Bengals get good injury updates on Monday of Steelers week

The Cincinnati Bengals looked comfortably healthy on the Monday practice before their season-opening contest against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Those Bengals got especially good news at tight end as both Drew Sample and Mitchell Wilcox returned to practice at the spot.

Another question area — cornerback — got some good news as well with veteran Eli Apple returning to practice. That comes on the heels of the team moving second-round rookie Cam Taylor-Britt to injured reserve.

As an aside and as expected, wideout Tee Higgins returned to practice after being out last week for non-injury reasons.

Joe Bachie, Brandon Wilson, Devin Cochran and Tycen Anderson worked on the side, per the Cincinnati Enquirer’s Charlie Goldsmith, as well as tight end Devin Asiasi.

Overall, the Bengals look solid at tight end and cornerback, which were the big points of concern for Week 1 after the setbacks at those spots.
