The Bengals have wrapped-up their Thursday practice session, and it’s looking likely that the Bengals will be without their two best defensive backs:

Hall Nelson not working for # Bengals. Has to put them doubtful vs Browns — Geoff Hobson (@GeoffHobsonCin) September 26, 2013
Newman and Green-Ellis upgraded to full participation. Hall, Nelson, Kirkpatrick and Pollak did not practice #bengals

It’s a tough loss to take against any team, but for a team that believes it’s a Super Bowl contender, there should be enough guys on this team that can step-up their game and ease the loss.
Specifically Newman, who was a full-participant today, and he and Adam Jones are a formidable CB-duo on their own.
Still, expect Sunday’s contest to once again come down to the fourth-quarter, as this will be a dog-fight in the dawg pound.
