The Bengals placed DE Sam Hubbard on IR with his left elbow injury ahead of Sunday's loss to the Colts. That means Hubbard will also miss at least weeks 7 and 8. He'll be eligible to return after the Week 9 bye, though, if that elbow is ready. Cincinnati still played DE Carlos Dunlap for a season-low 44% of the snaps against Indy, even with Hubbard out. Dunlap isn't much of an IDP option at his current usage.
Bengals DE Sam Hubbard is officially questionable for Sunday’s game against the Browns. We’re not sure how serious the thigh issue is, given that Hubbard finished the week with a full Friday practice. (He missed Wednesday then was limited Thursday.) The Bengals, of course, have already revealed that they’re resting some starters. We’ll see where Hubbard fits within that. The fact that many of the team’s other D-linemen are dealing with COVID or injuries might force Hubbard into at least some action. We’ve removed him from the rankings for now, though
The Bengals have activated DE Sam Hubbard from IR. Hubbard missed the past 3 games with an elbow injury but should be ready for Sunday's game against the Steelers. Hubbard belongs in IDP lineups most weeks when healthy, though this isn't a great matchup.
The Bengals on Tuesday designated DE Sam Hubbard to return from IR. That allows Hubbard to practice with the team this week. We'll see if his injured elbow is ready to return for Sunday's game against the Steelers. Hubbard is worth adding in IDP leagues where available this week, even if you don't plan to use him -- or gain the ability to use him -- against Pittsburgh.
Bengals DE Sam Hubbard left Sunday's loss to the Ravens with a left elbow injury. HC Zac Taylor told reporters Monday that Hubbard won't play in Week 6 and could miss multiple games. That likely gives slight playing-time boosts to DEs Carl Lawson and Carlos Dunlap. Rookie Khalid Kareem was the 4th DE in against Baltimore and could see the largest boost. None makes for a strong option this week against a tough Colts O-line.
