Cincinnati Bengals Pro Bowler Leon Hall practicing

The Cincinnati Bengals are getting healthy at the right time, and facing a Buffalo Bills team that’s dealing with their own injuries, a win Sunday will put the Bengals at 4-2 and looking every bit like the AFC North favorite they were pegged to be before the season opened.

Per’s Geoff Hobson, it looks like cornerback Leon Hall will be back this week vs the Bills after he was once again able to take to the practice field today:

It looked like Bengals cornerback Leon Hall was going to try and give it a go in practice Wednesday after missing the last two games with a hamstring he injured blocking on cornerback Terence Newman’s winning 58-yard fumble recovery for a touchdown late in the Sept. 22 victory over the Packers.

He was limited Friday and said he didn’t do much. On Wednesday he was out there for the early drills. Right end Michael Johnson (concussion) and cornerback Brandon Ghee (thigh) were not after missing last Sunday’s game. Johnson appeared to be working on the side.

“I feel good,” Hall said before practice. “But I haven’t done any football yet.”

Hall will be expected to shadow the Bills’ leading receiver in Stevie Johnson, who is currently battling a back injury while dealing with a death in the family, but is expected to play.
