The Cincinnati Bengals would love to roll out the same starting five along the offensive line for the fourth consecutive time with the Los Angeles Chargers in town over the weekend.

But with two of the three injury reports for the week on the books now, that’s beginning to look unlikely.

Both center Trey Hopkins and right tackle Riley Reiff suffered ankle injuries during last week’s win over Pittsburgh. Those issues kept both guys out of practice on Wednesday and Thursday.

Friday’s practice and final injury report will say it all — if both guys can go even limited, they have a shot at suiting up.

Initially, after the win over Pittsburgh, Zac Taylor said Hopkins’ injury wasn’t serious and Reiff could’ve returned if they really needed him.

Given the importance of consistency together for a starting five, Friday is a critical moment for the Bengals, especially now that right guard has finally been upgraded thanks to strong play from Hakeem Adeniji.
