The Bengals will be without the services of linebackers Vontaze Burfict (knee) and Jayson DiManche (forearm) for Week 14 against Pittsburgh. Burfict and DiManche were the only two players ruled out for the game, but defensive end Margus Hunt (ankle) and wide receiver James Wright (knee) could join them come Sunday. Both Hunt and Wright were labeled as doubtful for the game.
Meanwhile, defensive tackle Domata Peko (elbow) was the only player on the report deemed questionable, while defensive end Robert Geathers (hip), wide receiver A.J. Green (thigh), tight end Ryan Hewitt (illness), cornerback Adam Jones (concussion), tackle Marshall Newhouse (hip) and guard/center Mike Pollak (knee) were listed as probable.
The team is otherwise healthy. Linebacker Nico Johnson (illness) has been deemed questionable while defensive end Robert Geathers (toe), safety George Iloka (groin), wideout Greg Little (illness) and offensive lineman Mike Pollak (knee) are probable.
Bernard wasn't in danger of missing this critical matchup with the division-leading Ravens. The defense will be without Rey Maualuga, but linebackers Vontaze Burfict (neck) and Emmanuel Lamur (shoulder), cornerback Leon Hall (back) and defensive ends Robert Geathers (toe) and Wallace Gilberry (eye) are all active. Offensive linemen Andre Smith (shoulder), Mike Pollak (knee) and Marshall Newhouse (back) are also active, as is tight end Kevin Brock (neck).
Outside of A.J. Green and Rey Maualuga, the Bengals enter Week 8 at home against Baltimore relatively healthy despite having 14 players on the final injury report for Sunday's game. Green (toe) was ruled doubtful, while Rey Maualuga (hamstring) was officially ruled out. Brandon Thompson (knee) was limited in practice and questionable.
