CINCINNATI (AP) -- Cornerback Terence Newman is inactive for the Bengals' playoff game against the Chargers because of a knee injury, the fourth straight game he's missed.
Adam ''Pacman'' Jones is starting in his place again Sunday. The Bengals' defense finished the season ranked No. 3 in the NFL despite missing its two starting cornerbacks in Newman and Leon Hall, out with a torn Achilles tendon.
The Chargers are missing one lineman. Defensive tackle Sean Lissemore is out with a shoulder injury, replaced by Cam Thomas. Lissemore had started two of the last four games and was part of the line rotation.
