  • Bengals' Andre Smith: Out for remainder of game

    Smith (groin) has been ruled out for the rest of Sunday's game versus the 49ers, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.

    As a result, John Jerry will bump over and play as the team's left tackle.

  • Bengals' Clayton Fejedelem: Healthy for Week 2

    Fejedelem (ankle) will play in Sunday's game against the 49ers, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

    The depth safety spent much of the preseason nursing the ankle injury, and it's forced him to miss practice time during the regular season. Now that Fejedelem is officially active for Week 2, he's expected to slot into his normal depth role behind Brandon Wilson as the team's reserve safety.

  • Bengals' Pharoh Cooper: Not playing Sunday

    Cooper is a coach's decision inactive for Sunday's Week 2 matchup with San Francisco, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

    Cooper saw just eight offensive snaps in Week 1 and his absence in Week 2 is unlikely to have any impact on the Bengals' offense. Cooper is near the end of the depth chart and is likely to see a majority of his snaps on special teams when active.

  • Bengals' Trayveon Williams: Inactive Sunday

    Williams (foot) is inactive for Sunday's Week 2 matchup with the 49ers, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

    Williams was limited in practice throughout the week and had been questionable entering Sunday. The rookie running is near the back of the depth chart and isn't likely to see much of a role on offense when he does return to health.

  • Bengals' Joe Mixon: Good to go for Sunday

    Mixon (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

    Mixon only managed one limited practice as part of his Week 2 regimen while he managed the sprained right ankle, but the injury wont keep him out of commission for Sunday. While Mixon is likely in line to draw the start, the Bengals could choose to manage his workload carefully if the ankle is at all inhibiting him during the contest. If Mixon is restricted, Giovani Bernard would be in store for increased work both in the run game and on passing downs.

  • Bengals' Joe Mixon: Trending toward suiting up

    Mixon (ankle) took part in Saturday's team walk-through and the Bengals are optimistic he can play Sunday against the 49ers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Mixon's sprained right ankle prevented him from taking part in most of the Bengals' practices this week, but he'll get the green light to play Week 2 if he can make it through warmups Sunday without major issue. The 23-year-old's gameday status won't be formally established until the Bengals release their inactive list 90 minutes before the 1:00 p.m. EDT kickoff, but the expectation is that Mixon will draw the start for Cincinnati out of the backfield.

  • Bengals' Joe Mixon: Planning to play

    Mixon (ankle) is planning to play in Sunday's contest against the 49ers, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Mixon will test out his ankle Sunday morning in team warmups but it sounds like he intends on playing. He is coming off a season opener in which he only managed to record 10 rushing yards on six carries before having to exit the contest due to the ankle injury. It's also worth noting he missed the first two days of practice this week. If he does suit up, there's no telling how cautious the coaching staff will be with his reps.

  • Bengals' Cordy Glenn: Won't play Sunday

    Glenn (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's tilt with the 49ers.

    Glenn wasn't able to practice in any capacity this week. In his absence, Andre Smith will likely get the starting nod at left tackle Sunday.

  • Bengals' Clayton Fejedelem: Questionable for Sunday

    Fejedelem (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against San Francisco.

    Fejedelem was limited in practice each day this week. If the 26-year-old can't suit up Sunday, Brandon Wilson would be left as the Bengals' only reserve safety.

  • Bengals' Joe Mixon: Listed as questionable

    Mixon (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers after logging a limited practice Friday, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.

    Fortunately for those considering Mixon in Week 2 lineups, the Bengals kick off at 1:00 p.m. ET this weekend. If he ends up limited at all Sunday, or is deemed inactive, Giovani Bernard would see increased touches out of the team's backfield. Mixon's return to practice -- albeit in a limited capacity -- opens the door to the possibility of him toughing it out through his ankle issue at home versus San Francisco.

  • Bengals' Trayveon Williams: Questionable for Week 2

    Williams (foot) is listed as questionable for Sunday's clash with the 49ers, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.

    Williams was limited in practice each day this week. If the 21-year-old is able to suit up for Sunday's game, he would likely only provide depth for the backfield, which may be necessary for Cincinnati if Joe Mixon (ankle) -- who's also considered questionable for Sunday -- ends up sitting out.

  • Bengals' Joe Mixon: Participating in walkthrough Friday

    Mixon (ankle) is taking part in Friday's walkthrough, Tyler Dragon of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    The 23-year-old was held out from the first two practices of the week after spraining his right ankle in the season opener, so his participation in Friday's session -- even if it's just a walkthrough -- is a positive sign. Mixon's status for Week 2 should receive additional clarity when the Bengals release their official injury report later in the day.

  • Bengals' Jessie Bates: Ready to rock

    Bates (wrist) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.

    Bates was limited in practice to begin the week and now appears back to full health. The second-year pro is primed for his usual starting role in Cincinnati's secondary Week 2 and will work to contain San Francisco's aerial attack.

  • Bengals' A.J. Green: Works out on side Thursday

    Green (ankle) worked out on a side field during the portion of Thursday's practice open to the media, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.

    Per Baby, this marked Green's first appearance at a session since undergoing surgery on torn ligaments in his left ankle in late July. It also comes just days after shedding his walking boot. There remains no precise timetable for a return to action, but Green clearly is making progress in his recovery. While he goes through the later stages of rehab, the Bengals' receiving corps will continue to be headed by Tyler Boyd and John Ross.

  • Bengals' Joe Mixon: Still not practicing

    Mixon (ankle) was held out of Thursday's practice, Tyler Dragon of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Mixon emerged from Week 1 with a right ankle injury, and after an MRI came back clean, he was deemed "day-to-day" by coach Zac Taylor. That said, Mixon has yet to take the practice field this week, leaving him with one session to get in some reps before Sunday's game against the 49ers. If Mixon is unable to go, Giovani Bernard will lead the Bengals' backfield.

  • Bengals' Auden Tate: Logs full practice

    Tate (knee) was listed as a full participant for Wednesday's practice, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

    Tate was unable to make his 2019 debut in Week 1 while nursing the knee injury, but as evidenced by this news, is on track to return for Sunday's game against the 49ers. Even though he's healthy, the Florida State product is buried at the bottom of the Bengals' depth chart, so his return likely won't impact the offense too much.

  • Bengals' Jessie Bates: Dealing with wrist issue

    Bates (wrist) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.

    Bates practicing in some capacity with this new injury is a positive sign that he'll be able to play Sunday versus the 49ers. The second-year pro has massive value for the team, as he recorded 111 tackles, seven pass breakups and three interceptions in his rookie year. If Bates isn't able to shake this issue, however, Brandon Wilson will take over as the team's starting free safety.
