Cincinnati Bengals could be down two starting CBs this week

The Cincinnati Bengals are coming off of a season-altering win, but not all news is good news coming after of Sunday’s comeback win against the Green Bay Packers. One of the biggest reasons the Bengals slowed down the NFL’s No. 1 offense was by the strength of cornerbacks Leon Hall and Adam Jones’ coverage, as they blanketed Packers receivers throughout the day.

But Hall not being on the field for the final defensive series after suffering a hamstring injury, but he did say after the game he expects to play vs the Cleveland Browns.

Bengals Beat Writer Joe Reedy has already called it something to monitor this week, and Marvin Lewis didn’t sound overly optimistic yesterday that Hall would play this week:

This could be a huge loss vs the Browns, especially if Adam Jones doesn’t play if his latest mishap with the law causes him to also miss Sunday.
