Cincinnati Bengals’ Injury Report – Week Of 08/20/07

Posted by Matt on August 21, 2007

Tab Perry made his triumphant (not so much — 2 rec, 19 yds) return to the Cincinnati Bengals during Saturday’s 19-27 loss to the New Orleans Saints after being out nearly a year with an injury to his hips. This marks the first return from injury of one of Cincinnati’s regular players during this preseason that saw the team go in to the game against the Saints with 21 players sidelined due to some sort of ailment, bruise, or other physical injury.

With this in mind, head coach Marvin Lewis has announced this week that he will shave practices in half, from two hours to one, to try to nurse this team back to health; a team that claimed “camp legs” was one of the many reasons for the lackadaisical play during Saturday’s outing.

Returning To Practice This Week:

  • LB Earl Everett

  • WR Glen Holt (hamstring)

  • FB Jeremi Johnson (hamstring – expected to play Monday 08/27/07)

  • CB Jonathan Joseph (foot)

  • TE Reggie Kelly (should return – excused over the weekend for personal reasons)

  • CB Keiwan Ratliff (dental)

  • S Marvin White (knee)

  • FB Stan White

  • CB Brandon Williams (undisclosed)

Currently Inactive:

  • CB Blue Adams

  • RT Willie Anderson (foot as of 8/16 – indefinitely)

  • TE Bobby Blizzard (lower back – indefinitely)

  • WR Antonio Chatman (hamstring – indefinitely)

  • TE Tim Day (knee – indefinitely)

  • DE Robert Geathers (bruised chest/ribcage as of 8/19 – indefinitely)

  • LB Rashad Jeanty (undisclosed – indefinitely)

  • LT Levi Jones (knee – indefinitely: possibly returning to mild workouts by 08/24/07)

  • CB Ethan Kilmer (knee – indefinitely)

  • TE Sean Mulcahy (neck – indefinitely)

  • RB Chris Perry (ankle – five weeks of regular season – Physically Unable to Perform List [PUP])

  • LB David Pollack (neck – season)

  • DE Jimmy Verdon (undisclosed – day-to-day)

Season Ending Injured Reserve List:

  • LB Eric Henderson (wrist: fractured – season)
  • RB Kenny Irons (knee: torn ACL – season)
  • RB Dan Burks (season)

Suspension List:

  • WR Chris Henry (eight games of regular season)
  • LB Odell Thurman (season)

Most Recently Waived:

  • DE Bryan Andrews

  • DT Elliot Seifert

  • QB Jeff Smith

Willie Anderson appeared on Monday without the walking boot on his right foot that shocked Bengaldom last week and is optimistic for an Opening Day (September 10th) return. Levi Jones is also optimistic for a return in mid-September but doesn’t have the natural swagger that Anderson does to predict his comeback. The rest of the injured list can be assumed to be on a day-to-day basis unless otherwise noted as most ailments are due to the normal bumps and bruises of Training Camp, one that DE Justin Smith is calling Coach Lewis’ “toughest camp yet.”

This list will be continuously updated throughout the week as information becomes available.
