Bengals missing 3 key players vs Browns

The Bengals are missing three key players for their game on

Sunday against the intrastate rival Cleveland Browns.

Middle linebacker Rey Maualuga, defensive back Chris Crocker and

right guard Kevin Zeitler are inactive. Crocker missed practice

last week with a hamstring injury, and Zeitler was sidelined by an

injured foot.

Maualuga missed his third straight game with an injured left

knee. Linebacker James Harrison had been listed as questionable

with a calf injury, but was active for the game.

The Browns were coming off a bye week that gave them time to

heal. Right guard Jason Pinkston had been listed as questionable

with an ankle injury, but was active. There were no changes in

Cleveland’s starting lineups.
