Bengals - Jaguars Injury Report: Mike Zimmer Anticipates Nate Clements & Leon Hall will Play Sunday


Starting corners Leon Hall and Nate Clements conditioned to miss practice today, but defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer said that he believes both players will suit up Sunday when the Bengals face off against the Jaguars for a chance to improve to 3-1. The team did add safety Chris Crocker to the roster today, signaling the teams’ disbelief in their current safety situation. Taylor Mays and Jeromy Miles have struggled as first-year starters, and Nate Clements did get the nod their last week, so its unclear who will be lining up there when Maurice Jones-Drew leads the Jags’ offense onto the field Sunday.

The other notables were CB Jason Allen and starting center Jeff Faine going from limited practice on Wednesday to not practicing Thursday. If they don’t practice tomorrow or only practice in a limited capacity, their likelihood of playing Sunday will certainly take a significant hit.


Here’s the rest of the injury report:

Allen, Jason CB Thigh LP DNP - -
Clements, Nate CB Calf DNP DNP - -
Dunlap, Carlos DE Knee LP LP - -
Faine, Jeff C Hamstring LP DNP - -
Hall, Leon CB Hamstring DNP DNP - -
Johnson, Michael DE Foot - LP - -
Kirkpatrick, Dre CB Knee DNP DNP - -
Nelson, Reggie S Shoulder LP FP - -
Scott, Bernard RB Ankle DNP LP - -
Whitworth, Andrew T Knee DNP LP - -


And the Jaguars:

Alualu, Tyson DT not injury related DNP LP - -
Bradfield, Cameron OL ankle FP FP - -
Britton, Eben OL ankle LP FP - -
Jennings, Rashad RB knee FP FP - -
Lane, Austen DE foot FP FP - -
Meester, Brad C not injury related DNP FP - -
Owens, Montell RB concussion FP FP - -
Robinson, Laurent WR concussion DNP DNP - -
Rutland, Kevin CB concussion FP FP - -
Selvie, George DE knee DNP DNP - -
Smith, Daryl LB groin DNP DNP - -


Starting WR Laurent Robinson continues to miss practice with concussion-like symptoms, and its looking more unlikely he’ll play Sunday.

Starting LB Daryl Smith has essentially been ruled out with a groin injury that may keep him out beyond this week.
