Trae Waynes and two Vikings players will not play in Cincinnati.
It’s the first weekend of the NFL season, and the Cincinnati Bengals have released their final injury report for Week 1.
As expected, Trae Waynes is officially out with a hamstring injury. Waynes missed all three practices this week and the team hopes he can return sometime this month.
The good news is Waynes will be the lone injured Bengal on the inactive list on Sunday. The 52 other players are fully healthy, as reflected on the injury report. Trey Hill (hip) and Mitchell Wilcox (concussion) are both set to play if needed.
Bengals Final Injury Report
The big story here involved the opposition. The Minnesota Vikings have declared Anthony Barr (knee) and Christian Darrisaw (groin) out for Sunday.
Barr was limited during Wednesday’s practice but was held out on Thursday and Friday. This could mean former Bengal Nick Vigil will get more playing time on nickel downs for the Vikings defense.
Darrisaw wasn’t likely to play this week as he didn’t partake in team drills. He missed the entire preseason with his groin injury as well.
Rashod Hill is expected to start at left tackle for Darrisaw.
