The Cincinnati Bengals game against the Denver Broncos this Monday is essentially a must-win if they want to win the division and/or make the playoffs.  Last week, the Bengals injury report included several players from the secondary, yet, thankfully, many played with the exception of Terence Newman.  This week, the Bengals face a much more potent offense, so having everyone healthy will be key.  Hopefully they’ll be able to get everyone ready for this Monday.  Here’s the Bengals injury report heading into Monday.

A.J. Green‘s surprise appearance on the Bengals injury report was confirmed to be nothing serious, and Green should be ready for this weekend.

This confirmation is consistent with a largely positive report today.  Both Terence Newman and Jermaine Gresham returned to practice this week after missing last week’s matchup.  Margus Hunt returned to practice today after missing the last month with an ankle injury.  After practicing fully today, Hunt could be ready for game action by this weekend.

Both Carlos Dunlap and Dre Kirkpatrick practiced only on a limited basis.  Their status for this weekend shouldn’t be in serious doubt, but if Dunlap misses this weekend that would be a great blow to the Bengals’ effort to pressure Peyton Manning this weekend.

Emmanuel Lamur and James Wright are the only two players who sat out entirely today with a legit injury.  Wright has been out the last few weeks after having a breakout game against Tampa Bay.  Lamur’s injury is new, so we’ll have to monitor his progress through the week.
