For the second straight day, practicing fully were DE Carlos Dunlap and RB Bernard Scott, and both remain likely to make their 2012 debuts this Sunday vs. the Redskins. CB Jason Allen also continues to practice fully, and Bengals Head Coach Marvin Lewis said Dunlap, Scott, and Allen all had good weeeks of practice. Allen and Dunlpa will by nice additions to a Bengals defense that ranks 30th-overall in the NFL.

Lewis however wouldn’t talk about CB Leon Hall‘s status. He participated briefly in practice today, and it appeared as though the Bengals were resting him. Hopefully he’s healthy enough to suit up Sunday, as the Redskins sports the league’s #1 scoring offense, and Hall is the Bengals top defensive-back. He’s officially being listed as questionable.

We probably won’t be seeing first-rounder Dre Kirkpatrick anytime soon, as Lewis said he likely won’t be ready to play in a game until after the October 28th bye, meaning he won’t debut in an NFL game until November at the earliest.

On the Redskins injury front, head coach Mike Shanahan said today that the teams’ #1 receiver, Pierre Garcon, is doubtful to play on Sunday.
