Bengals Injury Report: Jones And Fisher Doubtful, Hall Questionable Sunday

The Cincinnati Bengals have had the luck of health for most of the season. But as we enter the stretch run, they’re experiencing their first wave of injuries.

Cornerback Adam Jones headlines the injury report, officially listed as doubtful with a foot injury for Sunday’s AFC North matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Joining him on the doubtful side is rookie offensive tackle Jake Fisher with a concussion. Jones had been the Bengals’ starting right corner for the year, playing at a high level. Fisher is an underrated loss. He had gotten a lot of run as a tackle eligible player and has even been targeted in the end zone each of the last two weeks.

WR Mario Alford, CB Leon Hall (back), and safety George Iloka (back) are all listed as questionable. Hall was a full participant Friday, a positive sign, especially with Jones out. Hall had been serving as the team’s nickel corner. If Iloka can’t play, he’ll be replaced by Shawn Williams, who filled in for him last week. Iloka was limited Friday.

Tyler Eifert is probable after missing last week with a neck injury. Clint Boling, Dre Kirkpatrik, Josh Shaw, and Ryan Hewitt all join him as probable.

    Hopefully someone can add Burfict to their injury list during the game…

    That’s a lot of question marks on their D. Steelers better stay on fire and light these guys up.

    Or Marvin Lewis pulling a belicheat

    Would love to see Nix blast him from the blind side somehow and knock him out!! Of course, no injury, just good clean hard hit. Lol

    This is the sternest test of the year for our O-Line. Hopefully they can keep Ben upright so he can take advantage of the depleted secondary.

  • PapaJuju

    Hmm. Blind side hits are not good clean hits anymore.

  • William Weaver

    Oh well.. Lol

    Keep their banged up D on the field and grind em down. Keeps the ball away from their O and by the 4th quarter they’re gassing. REally hoping we can hang a 40 burger on these guys.
