The Cincinnati Bengals came out of their game against the Baltimore Ravens a little worse for the wear as injuries took their toll.
As of Thursday, two Bengals offensive linemen are still missing practice. Starting right guard Alex Kappa and starting left tackle Jonah Williams were non-participants for the second day in a row.
In the win over Baltimore, Williams injured his knee while Kappa struggled with an ankle injury. Bengals head coach Zack Taylor has ruled him week-to-week since then.
To profootballtalkIn the unlikely event that Kappa and Williams cannot leave, they will be replaced by Max Sharping and Jackson Carman, respectively.
Injuries are piling up for the Bengals at the worst possible time. Star right tackle La’L Collins tore his ACL in December and several other players have been limited in practice this week.
Beating the Buffalo Bills this Sunday is no easy feat, even if their entire team is healthy. But the loss of two of their best blockers could severely hamper the Bengals’ offense.
Joe Burrows can only be as good as the offensive line allows him to be.
Will the loss of Kappa and Williams cost the Bengals a win against the Bills this weekend?
