Bengals @ Bucs Preseason Game 2


Recommended Posts

Injury report from hobs:

TAMPA _ The Bengals’ Not Expected To Play List grew a little longer than last week when head coach Marvin Lewis ruled out a dozen players for the preseason’s second game Monday night against the Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium.

For the second straight game, starting right end Michael Johnson (knee), rookie backup left tackle Jake Fisher (shoulder), and starting right tackle Andre Smith (unknown) weren’t expected to play. Also shelved again were backup wide receiver Onterio McCalebb (hamstring) and backup guard Trey Hopkins (leg).

A slate of players who were either injured against the Giants or during practice last week also weren’t expected to play: defensive tackle Pat Sims (thigh), cornerbacks Darqueze Dennard (hamstring) and Brandon Ghee (hamstring), as well as wide receiver Tevin Reese (hamstring).

Plus, the three players yet to be activated from the physically unable to perform list (PUP) as they rehab knee injuries, starting WILL linebacker Vontaze Burfict, backup linebacker Sean Porter, and backup left tackle Cedric Ogbuehi, also weren’t expected to play.

Rookie Tom Obarski is expected to make at least most of the kicks as Mike Nugent recovers from a sore muscle. Wallace Gilberry got the nod for Michael Johnson at right end and Eric Winston started for Andre Smith at right tackle.
