Latest on Bengals vs. Titans Injuries

Thursday Update

The Thursday injury report for the Bengals featured no new additions from Tuesday or Wednesday.

The lone change on the report was defensive tackle Josh Tupou (knee), who was upgraded to a full participant after being limited in the two practices prior due to a knee injury. Defensive ends Trey Hendrickson (concussion) and Sam Hubbard (rib) and cornerbacks Mike Hilton (ankle) and Jalen Davis (ankle) practiced in full again. Wide receiver Stanley Morgan (hamstring) was limited all week and will carry the questionable designation into the weekend due to a hamstring injury. Morgan was inactive for the Bengals’ wild-card game.

The Thursday injury report for the Titans featured zero new additions from Wednesday.

Cornerback Jackrabbit Jenkins (ankle) and linebacker Derick Roberson (Not Injury Related) — both of which were added to the injury report and did not practice yesterday practiced in full. Defensive tackle Teair Tart (ankle) remained limited and is the lone Titan to carry the questionable tag into the weekend. Defensive tackle Naquan Jones (knee) and cornerback Buster Skrine (hamstring) practiced in full for the third time this week.

Noteworthy omissions from the Titans’ report this week were wide receiver Julio Jones (hamstring) and running back Derrick Henry (foot) — both of which could be poised to play in the divisional round.

Wednesday Update

The Wednesday injury report for the Bengals featured no new additions from Tuesday.

Defensive end Trey Hendrickson (concussion) was upgraded from limited to full due to concussion. Wide receiver Stanley Morgan (hamstring) and defensive tackle Josh Tupou (knee) remained limited while cornerbacks Jalen Davis (ankle), Mike Hilton (ankle) and defensive end Sam Hubbard (rib) were full participants once again.

The Wednesday injury report for the Titans featured two additions: cornerback Jackrabbit Jenkins (ankle) and linebacker Derick Roberson (Not Injury Related). Both were non-participants, though Roberson’s was not injury-related. Jenkins is dealing with an ankle injury, which caused him to miss multiple games this season. He did play the final three games of the year.

Tuesday Update

The Tuesday injury report for the Bengals was lighter than last week’s, listing with six players total: five defensive players and one offensive player.

Cincinnati’s lone offensive player listed is wide receiver Stanley Morgan (hamstring), who is the No. 4 wideout behind Ja’Marr Chase, Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd. He was limited today with a hamstring injury. Morgan was inactive for the Bengals’ wild-card game.

The Cincinnati defensive players listed were defensive ends Trey Hendrickson (concussion) and Sam Hubbard (rib), cornerbacks Jalen Davis (ankle) and Mike Hilton (ankle) and defensive tackle Josh Tupou (knee).

Hubbard, Davis and Tupou were all on the injury report last week with rib, ankle and knee injuries, respectively, with Davis and Tupou not playing. Hendrickson and Tupou were limited today, while Davis, Hilton and Hubbard were full participants.

A noteworthy omission from the Bengals’ report is quarterback Joe Burrow (knee), who the team rested in Week 18. He completed 24 of 34 attempts for 244 yards and two touchdowns against the Raiders.

The Tuesday injury report for the Titans was lean, listing just three names total — all defensive players.

Cornerback Buster Skrine (hamstring) and defensive tackle Naquan Jones (knee) have been dealing with injuries but were full participants in practice on Tuesday. Defensive tackle Teair Tart (ankle) was limited with an ankle injury. Jones and Tart missed Week 18 but played in the week prior.

Noteworthy omissions from the Titans’ report were wide receiver Julio Jones (hamstring) and running back Derrick Henry (foot). Henry hasn’t played since Week 8 when he suffered a foot injury but still managed to post 1,091 scrimmage yards and ten touchdowns in that span.

Henry was recently cleared to practice and the team will evaluate him throughout the week. Jones has missed seven games this season due to injuries. He did play in Week 18 and caught five of nine targets for 58 yards and a touchdown.
