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.

It was made official today that both Giovani Bernard and Vontaze Burfict will be out for this weekend’s game.

This means a heavy dose of Jeremy Hill this weekend as the Bengals will likely do their best to establish the running game in an effort to keep Drew Brees off the field.  Andre Smith’s absence may make establishing the run game harder as Marshall Newhouse struggled mightily last week.

With Rey Maualuga out, the Bengals’ defensive line will have to step up in order to stop Mark Ingram.  Hopefully Geno Atkins can continue to raise his game as he has in recent weeks.

The Bengals will have an uphill battle this week in New Orleans when looking for a much needed win.  The Bengals will need to an extraordinary effort on both sides of the ball while also making up for some missing key parts.
