    News

    Bates made 10 tackles (six solo) in Sunday's loss to the 49ers.

    Impact

    Bates continues to be a dominant run-stopping safety, and he played every defensive snap (72) for the second straight week. With 15 tackles through two weeks, the second-year pro is setting himself up well to match last year's 111-tackle mark.

    News

    Bates (wrist) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.

    Impact

    Bates was limited in practice to begin the week and now appears back to full health. The second-year pro is primed for his usual starting role in Cincinnati's secondary Week 2, and will work to contain San Francisco's aerial attack.

    News

    Bates (wrist) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.

    Impact

    Bates practicing in some capacity with this new injury is a positive sign that he'll be able to play Sunday versus the 49ers. The second-year pro has massive value for the team, as he recorded 111 tackles, seven pass breakups and three interceptions in his rookie year. If Bates isn't able to shake this issue, however, Brandon Wilson will take over as the team's starting free safety.
