The Bengals are re-signing LB Germaine Pratt for three years at $21 million, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Pratt's playing time fluctuated a bit in 2022, his fourth season with the team. His 75.6% snap share across 15 regular-season games marked a career high and his third straight increase in that category. Pratt also played 83% or more of the snaps in each of the final five contests, including the three playoff contests. Cincinnati also significantly decreased Pratt's special-teams role in 2022. All of this points to Pratt potentially delivering more consistent IDP value in 2023. We boosted him up the dynasty rankings on this contract news.

Bengals LB Logan Wilson (shoulder) is ready to play Monday night against the Browns after putting in full practices all week. It's an impressive recovery from a shoulder injury that initially seemed likely to cost him multiple games. Wilson missed just 1. He's an LB3 with upside in our Week 8 IDP rankings. His return knocks LBs Germaine Pratt and Akeem Davis-Gaither down the rankings. Bengals EDGE Trey Hendrickson (neck) is also off the week's final injury report. He missed the 1st 2 days but then put in a full Friday. Cincinnati will most likely go without CB Eli Apple, who is doubtful with a hamstring injury.

Bengals LB Logan Wilson is expected to miss at least the next 2 games and potentially more than a month with the right-shoulder injury that knocked him out of Sunday's win over the Saints. It's the same shoulder he injured last season, which required surgery after the year. ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports that the latest injury is less severe and that "around 2-5 weeks [is] considered a fair window of return." Last year's shoulder injury cost Wilson 3 games before he returned to play every snap in his final regular-season appearance and throughout the playoffs. If this injury isn't as bad, then perhaps we should be optimistic for a return on the shorter end of the timeline. Whether to stash or dump Wilson will depend heavily on the size and scoring of your league as well as roster size and IDP lineup positions. Germaine Pratt and Akeem Davis-Gaither figure to lead Cincinnati LBs while Wilson is out.

Bengals LB Germaine Pratt is active for tonight's game. A knee injury kept him out Sunday, but he finished this short week with 2 full practices. Pratt remains a low-level IDP option. His return should bring down the playing time for Akeem Davis-Gaither, who produced in Pratt's absence in Week 3.

Bengals LB Germaine Pratt (knee) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Jets. That should mean more playing time for LB Akeem Davis-Gaither. From a 15% starting point in snap share, though, it's tough to know whether he'll climb into relevance for any beyond the deepest of leagues.

The Bengals on Wednesday placed LB Germaine Pratt on the COVID list. Even with the new league protocol, he's almost definitely out for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, which is just 4 days away. LB Logan Wilson also remains doubtful with a shoulder injury, so the Bengals are likely looking at Markus Bailey leading the group in playing time against K.C. Bailey got his 1st start of the year last week, playing 78% of snaps and collecting 8 tackles (4 solo). He could be a high-upside sleeper for tackle opportunities, with the Chiefs well-equipped to attack the middle of the Cincinnati defense.

Doctors have confirmed a dislocated right shoulder for Bengals LB Logan Wilson. HC Zac Taylor said Monday that Wilson will miss next Sunday's game against the 49ers, according to Adam Caplan. It's not yet clear how much time he'll miss beyond that. Germaine Pratt jumped to near-full playing time Sunday, in the game Wilson left. Joe Bachie also got in for 61% snap share, matching Pratt's 9 total tackles.

The Bengals spent a 3rd-round pick on N.C. State LB Germaine Pratt in the NFL Draft. Pratt spent just 1 year at MLB for the Wolfpack after starting out at safety, but he weighed in at 240 pounds at the Scouting Combine and delivered a 110.0 speed score. Pratt ranked 10th among Combine off-ball LBs in tackles for loss per game in 2018 (0.91) and 2nd in the group in sacks per game (0.55). Pratt should compete for the middle job in a defense that finally shed Vontaze Burfict this offseason.
