Dunlap (hip) didn't participate in practice Wednesday, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports. Dunlap has been able to stay relatively healthy this season, playing in all of the Bengals' 11 games and logging at least 50 defensive snaps in all but two of them. Whether Dunlap practices later this week -- and to what capacity -- will help clear things up for his gameday status.
Dunlap recorded five tackles (four solo), including two sacks, in Sunday's win over Tampa Bay. Dunlap's two sacks Sunday give him seven on the year, putting him on pace to best his career high (13.5) from 2015. He'll look to continue his quality play against the Saints in Week 10 after Cincinnati's Week 9 bye.
Dunlap recorded two tackles (one solo), including a sack, in Sunday's loss to Kansas City. Dunlap's sack gives him five on the season. He's played well despite Cincinnati's struggles as a team. Looking ahead, he and the Bengals will take on the Buccaneers in Week 8.
Dunlap recorded three tackles (two solo), including a sack, and forced a fumble in Sunday's win over Miami. Dunlap has sacks in three straight games and four sacks on the year. He's proving to be a force along the Bengals' defensive line and a consistent IDP option. He'll be looking to continue his strong play against the division-rival Steelers in Week 6.
Dunlap was the center of a controversy Sunday against the Colts for his hit against Andrew Luck that was ruled roughing the passer due to his, "full body weight on top of Luck," as Lance McAlister of WLW 700 reports. This was the second of two weak penalties called against Dunlap (the other where he hit Luck on the foot as part of a pass rush, that was ruled a late hit). The first penalty allowed for the Colts to kick a field goal right before halftime, the latter he essentially wiped out by recording another sack that took the Colts deep enough that they missed the ensuing field goal attempt.
