The Miami Dolphins face the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 5, and the Bengals' injury report on Wednesday has some insight into how the Dolphins might gameplan their attack. Cincinnati looks to be thin in the secondary, possibly opening some opportunities for Ryan Tannehill.
Cincinnati's starting right and left corner are both on the injury report, with Leon Hall and Nate Clements limited in practice. Backups at corner Jason Allen and Dre Kirkpatrick are also listed, with Allen missing practice entirely and Kirkpatrick limited. Elsewhere on defense, starting defensive end Carlos Dunlap was limited in practice.
On the offensive side of the ball is tackle Andrew Whitworth, among others. A complete injury list is below.
