Iloka (shoulder) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Lions.
Iloka hurt his shoulder last week in Minnesota. However, he didn't miss a day of practice this week and should be ready to assume his usual heavy workload.
Iloka injured his shoulder during Sunday's game against the Vikings and is doubtful to return, Richard Skinner of WKRC-TV reports.
Iloka's absence will add to injury issues in the Bengals' secondary. He has 68 tackles (45 solo) and one interception through 13 games. Josh Shaw and Clayton Fejedelem likely will see increases in defensive snaps in Iloka's absence.
Iloka's one-game suspension was overturned Wednesday in an appeal, making the safety eligible to play Sunday against the Bears.
Iloka was handed the ban from the NFL after driving his head into the helmet of Steelers wideout Antonio Brown while attempting to break up a touchdown reception in the Bengals' 23-20 loss Monday. Though he'll be on the field in Week 14, Iloka was still levied a $36,464.50 fine for the illegal hit.
