The Cincinnati Bengals have released their Friday injury report. Here’s everything you need to know in preparation for Sunday.
The Bengals’ injury report is in, and things aren’t looking good on the injury front for Cincinnati.

Corners Leon Hall and Adam Jones both practiced for the first time this week, although both players were limited in practice. Hall, of course, was last week’s the AFC Defensive Player of the Week with an incredible performance that included a game-defining pick-six.
After being limited in practice yesterday, linebacker Emmanuel Lamur fully practiced on Friday and looks ready to go for Sunday’s matchup.
George Iloka has been battling a groin injury, and he hasn’t practiced since he was limited in practice on Wednesday. His status for Sunday’s game in Cleveland is questionable.
Offensive tackle Andre Smith took a day off after fully participating in practice on Wednesday and Thursday. He isn’t listed as injured, so his concussion concerns from Week 8 look to be a thing of the past. On the opposite side, tackle Andrew Whitworth full practiced on Thursday and Friday after taking Wednesday off.
While the Bengals’ injury report is the most extensive report of the season, it’s still encouraging that the team has managed to stay so healthy all season long. Only second-year cornerback Darqueze Dennard is on Cincinnati’s injured reserve, and for the most part, the entire team has stayed healthy all year long.
Heading into Sunday’s game in Cleveland, the Bengals are banged up. But the Browns are dealing with just as many–if not more–injuries, so Cincinnati won’t be at a major disadvantage along the injury front.
