Cincinnati Bengals offensive linemen Alex Cappa and Jonah Williams weren’t on the practice field Wednesday as the team began prep for the divisional round encounter with the Buffalo Bills.
Wednesday in the locker room, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer’s Kelsey Conway, Cappa was still on the scooter and Williams had at least gotten rid of the one crutch while he walked.
Bengals head coach Zac Taylor had described both Cappa and Williams as week-to-week early this week, effectively ruling them out for the game against the Bills.
All signs point to one or both being able to return eventually if the Bengals keep advancing, but the insight from the locker room explains why they weren’t out there on the practice field. Max Scharping remains at right guard in place of Cappa and Jackson Carman at left tackle for Williams.
