Bengals @ Browns Final Injury Report: Kirkpatrcik may Play, & D’Qwell Jackson Likely Will


 

NAME POSITION INJURY WED. THU. FRI. GAME STATUS
Allen, Jason CB Quad LP LP FP Questionable
Gilberry, Wallace DE Calf - - LP Questionable
Green, A.J. WR Knee LP FP FP Probable
Jones, Adam CB Back - LP FP Probable
Kirkpatrick, Dre CB Knee LP FP FP Questionable
Moch, Dontay LB Illness - DNP FP Questionable
Newman, Terence CB Groin DNP LP FP Probable
Whitworth, Andrew T Knee LP LP FP Probable

 

The biggest news of the day came from Head Coach Marvin Lewis, who revealed that first-round cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick may be ready to suit up Sunday vs. the Browns. After Kirk hurt suffered a knee injury before training camp, he then aggravated the injury during camp, and has been sidelined for much of the two months since, but has been practicing for the past two weeks now, and lately has been able to fully practice with no reported limitations. With back CB Jason Allen set to miss another game, the Bengals would have only four corners going into Sunday if Kirk doesn’t play. The question of whether he plays or not will likely come down to if Lewis thinks Kirkpatrick is ready to contribute more than that of either Jeromy Miles or Chris Crocker, as both safeties have seen limited snaps at CB. Don’t expect Kirk to be active this week.

 

And the Browns:

NAME POSITION INJURY WED. THU. FRI. GAME STATUS
Benjamin, Travis WR Hamstring DNP DNP LP Doubtful
Fujita, Scott LB Shoulder/Neck LP DNP DNP Questionable
Gipson, Tashaun DB Knee DNP DNP DNP Out
Jackson, D’Qwell LB Head DNP LP FP Probable
Massaquoi, Mohamed WR Hamstring DNP DNP DNP Out
Norwood, Jordan WR Foot DNP DNP DNP Out
Patterson, Dimitri DB Ankle DNP DNP DNP Out
Rubin, Ahtyba DL Calf DNP DNP DNP Questionable
Rucker, Frostee DE Shoulder FP FP FP Probable
Smith, Alex TE Head LP FP FP Probable
Ventrone, Ray DB Hand/Calf LP LP LP Questionable
Ward, T. J. DB Hand LP LP LP Questionable
Pro Bowl MLB D’Qwell Jackson was a full participant as he looks to be recovered from Sunday’s concussion he suffered against the Giants, so expect him to suit up vs. the Bengals.

The receiving corps will be the weakest it’s been all season, as the team will be without Mohamed Massaquoi, Jordan Norwood, and likely won’t have Travis Benjamin either. All three receivers have started games, and Massaquoi and Benjamin have been arguably the teams’ top-2 receivers through the first five weeks. Rookie Josh Gordan has emerged of late, so expect to see plenty of targets go his way.
