Bengals coach Zac Taylor said Monday that it would be “tough” for right guard Alex Cappa to play this week.

On Wednesday, Taylor made it official: Cappa will not play against the Ravens.

Cappa injured his left ankle in the Week 18 victory over the Ravens, and he was seen at Wednesday’s practice on a scooter and wearing a walking boot.

Max Scharping is expected to take Cappa’s place.

Scharping has not started a game this season and has played only 30 snaps, but he made 11 starts the past three seasons with the Texans.

The Bengals also were without receiver Tee Higgins, who missed practice with an illness.

Cornerback Cam Taylor-Britt (groin) was the only other player on the practice report. He was limited.

  1. If Huntley plays they have no shot. Brown was as bad as it gets, and the Bungles were trying their best to blow out Baltimore who played with a pre-season offense and only won by two scores.

  2. O-line still below average when they face a good D. Cappa is solid not elite but solid and will be missed. Burrow can’t miss those deep throws and WRs have to not drop anything and they should be fine.
