Bengals’ snap count distribution vs Bears: Bench gets plenty of run

Bengals’ snap count distribution vs Bears: Bench gets plenty of run

With all the injuries the Bengals had coming into the game, the Bengals defense was forced to play a lot of players who don’t normally get extensive snaps. It was no secret the Cincinnati Bengals were shorthanded coming into their Week 14 matchup with the Chicago Bears. Several regular starters like Vontaze Burfict, Joe Mixon, Shawn Williams, Dre Kirkpatrick and Adam Jones were out for this game. This put a new meaning to the phrase “next man up.” While injuries do happen, it is hard for a team to go out there and essentially replace more than half of their defense, and we saw just...

Report: PFT claims Bengals considered using John Ross as a defensive back

Report: PFT claims Bengals considered using John Ross as a defensive back

No, this is not a joke, but it may help explain the mystery of John Ross landing on IR. Going into Week 14, the Cincinnati Bengals’ secondary was as banged up as just about any NFL team. Before they even faced the Chicago Bears, Cincinnati had ruled out Shawn Williams, Dre Kirkpatrick and Adam Jones on defense, while Darqueze Dennard was questionable to play with a lingering knee injury. That’s four starting defensive backs, so you can imagine the Bengals were pretty desperate for bodies there going into Sunday’s clash with the Bears. That’s where John Ross comes into play. The...

Carlos Dunlap admits he’s embarrassed by Bengals’ loss to Bears

Carlos Dunlap admits he’s embarrassed by Bengals’ loss to Bears

The Bengals’ season is pretty much over after a 33-7 loss to the NFL’s worst offense. The Bengals’ 33-7 loss to the Bears can best be described as embarrassing. The Bears came into the game with the 32nd ranked defense (just one better than the Bengals who rank 31st) and finished with 271 passing yards and 232 rushing yards, totaling 503 yards in the game. Hello, Bengals defense. Are you there? They were not. Vontaze Burfict, Adam Jones (who’s now on Injured Reserve), Dre Kirkpatrick, Nick Vigil and Shawn Williams missed the game. Geno Atkins played hurt and made minimal appearances...

Bengals vs Bears: Odds, expert picks, analysis, predictions for NFL Week 14

The Bengals are viewed as overwhelming favorites against the Bears on Sunday. The Bengals will be looking to shake off their loss to the Steelers with a trip from the Bears to town. These two teams don’t see each other that much at all. In fact they seem to only meet every four years. The Bengals are dealing with injuries across their defense with players like Vontaze Burfict, Adam Jones, Darqueze Dennard, Dre Kirkpatrick and Shawn WIlliams all dealing with injuries. Whether they practice on Friday should have a huge impact on this game. The Bears have lost five games in a row. Including...

Bears at Bengals injury report: Vontaze Burfict, Joe Mixon among 6 ruled out; Geno Atkins questionable

The Bengals will not have several key players on both sides of the ball this Sunday. The Cincinnati Bengals will be down several starters when they host the Chicago Bears on Sunday. On Friday, Cincinnati ruled out Joe Mixon, Vontaze Burfict, Dre Kirkpatrick, Adam Jones, Shawn Williams and Nick Vigil. All of those players were expected to miss this game, especially the guys dealing with concussions suffered in Monday’s loss to the Steelers (Mixon, Burfict and Kirkpatrick). The Bengals are also listing Geno Atkins as questionable to play this week due to a toe injury that popped up in...

Bengals vs Bears 2017: Game time, TV schedule, online stream, odds, radio, announcers, more

How to watch the Bengals take on the Bears this Sunday. The Cincinnati Bengals will be facing the Chicago Bears on Sunday, and their last thread of hope for the playoffs hang in the balance. The Bears have nothing left to play for at (3-9) other than pride and officially ending the Bengals season. The Bengals could be very short-handed on Sunday if players like Joe Mixon, Vontaze Burfict and Dre Kirkpatrick don’t progress through concussion protocol. Also, Adam Jones and Darqueze Dennard didn’t practice on Wednesday either. Shawn Williams also hasn’t returned to practice either....

NFL Week 14 injury report: 8 starters miss Bengals’ Thursday practice

NFL Week 14 injury report: 8 starters miss Bengals’ Thursday practice

Vontaze Burfict is among a host of Bengals still sitting out and iffy to play vs the Bears on Sunday. The Cincinnati Bengals still have a wealth of defensive starters unlikely to play Sunday versus the Chicago Bears. On Thursday, we saw Darqueze Dennard, Adam Jones, Shawn Williams, Dre Kirkpatrick, Nick Vigil and Vontaze Burfict all miss their second-straight session. it’s possible that all of them miss Sunday, which would be devastating to the secondary and linebackers. Also missing Thursday was Geno Atkins with a toe injury. Losing him in addition to the above-mentioned players would...

Steelers at Bengals injury report: Mike Mitchell doubtful; Shawn Williams out; Antonio Brown questionable

Michael Johnson is also questionable to play for the Bengals. As expected, the Cincinnati Bengals will be without several defensive starters against the Pittsburgh Steelers. On Saturday, the team ruled out Nick Vigil, Vincent Rey and Shawn Williams. Vigil had been starting at strongside linebacker, and replacing him would have likely been Rey if he were healthy. Now, it looks like rookie Jordan Evans may get the starting nod, even though the Bengals play mostly nickel defenses without that third linebacker. At safety, Clayton Fejedelem is in line to start, though we may see a lot of Josh...

Steelers at Bengals injury report: Mike Mitchell out; Cedric Ogbuehi limited

The Bengals are pretty healthy going into this rivalry matchup, but the Steelers may not have their star safety able to play. The Cincinnati Bengals held their first official pre-Steelers practice on Thursday. Three starters were unable to practice, including Nick Vigil, Vincent Rey and Shawn Williams. Rey and Williams are still battling hamstring injuries that could keep them sidelined for Monday’s big game. Vigil is also sitting out after suffering an ankle injury in Sunday’s win over Cleveland. All three players look very iffy for Monday, but the good news is the Bengals have...

The Bengals will have Darqueze Dennard against the Browns, but John Ross is a healthy scratch. The Cincinnati Bengals have announced their inactives list for Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns.

Browns at Bengals injury report: Shawn Williams out; Darqueze Dennard questionable

The Bengals will be without starting safety Shawn Williams when the Browns come to Paul Brown Stadium. The Cincinnati Bengals will be without at least two starting defenders in Week 12, but another pair of starters are set to return versus the Cleveland Browns. On Friday, Cincinnati ruled out starters Shawn Williams and Vincent Rey. However, Adam Jones and Kevin Minter are no longer listed on the injury report, indicating they’ll make their returns on Sunday. Jones missed Week 11 while recovering from a concussion. Minter has missed the last month of action due to an elbow injury. Their...

Browns at Bengals injury report: Darqueze Dennard still out; Clint Boling limited again

The Bengals have several starters uncertain for Sunday. The Cincinnati Bengals are banged up as they prepare for the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. Starting cornerback Darqueze Dennard may very well be sitting this one out, as he’s now missed two-straight practices after being sidelined on Thursday. A knee injury continues to plague the starting cornerback, but the good news is William Jackson and Adam Jones are both practicing fully. Jones and Jackson missed Week 11 while Dennard started, so the script may get flipped in Week 12. Vincent Rey and Shawn Williams also sat out again on...

Browns at Bengals injury report: Dre Kirkpatrick and Darqueze Dennard sidelined

The Bengals were without two starting cornerbacks on Wednesday. The Cincinnati Bengals were back on the practice field on Wednesday as they prepare for the Cleveland Browns. Among the players not participating was the hero of Sunday’s win at Denver, Dre Kirkpatrick, who sat out for unknown reasons. Perhaps he’s still winded from his 101-yard interception return against the Broncos. On more serious notes, Cincinnati was without Shawn Williams and Vincent Rey, both of whom are dealing with hamstring injuries that forced them from Sunday’s win. Williams has already missed time due to...
