  • Bengals' Germaine Pratt: Officially clears protocols

    Pratt (illness) officially cleared the NFL's COVID-19 protocols Monday and is good to go for Week 18, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

    Pratt was activated off the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday in anticipation he'd play in Week 17, but he still tested positive Sunday morning and was ultimately downgraded to out. However, he has now cleared protocols after being sidelined for five days and will be available for the team's Week 18 showdown with the Browns. In his last four appearances, Pratt has totaled 39 tackles, one forced fumble and half a sack.

  • Bengals' Germaine Pratt: Not available Sunday

    The Bengals downgraded Pratt (COVID-19 protocols) to out for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Ben Baby of reports.

    According to Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic, Pratt tested negative for the virus Saturday and was reinstated from the reserve/COVID-19 list later that day in anticipation that he would clear the NFL's COVID-19 return-to-play protocol Sunday morning. However, Dehner relays that Pratt's second test didn't return negative, leaving him unavailable to play Sunday. Logan Wilson and Markus Bailey are expected to serve as Cincinnati's primary linebackers while the team typically keeps four defensive linemen and five defensive backs on the field.

  • Bengals' Germaine Pratt: Off reserve/COVID-19 list

    Pratt (undisclosed) was activated off the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.

    Pratt has developed into an integral part of the emerging Bengals defense and Saturday's designation should afford him the chance to build upon his recent streak of positive play. The middle linebacker leads the team with 39 tackles combined over the last four weeks.

  • Bengals' Germaine Pratt: Placed on COVID-19 list

    Pratt (undisclosed) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday.

    Pratt has played every single defensive snap over the last three games, so his potential absence would be a huge blow to the Bengals' defense. If he's unable to clear protocols ahead of the team's Week 17 contest against the Chiefs, then Keandre Jones and Austin Calitro would be likely candidates to fill the potential void at middle linebacker.

  • Bengals' Germaine Pratt: Another nine-tackle outing

    Pratt had nine tackles (four solo) and one pass breakup during Sunday's overtime loss to the Bengals.

    Pratt has racked up 70 total tackles through 13 appearances this season, to go with two pass breakups, an interception and two forced fumbles. He also has two fumble recoveries. Next on deck, the starting linebacker will travel to Denver for Week 15. He's played 95-plus percent of defensive snaps in back-to-back contests.

  • Bengals' Germaine Pratt: Strong impact in loss

    Pratt had nine tackles (three solo), a forced fumble and a fumble recovery during Sunday's 41-22 loss to the Chargers.

    Pratt played all but two defensive snaps and had his most productive game of the season Sunday. The 2019 third-round pick averages just over five tackles per contest and has limited IDP appeal.

  • Bengals' Germaine Pratt: Eight tackles in Thursday's win

    Pratt had eight tackles (five solo) and a tackle for loss in Thursday's 24-21 win over the Jaguars.

    Pratt picked up just one tackle against the Bears in Week 2, but he has produced either seven or eight tackles in each of the Bengals' other three games. The 2019 third-round pick played a season-high 79 percent of Cincinnati's defensive snaps in this one after hovering between 43 and 60 percent in each of the team's first three games. That extra usage can be attributed to facing a run-heavy Jaguars offense, and Pratt's workload will likely decrease against more pass-heavy teams.
