Alex Cappa, Jonah Williams don’t practice for Bengals

The Bengals called right guard Alex Cappa and left tackle Jonah Williams week-to-week because of injuries heading into this week and Wednesday’s practice report brought little reason to think that either player will be ready to go against the Bills this Sunday.

Cappa and Williams both sat out the team’s first practice of the week. Cappa is dealing with an ankle injury that also kept him out against the Ravens in the Wild Card round and Williams left that 24-17 win with a dislocated kneecap.

Max Scharping played in place of Cappa and Jackson Carman took over for Williams. The Bengals are also starting Hakeem Adeniji at right tackle in place of La'el Collins.

Cornerback Tre Flowers (hamstring) and defensive tackle D.J. Reader (rest) were also out of practice. Cornerback Eli Apple (neck), defensive end Joseph Ossai (shoulder), and safety Michael Thomas (hamstring) were full participants in practice.

  1. It will be problematic if Cappa or Williams can’t go. Kind of surprised no one has been signed for depth.

  2. It’s ironic and unfortunate that the very area that was a concern coming into this season for the Bengals, the O-line, and that was addressed, is also the area getting hit hard by the injury bug.

    I imagine they will call Prince up from the practice squad. It stinks having these injuries this time of the season but the bright side is they do still have these young guys that got big game experience last season and then got to sit behind some good veteran leaders this season. I also think it helps that Carmen & Adeniji are playing their natural positions instead of guard and Scharping has 33 starts plus Playoff experience so they still have a decent chance. They are fortunate Von Miller won`t be there though.
