Today’s practice session saw three starters in the secondary either missing or limited in practice, including corenrback Leon Hall, who looks less likelier by the day to play on Sunday vs the Cleveland Browns.

Did not Practice

CB Leon Hall, CB Dre Kirkpatrick, S Reggie Nelson, OG Mike Pollak;

Limited Participants

RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis, CB Terence Newman

Full Participants

OT Anthony Collins, CB Brandon Ghee

If Hall can’t go, then Jones and Newman will start, but it’s unclear as to who the all-important nickle-corner would be if Kirkpatrick is also out.

Other than that, the Bengals are fairly healthy going into Sunday’s game, and with a game against the currently undefeated New England Patriots looming next week, they’ll certainly need Hall at 100% for that contest.

At this point, it looks like Hall isn’t going to play Sunday, and hopefully Kirkpatrick will be ready to go.
