Friday Injury Report: Bengals at Green Bay Packers

New, comments

We've been discussing the loss of S Atari Bigby in a couple different posts this week, so that's familiar territory. My take is that although Bigby is better than his replacement, S Aaron Rouse, there's not much difference between the two.

RB Brandon Jackson is going to miss his 3rd straight game (going back to the preseason) because of the ankle injury he suffered during the Arizona game, which again will leave RB DeShawn Wynn as the only running back behind RB Ryan Grant.

LG Daryn Colledge and NT B.J. Raji both are listed as questionable, but it seems like Mike McCarthy expects them to play. They're both game time decisions. Everyone else on the injury list should be good to go.

Obviously the biggest name on the Bengals' injury report is No. 6 overall pick OL Andre Smith. After a lengthy holdout, he broke his foot in his first or second practice as a Bengal. LG Nate Livings started last week, but he's out with a knee injury and OL Evan Mathis is expected to start in his place. They'll get some depth back as OL Scott Kooistraborn in Madison, WI, returns for the first time in a while from his knee injury. CB David Jones would probably be the nickel cornerback, if he wasn't out with a broken foot, so the Bengals might struggle against multiple receiver sets. Those aren't household names, but the Bengals are missing two starters and a top backup.
