As the Bengals brace for a visit from the Packers, the team that beat the Steelers on Monday night is dealing with a cluster of injuries.

Most notably, running back Giovani Bernard has been listed for the first time this week with a hamstring injury.  Bernard, a second-round rookie who scored a pair of touchdowns in Week Two, participated on a limited basis.

Cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick also has a hamstring injury; it kept him out of practice both days.  Cornerback Adam Jones has an abdominal problem that caused him to miss practice on Wednesday.  He returned to practice on a limited basis on Thursday.

Also on Thursday’s list was tackle Anthony Collins (knee; did not participate); defensive end Carlos Dunlap (thigh; limited); cornerback Brandon Ghee (concussion; did not participate); defensive end Wallace Gilberry (knee; limited); receiver Marvin Jones (foot; did not participate); safety Jeromy Miles (hamstring; did not participate); guard Mike Pollak (knee; did not participate); tight end Alex Smith (illness; limited).

The best news for the Bengals is that left tackle Andrew Whitworth (knee) has exited the injury report after returning to action against the Steelers.

  1. Packers vs Bengals. Two really good teams with some bad luck right now regarding nagging injuries. I suppose we’ll see who has the best backups. Should be a really good game regardless.

  2. Rodgers, Finely, Cobb, Nelson, and Jones are going to feast on that nicked up secondary.

    Screen pass dumps to slow the inside pass rush.

    Packers d is a little nicked up but hung tough with SF and took apart the REDSKINS until garbage time.

  3. Going to be a good game, both teams will move the ball freely. I like the more complete football team the Bengals to keep it close but Bengals run game to be the difference and keep Rodgers off the field. I see the Bengals winning a close one.

    If giving up 34 points is hanging tough then you’re right. I think the key to the game is going to be the Packers Oline vs Cincy’s front 7. Their 3rd and 4th corners are nicked up but if a QB doesn’t have time to throw he can’t exploit those issues.

    Dre kirk, another bama bust on our hands, he and andre smith are stealing money

    ————————–
    Andre Smith is one of if not the best RT in the league.

  6. Aaron Rodgers will have a hard time with the Bengals d line I think a 4 sack game for the Bengals and the d clamps down on the packers offense an lets not forget the packers defense is very susceptible to the run game 49ers ran all over them with gore BGE is the same kind of runner

  7. I dont see any way that Cincinnati can even stay within 10 points of Green Bay. Aaron Rodgers will be able to put up another 350+ this week. I dont see Green Bay running that much agains a talented defensive line. However the secondary is bad, another monster game by Rodgers is going to happen.
    Green Bay managed to put up 28 on a 49ers team with much more talent.

    31-20 Packers after a late score by The Bengals.

    Im really not sure what you are talking about my friend… The Packers gave up only 90 total rushing yards to the 49ers during the week 1 matchup. Thats 90 yards!!! 90 Yards does not mean run all over to me.
