Thursday injury report: Lamar Jackson misses practice; Dre Kirkpatrick returns

Thursday injury report: Lamar Jackson misses practice; Dre Kirkpatrick returns

The Ravens are running out of options at quarterback to play against the Bengals, who are running out of options at wide receiver. The Bengals’ path to sweeping the Ravens this season may be getting a little bit easier. Backup quarterback Lamar Jackson missed today’s practice with what’s being called a stomach issue per Adam Schefter. As a result, third-string quarterback Robert Griffin III was the only quarterback to practice. A stomach issue sidelined Lamar Jackson from today’s practice, per source. Robert Griffin III was the lone healthy Ravens’ QB at practice today.—...

Bengals CB Dre Kirkpatrick suffers concussion vs. Saints

Bengals CB Dre Kirkpatrick suffers concussion vs. Saints

Another Bengals starter goes down. The Bengals have suffered their first major injury of the day vs. the Saints. It came late in the second quarter when Dre Kirkpatrick was forced from the game with what has since been reported as a concussion. He has already been ruled out, and he’ll now enter the league’s concussion protocol, which could mean he misses next week vs. the Ravens. This is really bad news for a Bengals defense with starters dropping like flies. Vontaze Burfict, Darqueze Dennard, Carl Lawson and Nick Vigil are already out, so losing Kirkpatrick means as many as six...

Cincinnati Bengals notes: What the defense can't do against the New Orleans Saints

Dre Kirkpatrick had an amusing phrase for what the Bengals defense cant do against the New Orleans Saints.

Dre Kirkpatrick on defensive effort: “At the end of the day, we can do better. I know we can.”

Dre Kirkpatrick on defensive effort: “At the end of the day, we can do better. I know we can.”

Cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick is happy to come away with the win, but knows the unit needs to get better. After a pair of tough losses and some close wins that caused a lot of stress inside and out of Paul Brown Stadium, the Bengals finally looked to be in control of a game this weekend. That is of course until the Buccaneers found a bit of magic offensively. A bit of Fitz-magic. After rookie safety Jessie Bates returned Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston’s fourth interception for a touchdown, the visiting team benched him in favor of former Bengal and Harvard Crimson (anyone’s guess...

Evaluating the success of the Bengals cornerbacks shadowing DeSean Jackson and Mike Evans

Evaluating the success of the Bengals cornerbacks shadowing DeSean Jackson and Mike Evans

The Bengals acted out of character on Sunday defensively. Will it remain in the game plan moving forward? Prior to Sunday, Bengals cornerback William Jackson told WKRC’s Richard Skinner that he would be shadowing Buccaneers wide receiver DeSean Jackson when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers came to Paul Brown Stadium. This is something many teams do to put their best cornerback on an opposing team’s best receiver. But, it’s not something the Bengals have often done. Primarily, the Bengals simply play Jackson on the right, with Dre Kirkpatrick on the left and Darqueze Dennard in the slot. The...

Bengals CB Dre Kirkpatrick injures achilles vs. Buccaneers

Bengals CB Dre Kirkpatrick injures achilles vs. Buccaneers

This is terrible news for a Bengals secondary that’s already badly banged up. The Bengals’ defense just took another hit as cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick suffered an achilles injury and is doubtful to return versus the Buccaneers. This is terrible news for a Bengals defense that’s badly banged up and is already without slot cornerback Darqueze Dennard. If there’s any bright side, it’s that the Bengals have a Week 9 bye. The Bengals also lost defensive end Carl Lawson and left guard Clint Boling versus the Buccaneers. C.J. Uzomah was also being evaluated for a shoulder injury. The...

William Jackson may be going up against Bucs WR DeSean Jackson all Sunday long

William Jackson may be going up against Bucs WR DeSean Jackson all Sunday long

Conflicting reports about whether the Bengals will break their tendency by having their top cornerback shadow a specific receiver William Jackson is a rising star in the NFL. People often look forward to his match-ups against wide receivers like Antonio Brown and Julio Jones, but the fact is the Bengals do not use Jackson to shut down any particular wide receiver. Jackson plays right comeback while Dre Kirkpatrick plays left cornerback, and when healthy, Darqueze Dennard plays in the slot. That may be changing this weekend. Jackson told WKRC’s Richard Skinner that he will be shadowing...

Thursday injury report: Dre Kirkpatrick returns; John Ross still out

Thursday injury report: Dre Kirkpatrick returns; John Ross still out

Dre Kirkpatrick was among several injured Bengals who returned to practice Wednesday. The Bengals are getting healthier, but there were still a host of players unable to practice on Thursday. The ones who did return included Dre Kirkpatrick (Achilles), Clark Harris (concussion), Jake Fisher (back) and Bobby Hart (back). Of that group, Harris was the only one to not get in a full session, as he was limited and remains iffy for Sunday. The big name there is Kirkpatrick, who has a big test ahead of him with Tampa Bay featuring Mike Evans and DeSean Jackson at wide receiver. Giovani Bernard...

Wednesday injury report: Vontaze Burfict, Dre Kirkpatrick among 10 players held out

Wednesday injury report: Vontaze Burfict, Dre Kirkpatrick among 10 players held out

The Bengals can’t catch a break on the injury front right now. Ten players were unable to practice for the Bengals on Wednesday as they prepare for the Buccaneers. Among them were Vontaze Burfict (hip), Darqueze Dennard (sternoclavicular), John Ross (groin), Nick Vigil (knee), Tyler Kroft (foot), Giovani Bernard (knee), Bobby Hart (back) and Dre Kirkpatrick (Achilles). Of that group, Bernard, Vigil, Dennard and Kroft missed last week and are expected to be sidelined again this week. All of them are expected to return sometime after the Week 9 bye, but it’s untelling who among them...
