Bengals at Panthers injury report: Preston Brown and Michael Johnson questionable

Postby linchao » Wed Nov 28, 2018 2:40 am

The final injury reports are coming out , and both the Bengals and Panthers will be missing key players on Sunday. For the Bengals, there aren’t any surprises as Joe Mixon and Billy Price have been ruled out, while Preston Brown and Michael Johnson are questionable to play. Brown is still working his way back from his Week 1 ankle injury, which led to him being inactive in Week 2 after getting the questionable designation then as well. I would venture to guess he plays Sunday, but it’s far from a given.As for Johnson, he suffered a knee injury in Week 2 that was expected to sideline him for multiple weeks. He was limited in practice throughout this week, however, so there’s a real chance he plays Sunday. I still think he’s inactive and Sam Hubbard starts in his place.As for the Panthers, they’ll be without starting guard Trai Turner due to a concussion. It’s a big loss for an offensive line that’s arguably one of the worst in football right now due to an onslaught of injuries it’s sustained.Also out for the Panthers are strong safety Da’Norris Searcy (concussion), tight end Greg Olsen (foot) and wide receiver Curtis Samuel (medical issue). Rookie cornerback Donte Jackson (groin) and wide receiver Damiere Byrd (knee) are listed as questionable. Jackson is a starter, so not having him against A.J. Green, John Ross and Tyler Boyd would be good news for the Bengals Cincinnati Bengals T-Shirt , who probably are going to have to win this game through the air if they’re to win in Carolina. Cincinnati Bengals at Carolina Panthers Injury Report Andy Dalton made the Bengals' new offense look like a comfortable fit.Working out of Cincinnati's reconfigured playbook, Dalton threw a pair of touchdown passes during a 30-27 victory over the Chicago Bears on Thursday night at half-empty Paul Brown Stadium.The Bengals (1-0) were last in the league on offense last season, the worst finish in franchise history. They overhauled their leaky offensive line, and coordinator Bill Lazor injected more diversity into the playbook. It showed the first time out."That's what we wanted to do," Dalton said. "If we go out and play like we're supposed to play, it can look like that."Dalton went 6 of 8 for 103 yards, completing four passes of at least 20 yards. He also had an interception that wasn't his fault — John Ross fell on his route and Kyle Fuller returned the pickoff 47 yards to the end zone.The Bengals are hoping that Ross and running back Joe Mixon — their top two picks last season — emerge in the redesigned offense during their second seasons.Ross had a 20-yard catch. Mixon — moved into the starring role with Jeremy Hill gone — made the game's most impressive play. He caught a short pass, stiff-armed one defender and spun away from another for a 24-yard touchdown .The Bears (0-2) rested most of their starters during a 17-16 loss to the Ravens in the Hall of Fame Game, including quarterback Mitchell Trubisky . His preseason debut Thursday didn't go very well."We expect to be better," Trubisky said. "We were sloppy and that's not how we want to play."Trubisky was in for two series that netted minus-1 yard on eight plays. The Bears' only first down on those series came on Carlos Dunlap's penalty for roughing the quarterback, a late hit on Trubisky. He missed on a deep sideline pass to Kevin White on his opening throw and finished 2 of 4 for 4 yards."There was nothing extraordinary, but nothing bad Cincinnati Bengals Hats ," first-year coach Matt Nagy said. "This is so early for him right now. It'll be fun to get him more snaps and get him into a rhythm."EMPTY SEATSAttendance was 35,633, slightly more than half-capacity at the 65,535-seat stadium. Last year, the Bengals drew 44,495 for their first home preseason game. They're coming off two straight losing seasons.LOOKING GOODTyler Bray had a 56-yard completion to Daniel Brown during a 92-yard touchdown drive that put the Bears ahead in the fourth quarter. Bray finished 18 of 27 for 219 yards. The Bears signed him from Kansas City, where he was familiar with Nagy's offense.INTERESTING CHOICENagy decided to try for a tying field goal with 45 seconds left. Cody Parkey missed a 52-yard try.NATIONAL ANTHEMThere were no protests. Bears players, coaches and staff stood with arms linked for the anthem. Bengals players stood by themselves on the sideline.PRESEASON TRICKERYThe Bengals pulled off a fake punt in the second quarter, with safety Clayton Fejedelem going 49 yards after a direct snap. He finished as Cincinnati's leading rusher with the one run.HEADS UPChicago's Demarcus Ayers and Fejedelem drew personal fouls for lowering their heads during tackles.INJURIESBears: LB Josh Woods suffered a hand injury in the first half and didn't return.Bengals: LB Vincent Rey hurt his right ankle while blocking on a punt return and was helped off the field in the first quarter. He didn't return.NEXT UPBears: Play at Denver on Saturday, Aug. 18.Bengals: Play at Dallas on Saturday, Aug. 18.
