Cincinnati Bengals Player News: All Positions

News: Wilson (hand) was placed on injured reserve Friday.
Impact: Wilson was already ruled out for Week 14 but will now miss the rest of the season due to the hand injury. The 25-year-old enjoyed a quality campaign returning kickoffs for the Bengals, averaging 31.3 yards with one touchdown on 20 kick returns. Alex Erickson is a likely candidate to take over that role for the final month of the season.
News: Wilson (hand) was ruled out for Sunday's game at Cleveland, Geoff Hopson of the Bengals' official site reports.
Impact: Wilson aggravated the hand injury during last week's win over the Jets and won't be able to play Week 14. The 25-year-old is averaging 31.3 yards and has one touchdown on 20 kick returns this season. Punt returner Alex Erickson is a likely option to fill in on kickoffs for the Bengals.
News: Carter does not carry an injury designation Friday, Tyler Dragon of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Impact: Tyler's absence from Friday's injury report indicates that he's fully cleared the league's five-step protocol for head injuries. He returned to practice without limitations Thursday. With Drew Sample (ankle) ruled out for Sunday's game against the Browns, Carter could be in line for increased depth snaps.
News: Sample (ankle) is ruled out for Sunday's tilt against the Browns, Tyler Dragon of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Impact: Sample is set to miss a fourth straight game due to his lingering right ankle injury. The Bengals will roll with Tyler Eifert, C.J. Uzomah, Mason Schreck and Cethan Carter at the tight end position in Cleveland on Sunday.
News: Hubbard (knee) is ruled out for Sunday's divisional tilt against the Browns, Tyler Dragon of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Impact: Hubbard will miss his first game of the season due to a knee injury. The 2018 third-round pick will set his sights on making a potential return Week 15 versus the Patriots. Hubbard has notched 11 tackles (eight solo), two sacks and a defended pass across his last two contests.
News: Carter (concussion) logged a full practice Thursday, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.
Impact: Carter missed the team's Week 13 victory over the Jets and logged a limited practice Wednesday. However, he upgraded to the full practice Thursday and should be in a strong position to return for the Bengals' Week 14 matchup against the Browns as a result.
News: Green (ankle) was wearing cleats at Thursday's practice and was spotted doing some individual work on a side field, Tyler Dragon of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Impact: Green has already been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Browns and will once again go down as a non-participant on Thursday's practice report, but his presence on the rehab field represents a step forward in his recovery, as he hadn't been able to even work out on the side since suffering a setback a few weeks ago. The Bengals' decision to keep Green on the active roster implies that a late-season return hasn't been ruled out, but he'll almost certainly need to put in at least a full practice or two in the coming weeks before getting the green light to play.
