Bengals have 13 players on injury report


Four Cincinnati Bengals missed practice Wednesday and nine others were limited as the team prepares to face Philadelphia on Sunday at Paul Brown Stadium.

Sitting out were wide receiver A.J. Green (hamstring), safety Derron Smith (thigh), tackle Andrew Whitworth (non-injury related) and quarterback AJ McCarron (neck, non-injury related).

McCarron reported the sore neck to the trainers, who were unable to trace it back to any football injury, hence the NIR designation.

The nine players who worked on a limited basis were wide receiver Brandon LaFell (knee), defensive end Carlos Dunlap (thigh), guard Clint Boling (shoulder), defensive end Wallace Gilberry (calf), long snapper Clark Harris (groin), H-back Ryan Hewitt (foot), tight ends Tyler Kroft (concussion) and C.J. Uzomah (calf) and safety Shawn Williams (hamstring).

Quarterback Andy Dalton was a limited participant the last two Wednesdays with a right shoulder injury before returning to full participation in the Thursday and Friday practices.

Asked if shoulder soreness was contributing to his decreased numbers the last few weeks, Dalton said “no, I feel good.”
