The Cincinnati Bengals got a much-needed bye week to rest-up and get some of their injured players healed-up in hopes they can return for the next five games that will determine whether the franchise will make a third-straight playoff appearance. They’ll be hitting the road this week to take on the San Diego Chargers while getting a number of key players back from injury:
Middle linebacker Ray Maualuga is set to return from his knee injury after practicing again today, but Vincent Rey has played well in his absence enough that we’ll see both Reys play a significant amount of snaps this weekend.
Backup defensive tackle Devon Still also practiced today and will return to action after missing the past month of action with a dislocated elbow.
Starting right guard Kevin Zeitler is still dealing with an ankle injury that kept him from playing last week in a win over the Cleveland Browns, and it appears Mike Pollak will draw his second-straight start this weekend after Zeitler has now missed six-straight practices.
