Bengals vs. Browns injury report: Tee Higgins, Sam Hubbard pop up as limited

Photo by Andy Lyons/ New injuries are popping up as game day approaches. Two surprises are featured on the Cincinnati Bengals’ latest injury report. Tee Higgins and Sam Hubbard were both limited for Thursday’s practice. Higgins is listed with a hamstring injury, as Hubbard is with a calf. As always, information is rather limited following practice when local media isn’t present for the entire session, so there’s mostly projection when it comes to these developments. We’ll learn more when tomorrow’s report is posted. Everyone else aside from Hayden Hurst...

Hayden Hurst updates his injury status

Photo by Justin K. Aller/ Hurst made it clear he’ll be back this season. The Cincinnati Bengals will be without starting tight end Hayden Hurst Sunday against the Cleveland Browns after he suffered a right calf injury in the team’s win over the Chiefs last Sunday. Today, Hurst acknowledged he might be sidelined for multiple weeks, which could include next week’s road trip to Tampa to take on Tom Brady and the Buccaneers, but he made it crystal clear the injury was not serious or season-ending when speaking with the media Thursday. Hurst said the calf is nothing...

Weekly Lineman: La’el Collins, B.J. Hill answering the call to smashmouth

Photo by Andy Lyons/ One player creates the running lanes, the other clogs them. The rebirth of the running game became a pivotal storyline early in the NFL season. According to what Mike Tanier wrote last month for the New York Times, teams were averaging the highest per game rushing yardage since 1987, and the highest yards per carry rate in league history through Week 10. But surely in a game featuring Patrick Mahomes and Joe Burrow, handing the ball off would take a backseat, right? Wrong. The Cincinnati Bengals and Kansas City Chiefs combined for 51 total rushes on...

NFL Week 14 coverage map: Will Browns vs. Bengals be on your TV?

Photo by Jason Miller/ Hopefully you get to see Joe Burrow set things straight against Cleveland. The Cincinnati Bengals are the hottest team in the league. And yet, most of the nation won’t get to see Joe Burrow and company cook the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. Thankfully, most of those in Ohio and some in Kentucky and Indiana will get to see the Bengals for the early game on CBS. Others will have to watch the New York Jets at the Buffalo Bills, the Baltimore Ravens at the Pittsburgh Steelers, or the Jacksonville Jaguars at the Tennessee Titans. The late game will...

Bengals vs. Browns: How to watch, game time, TV schedule, streaming and more

David Dermer-USA TODAY Sports The Bengals look to get over their demons with the Browns. Well, it is time for the Cincinnati Bengals to play the Cleveland Browns again. Last year, the red-hot Bengals used their second meeting as more of a bye week prior to the Wild Card round. Even so, the Browns have downright beat up the Bengals the past few seasons. When fans talk about divisional games being weird this is a prime example. Cleveland has shutdown this team the past few teams that both sides played starters against starters, However, the rest of the season they look...

Photo by Jason Miller/ Both Mixon and Njoku are expected to play this week. The Cincinnati Bengals and Cleveland Browns have released their first injury reports ahead of Sunday’s clash at Paycor Stadium. For the Bengals, the big news was running back Joe Mixon going full while working his way back from a concussion suffered in Week 11.

Bengals Reacts Survey Week 14

Joe Simon for the Enquirer / USA TODAY NETWORK Good times. Remember when the Cincinnati Bengals were 0-2? Since then, the Bengals have reeled off eight wins in their last 10 games, the most recent coming over the AFC-favorite Kansas City Chiefs in yet another thriller between the two teams. The latest was a 27-24 win at Paycor Stadium, the third time Joe Burrow and Co. have taken down Kansas City since last January. Now sitting at 8-4, the Bengals are heavy favorites to make the playoffs, where they hope to put together another memorable playoff run that lands them in...

Who deserves the most credit for the Bengals’ astronomical rise?

Photo by Jamie Squire/ So much has gone right the last two years. It’s hard to fathom. The Cincinnati Bengals are sitting pretty at 8-4, having just defeated the Kansas City Chiefs for the third time in 2022. They are now the talk of the town. For those of us following the team closely, it feels like most of the football-watching world is at least a few weeks behind, if not almost a year. Bengals fans saw something special in this team late last year. Everything was coming together. Outsiders called it a fluke not aware of the massive change that has occurred in...

Rookie Report: Clean sheet for Cordell Volson

Sam Greene-USA TODAY Sports The fourth-rounder had a game to remember. What makes the NFL truly special isn’t always the sheer parity. The most memorable games involve the elite teams trading blow for blow until one comes out on top. It’s why most fans consider the Kansas City Chiefs’ thrilling victory over the Buffalo Bills in last year’s playoffs the best matchup in recent history, and not the game the Chiefs lost the week afterwards. The Cincinnati Bengals have built a team that can enter the ring with the Chiefs, and Bills for that matter, and deliver...

Bengals will wear black jerseys and white pants vs. Browns

Photo by Andy Lyons/ This is the first time they will do so since Joe Burrow’s rookie year. The Cincinnati Bengals are still winless against the Cleveland Browns in the Joe Burrow era. (One of those losses, of course, was in Week 18 of last year, when Burrow sat out with the Bengals having clinched a playoff spot.) In those five losses, they have worn white jerseys and black pants twice, white jerseys and white pants once, black jerseys and black pants once, and black jerseys and white pants once. The closest of those losses, which came in the quarterback’s rookie...

Joseph Maiorana-USA TODAY Sports Cincinnati’s big-time win over Kansas City restored faith in the reigning AFC Champs. The Cincinnati Bengals are riding a four-game win streak and have surged to start their second-half schedule. They took down the Steelers 37-30 then defeated the Titans in Tennessee 20-16.
