Bengals at Vikings injury report: Joe Mixon questionable; Kyle Rudolph doubtful

Bengals at Vikings injury report: Joe Mixon questionable; Kyle Rudolph doubtful

Both the Bengals and Vikings will have key players sidelined for this matchup. The Bengals could be facing the same issues they had last week again on defense. Vontaze Burfict and Nick Vigil will miss Sunday’s game against the Vikings after being ruled out on Friday. The Bengals also placed Kevin Minter on Injured Reserve after suffering a hamstring injury. The team called up Brandon Bell from their practice squad to replace him on the active roster. This will leave the Bengals with only Vincent Rey, Jordan Evans and Hardy Nickerson at linebacker. Looking on the bright side, we at least...

SB Nation has Bengals taking a linebacker at pick No. 9

SB Nation projects the Bengals selecting linebacker Roquan Smith out of Georgia in the first round. Are there better options though? The Bengals look like they will have plenty of options with their first round pick in the upcoming draft. That isn’t necessarily a compliment or a good thing. The Bengals have a pretty talented roster overall, but they have pretty defined blind spots. One of those were on full display against the Bears. Linebackers were one of the biggest issues on defense. They struggled at getting to ball carriers and in coverage. Vontaze Burfict and Nick Vigil were out...

Bengals at Vikings injury report: Joe Mixon returns; Vontaze Burfict still out

Bengals at Vikings injury report: Joe Mixon returns; Vontaze Burfict still out

The Bengals may have Joe Mixon in Minnesota, but don’t expect Vontaze Burfict to suit up. The Cincinnati Bengals may have Joe Mixon back for their matchup with the Minnesota Vikings. After missing Wednesday’s session, Mixon was able to return for a limited session on Thursday. He probably needs to get in a full session on Friday to have any chance of playing, even though Friday is more of a walkthrough. Darqueze Dennard was also able to return on Thursday for a limited session. His knee issue appears to be more a pain tolerance issue that the team is managing. Dennard has dealt with...

Bengals at Vikings injury report: Joe Mixon and Vontaze Burfict still sidelined

The Bengals may be without their star rookie against a vaunted Vikings defense. The Cincinnati Bengals are getting healthier, but they’ve still got several guys sidelined ahead of their clash with the Minnesota Vikings. That includes three players who missed Week 13 with concussions, including Joe Mixon, Dre Kirkpatrick and Vontaze Burfict. That’s a good sign all three are very iffy for Sunday, as it appears they have not yet cleared the league’s concussion protocol. Also sitting out Wednesday were tight end Tyler Kroft (hand), linebacker Nick Vigil (ankle), cornerback Darqeuze...

JuJu Smith-Schuster won’t abandon physical brand of football after Burfict hit

JuJu Smith-Schuster won’t abandon physical brand of football after Burfict hit

After serving a one-game suspension for a crushing block on Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict, Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster says he will still play a physical brand of football. For a rookie, when you make a significant play for your team and get punished for it, you might think twice about attempting such a play in the future. This certainly could be true for Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster who is coming off a one-game suspension for his vicious block on Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict in the team’s Week 13 win on Monday Night Football. Nonetheless, upon his return,...

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...

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...

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...
