far this week, Johnson has missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday, leaving doubt that he'll be ready when the Bengals head to Buffalo this weekend.
