The Cincinnati Bengals begin a three game road trip in Week 11 against the NFC South leading New Orleans Saints. The Bengals have been terribly inconsistent lately and need to begin to find themselves quickly if they want to make the playoffs for the fourth straight year. Here’s the Bengals injury report heading into Week 11’s vital game.

[table id=55 /]

Practice Status

DNP = Did not participate in practice
LP = Limited Participation in Practice – Less than 100% of a player’s normal repetitions
FP = Full Participation – 100% of a player’s normal repetitions
Out = Player will not play
(-) = Not Listed = No practice status available

Game Status

Out = Player will not play
Doubtful = 25% chance a player will play
Questionable = 50% chance a player will play
Probable = 75% chance a player will play
(-) = Not Listed – No game status available

Leon Hall continues to participate fully at practice, so it looks like he’ll play on Sunday.

Rey Maualuga continues to practice, albeit on a limited basis, so he could play on Sunday.  His presence would be huge towards helping the Bengals limit the Saints’ surprisingly effective running game.  Mark Ingram is having a career year thus far and is one of the NFL’s top rushers.  Stopping him will be no easy task come Sunday.

The big concern on today’s practice report is Andre Smith going from practicing on a limited basis to not practicing on Tuesday.  This puts his status this week in great jeopardy.  That could be a problem for the Bengals on Sunday considering how poorly Marshall Newhouse performed against the Browns.  Maybe the Bengals should consider giving Tanner Hawkinson some action.
