Cincinnati Bengals head coach Zac Taylor made it clear that despite missing two practices and only lightly suiting up but not practicing again on Friday, La’el Collins could end up playing in Week 3 against the New York Jets.
That’s reflected in the final injury report the team listed on Friday, with these designations going official:
LB Germaine Pratt (Doubtful)
OT La’el Collins (Questionable)
TE Hayden Hurst (Questionable)
If Collins isn’t able to go, one of D’Ante Smith or Hakeem Adeniji would get the nod at that starting right tackle spot.
Pratt is an underrated loss in the middle of the defense, especially against a Jets team that would like to establish the run while starting a backup quarterback.
