The Bengals list of inactives include WR Andrew Hawkins, safety Reggie Nelson, WR Marvin Jones, DT Devon Still, CB Jason Allen, DT Brandon Thompson,  and reserve TE Richard Quinn.

With Hawkins out, rookie WR Mohamed Sanu is expected to receive his first career NFL start fresh off of his career-high 4-catch, 47 yard performance against the New York Giants last week.


Chiefs starting center Ryan Lilja first popped up on the injury report on Friday, and losing your starting center before having to face Geno Atkins is not good news for any NFL team.

According to Reid Ferrin of, this is how the Cheifs offensive line will look today:



That means Pro Bowl right tackle Eric Winston will start at right guard. Supplementing his RT spot will be rookie Donald Stephenson. Expect to see Michael Johnson and Carlos Dunlap have a big day for the Bengals.
