  • Bengals' Markus Bailey: Will play Sunday

    Bailey (neck) is active Sunday against the Broncos, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

    Bailey was able to log three straight limited practices this week, after missing Week 14 against the 49ers. The second-year line backer will be asked to step up with Logan Wilson (shoulder) out Sunday against the Broncos.

  • 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 ESPN.com 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.

  • Bengals' Markus Bailey: Done for Sunday

    Bailey (shoulder) will not return Sunday against the Chargers.

    Bailey left in the first half with the injury. Primarily a contributor on special teams, his absence is magnified by the early departure of Logan Wilson, who also suffered a shoulder injury. The Bengals will now try to piece together a linebacker unit to get through the rest of their game Sunday against the Chargers.

  • Bengals' Markus Bailey: Injures shoulder Sunday

    Bailey (shoulder) is questionable to return Sunday against the Chargers.

    Bailey left the Bengals' Week 13 contest in the first half after suffering a shoulder injury. He has mostly operated on special teams, so his absence shouldn't impact Cincinnati's defensive rotations.

  • Bengals' Markus Bailey: Back on roster

    Bailey was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday.

    Assuming he feels healthy enough to suit up Sunday in Vegas, Bailey could slide into a starting linebacker role in place of the injured Akeem Davis-Gaither (foot). Bailey previously occupied a reserve role, totaling four tackles (three solo) and a pass defensed through nine games.

  • Bengals' Markus Bailey: Hopeful to return this week

    Bailey could come off the COVID-19 list this week, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Bailey's return would be much needed coming out of the bye week with the recent loss of Akeem Davis-Gaither (foot) to IR. The 2020 seventh-round selection would be a prime candidate to move into a starting role, or at the very least see a bump in snaps.

  • Bengals' Markus Bailey: Added to COVID list

    Bailey (undisclosed) has been placed on the Bengals' reserve/COVID-19 list.

    It is unclear whether Bailey has actually tested positive or just had close contact with someone who has. The Bengals are entering their bye week, so he will have an extra week to recover before the team takes on the Raiders in Week 11.

  • Bengals' Markus Bailey: Ready for Week 2

    Bailey is active for Sunday's Week 2 contest against the Bears, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic reports.

    Bailey was questionable entering the team's second game due to a knee injury. However, after logging limited practices throughout the week, he'll be ready to go and should serve as depth amongst the Bengals' linebacker corps.

  • Bengals' Markus Bailey: Active against Giants

    Bailey (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game versus the Giants, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.

    Bailey shook off a hamstring injury to play in Sunday's contest. The rookie seventh-round pick has played just four snaps on defense this season, as most of his contributions have been on special-teams coverage.

  • Bengals' Markus Bailey: Passes physical

    Bailey passed his physical and has come off the Bengals' active/non-football injury list, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

    Bailey is bouncing from an ACL tear that he sustained last September. Now that he's been cleared for action, the 2020 seventh-rounder will look to secure a depth role in the Bengals' linebacking corps.

  • Bengals' Markus Bailey: Placed on NFI list

    The Bengals placed Bailey (knee) on the active/non-football injury list Monday, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

    Bailey expressed optimism back in May that he'd gain medical clearance in time to participate in training camp, but it looks as though he isn't quite ready to practice. The rookie seventh-round pick suffered a torn ACL last September.

  • Bengals' Markus Bailey: On track for preseason

    Bailey (knee) said Thursday that he expects to receive medical clearance in time to participate without restriction in preseason drills, Alex Marvez of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

    Bailey is recovering from an ACL tear sustained in September, but it looks as though he's on track for Week 1, barring any setbacks. The rookie seventh-round pick showcased big-play ability from 2016-18 at Purdue, where he averaged 100-plus tackles per season while racking up a total of 16.5 sacks.

  • Bengals' Markus Bailey: Cincinnati secures in seventh

    The Bengals selected Bailey (knee) in the seventh round of the 2020 NFL Draft, 215th overall.

    Bailey (6-foot, 235) was a standout linebacker for Purdue before he suffered an ACL tear in September, which prevented him from doing any athletic testing before the draft. Not only did he average triple-digit tackles per season from 2016 through 2018, but Bailey made big plays as a blitzer and in coverage over that span, accumulating 16.5 sacks and six interceptions in those three years.
