The Bengals have had a number of key players injured seemingly every week through the first six games, and now is probably the healthiest they’ve been all season. But hat doesn’t mean at least one key players is dealing with an ailment that may prevent him from sitting out Sunday’s game vs the Detroit Lions, as starting cornerback Terence Newman missed practice today, the second-straight session he’s missed:

The Bengals need all of their corners to be a full-go on Sunday as they prepare to face one of the league’s top passing offenses, led by All-Pro receiver Calvin Johnson, widely regarded as the league’s best receiver.
Newman just needs a full-go during Friday’s session to be prepared to start Sunday. If he misses tomorrow, he’s likely out. If he’s limited, he’ll be listed as either doubtful or questionable on the final injury report.
