Cincinnati Bengals CB Terence Newman misses practice


According to Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com, the Cincinnati Bengals were without starting cornerback Terence Newman today, as he was among several players not on the field today for practice:

Cornerback Terence Newman Newman, who missed 15 plays with a hip injury Sunday before returning to finish, wasn’t dressed for Wednesday’s practice but worked on the side. Running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis (illness) and defensive tackle Devon Still (unknown) were out. Three injured players not yet on the roster but eligible to practice Wednesday – wide receiver Andrew Hawkins (ankle), fullback Chris Pressley (knee) and quarterback Zac Robinson (elbow _ weren’t on the field.

The Bengals need all of their corners to be a full-go on Sunday as they prepare to face one of the league’s top passing offenses, led by All-Pro receiver Calvin Johnson, widely regarded as the league’s best receiver.

The fact that Newman was working on the side is a good indicator that the team is just giving him some veteran rest, and they may do that tomorrow as well. He just needs a full-go during Friday’s session to be prepared to start Sunday.
