The Cincinnati Bengals’ inability to generate pass pressure off the edge through two games has exposed an already vulnerable secondary as one of the league’s poorest units. Joe Flacco of the Ravens and previously-overwhelmed rookie Brandon Weeden of the Browns have had their way with Cincinnati’s pass defense.
But the Bengals may soon be getting a shot in the arm.
Per Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer, defensive end Carlos Dunlap returned to the practice field on Wednesday after missing the first two games with a knee injury. Dunlap has been sidelined by a knee sprain since the preseason opener. According to Reedy, Dunlap is “on track to play” in Week Three against the Washington Redskins.
A third-year player out of Florida, Dunlap has 14 sacks in his first 24 NFL games.
