08/22/17DBShawn WilliamsElbowQUESTIONABLEWilliams suffered a dislocated elbow in Saturday's preseason loss against the Chiefs, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Further tests will be needed, but if that diagnosis is true, the best case scenario is that he'll return in October, and it's possible that the injury is season-ending.

The Bengals are already thin at safety and might have to look outside the organization to add another safety. The team could be vulnerable against tight ends and pass-catching running backs as a result.

08/08/17TEC.J. UzomahAnkleQUESTIONABLEUzomah (ankle) isn't expected to play in Saturday's preseason game against the Chiefs, Paul Dehner Jr. of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Uzomah missed out on the preseason opener as well due to a severely sprained left ankle. Tyler Kroft should again see added snaps in his absence.

07/26/17RBBrandon WilsonKneeOUTWilson, the Bengals' sixth-round pick from the University of Houston, aggravated a knee injury during position drills and has been placed on the active/non-football injury list, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Wilson was working at safety instead of corner before the injury. He can practice whenever he's medically cleared and still counts against the Bengals' 90-man roster.

07/21/17DBAdam JonesSuspensionSUSPENDJones has officially been suspended for the first game of the regular season, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Jones and the team have been aware of the suspension since June, so this is more of a formality. The punishment is the result of the veteran pleading guilty to obstruction of official business following a January arrest. Bengals' owner Mike Brown gave him a public show of support, so do not expect his absence from the season opener to impact his projected starting status.
