UPDATE 1:45 PM EST
Looks like Kirkpatrick will be out as well:
It’s been a rough season thus far for Dre Kirkpatrick, but he may go from being buried on the depth chart to getting significant snaps soon enough:
Though injury-prone and exhibiting a lack of awareness in coverage and committing unnecessary penalties, Kirkpatrick hasn’t lived up to the status of a first round pick thus far, but if the Bengals hope to continue their new-found success that leans heavily on their defense, they’ll need Kirkpatrick to step-up and fill-in for an injured Hall.
Terence Newman and Adam Jones will start with Kirkpatrick likely being the nickle-corner, and even when Hall returns, Kirkpatrick may need to fill-in for Jones if he’s suspended by the NFL for his most-recent legal troubles.
