  • Bengals' Markus Bailey: Will play Sunday

    Bailey (knee) is active Sunday against the Ravens, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic reports.

    Bailey seemed to be trending toward an inactive designation after not practicing Friday; however, the Purdue product will be suiting up for the Week 2 contest. He'll help provide depth at linebacker for the Bengals.

  • Bengals' Markus Bailey: Trending toward missing Sunday

    Bailey (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game versus the Ravens.

    After missing practice Friday, Bailey seems to be on the doubtful end of the questionable designation. If he's forced to sit out in Week 2, Joe Bachie could be a candidate to rotate in occasionally at linebacker.

  • Bengals' Markus Bailey: Pressed into defensive duty

    Bailey played 20 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Falcons, recording four tackles.

    Bailey is primarily a special teams player, having played just six defensive snaps all season prior to Week 7. The 2020 seventh-rounder saw more reps on defense last year when Logan Wilson was out, and Wilson's injury this year is the proximate cause for his return this year.

  • Bengals' Markus Bailey: Logs another limited practice

    Bailey (neck) is questionable for Sunday against the Broncos.

    Bailey has logged three straight limited practices heading into Sunday. The second-year linebacker missed the Bengals' Week 14 contest against the 49ers with the injury. With Logan Wilson out with a shoulder injury and Clay Johnston on the reserve/COVID-19 list, the Bengals could be thin at linebacker Sunday.

  • Bengals' Markus Bailey: Out versus 49ers

    Bailey (neck) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's matchup with the 49ers, Ben Baby of reports.

    Bailey exited last week's loss to the Chargers afters suffering a stinger. While he originally drew a questionable designation for Week 14, the team has since opted to err on the side of caution by ruling him out. In his absence, Joe Bachie figures to see an increased role on on the defense.

  • Bengals' Markus Bailey: Injury not considered serious

    Bailey (shoulder) isn't believed to be dealing with a serious injury following Sunday's loss to the Chargers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    While Bailey was unable to return to Sunday's game after exiting with a shoulder issue in the first half, he's expected to be fine after being diagnosed with a stinger. The Bengals could monitor the 24-year-old's workload in practice this week, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him play Sunday against the 49ers.
