Bengals LB Logan Wilson put in a full practice Wednesday, his 1st action since he suffered a shoulder injury in the Week 13 loss to the Chargers. Cincinnati HC Zac Taylor called it "an encouraging big step" toward Wilson potentially playing Sunday against the Chiefs, according to the team website. Taylor had previously viewed Wilson as a longshot for the K.C. game. We'll see how the rest of the week goes.

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.

Bengals HC Zac Taylor said Monday that DE Trey Hendrickson was dealing with mere back spasms when he left Sunday's loss to the 49ers early, according to ESPN's Ben Baby. Taylor said he hopes to have Hendrickson on the field for limited participation at Wednesday's practice. That would bode well for his chances of playing against Denver on Sunday.

Bengals DE Trey Hendrickson left Sunday's loss to the 49ers late in the 1st half with a back injury. We'll see about the severity of the injury.

Bills RB Zack Moss is a healthy scratch for today's game vs. the Bucs. It's not a surprise with the power running game unlikely to be a big part of Buffalo's game plan today. Devin Singletary and Matt Breida will handle backfield duties for the Bills, but neither is a good fantasy bet.

Bengals WR Tee Higgins (ankle) is active for today’s game vs. the 49ers. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. Higgins probably won’t be at 100% today but remains an upside WR2 play.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Bengals WR Tee Higgins (ankle) is expected to play vs. the 49ers today. Higgins got in 2 limited practices this week after tweaking his ankle last Sunday. He comes with a bit more risk in Week 14 fantasy lineups but remains a WR2 with upside.

Bengals WR Tee Higgins (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the 49ers. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday, and HC Zac Taylor confirmed that Higgins is expected to play on Sunday. He can be penciled into fantasy lineups.

Bengals QB Joe Burrow (finger) isn’t listed on the final injury report. He put in a limited practice on Thursday and was a full-go on Friday. He threw the ball well in practice according to the Cincinnati media in attendance. We’re not expecting Burrow’s injured pinky to be a problem in Sunday’s game vs. the 49ers.

Bengals WR Tee Higgins (ankle) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. He should be available for this weekend's game vs. the 49ers, but check back tomorrow for another update.

Bengals QB Joe Burrow (finger, knee) put in a limited practice on Thursday. He reportedly looked just fine throwing without any protection on that injured pinky, according to the media in attendance for the start of practice. Burrow is fully expected to start Sunday's game vs. the 49ers.

Bengals WR Tee Higgins (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. He got banged up in last week's game vs. the Chargers but was able to play through it. We're expecting him to be available for Sunday's game vs. the 49ers, but check back tomorrow for another update.

Bengals QB Joe Burrow told reporters Wednesday that the pinky he injured in last week's loss to the Chargers is "feeling better." He added that he's dealing with a "little bit of swelling" and will be limited in Wednesday's practice. Burrow still expects to play vs. the 49ers on Sunday, but we'll keep a close eye on him over the next few days.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports that the Bengals expect LB Logan Wilson to "miss an extended period of time" with the shoulder injury he suffered in Sunday's loss to the Chargers. According to Fowler, the team hopes it'll just be a game or 2, "but it's probably going to be longer than that." It sounds like Wilson will be droppable in tight-roster leagues. We'll see how Wilson progresses. Germaine Pratt should run as Cincinnati's lead LB in Wilson's absence. Joe Bachie filled in as the #2 vs. the Chargers.

Bills RB Zack Moss is active for tonight's game vs. the Patriots after getting healthy scratched last week. He joins Devin Singletary and Matt Breida in the backfield. Buffalo figures to run it more tonight than usual in snowy and windy conditions.

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.

Bengals QB Joe Burrow dislocated his right pinky in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's loss to the Chargers. He was in obvious discomfort but was able to play through the issue. Burrow said after the game that he doesn't expect to miss time going forward, but it'll be a situation to monitor leading into Sunday's game vs. the 49ers.

Bengals LB Logan Wilson left in the 1st half Sunday against the Chargers with a shoulder injury. Former NFL team doctor David Chao said it looked like a dislocated right shoulder. We'll see about the official diagnosis and how long Wilson might be out. The team has ruled him out for the rest of the game.

Bills RB Zack Moss is a healthy scratch for tonight's game vs. the Saints. Buffalo will roll with RBs Devin Singletary and Matt Breida. "I think it'll be a 1A/1B situation unless someone gets hot," The Athletic's Joe Buscaglia wrote, labeling Singletary the 1A. In a matchup vs. the league's top-ranked RB defense, consider Singletary and Breida just RB3 or flex options.

11:30am EST 11/14/21

Bills RB Zack Moss (concussion) is active for today’s game vs. the Jets. He figures to continue splitting backfield work with Devin Singletary, leaving both guys as just RB3 or flex plays.
