The Cincinnati Bengals face their divisional rival, the Cleveland Browns this Thursday night. The game is of paramount importance as the AFC North is locked in a tight battle amongst all four teams as the last place Baltimore Ravens are within two games of the divisional lead. The Bengals head into the game on the short week, so it’s likely that Giovani Bernard will miss his second straight game. Here’s the Bengals injury report heading into Week 10.

The Bengals have officially listed cornerback Leon Hall out for tomorrow night’s game according to Paul Dehner.

Vontaze Burfict’s absence is unsurprising considering he just recently had arthroscopic knee surgery and was expected to be out this week for some time.

The Bengals may also be missing Giovani Bernard.  This will give Jeremy Hill his second shot at stardom after last week’s running explosion.

Fans may also get to see if offensive swing tackle Marshall Newhouse can reclaim the role of the departed Anthony Collins as right tackle Andre Smith may not see the field after officially being listed as doubtful.  Smith will face a tough test tomorrow night from the likes of Browns outside linebackers Paul Kruger and Barkevious Mingo.  Hopefully Newhouse can really embrace the opportunity.  It’ll be the first since joining the Bengals this off-season.
