Cincinnati Bengals CB Terence Newman probable to practice Friday



It looks like Cincinnati Bengals starting cornerback Terence Newman will go today during the final-pre-Detroit Lions practice:


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 this week while he missed the first two practices is a good indicator that the team is just giving him some veteran rest. He just needs a full-go during Friday’s session to be prepared to start Sunday, and it looks as though he’ll practice in at least some capacity today.

Against the Lions, he’ll likely be matched-up against receiver Kris Durham, who is coming off an eight-catch for 83 yards performance vs the Cleveland Browns.

The Bengals could also match Newman up with tight end Joseph Fauria, as the rookie sensation is leading all rookies with five touchdown scored.
