The Bengals will suit up just three cornerbacks today, with Nate Clements, Jason Allen, Dre Kirkpatrick and Leon Hall inactive for today’s game against the Jaguars.
That leaves just Terence Newman, Adam Jones and Chris Lewis-Harris at the position.
Then again, it’s the Jaguars, so that might not be that big of a deal. Jags quarterback Blaine Gabbert threw an 80-yard game-winning touchdown last week, but that more than doubled his passing yards for the day prior to that.
Also inactive for the Bengals are running back Bernard Scott, linebacker Roddrick Muckelroy and wide receiver Ryan Whalen.
The Jaguars are getting right tackle Cam Bradfield and left guard Eben Britton back today, along with running back Rashad Jennings.
The Jaguars inactives include: Defensive tackle Jeris Pendlton, offensive linemen Herb Taylor and Daniel Baldridge, tight end Maurice Stovall, cornerback Kevin Rutland and linebacker Brandon Marshall, along with injured linebacker Daryl Smith and defensive end George Selvie.
