Bengals: QB Carson Palmer (3rd), WR Chad Johnson, WR Jerome Simpson, TE Ben Utecht, T Levi Jones, RB Kenny Watson, G Evan Mathis, CB Simeon Castille.
Analysis: WR T.J. Houshmandzadeh is active and will start, as expected. WR Chris Henry will see more work with Johnson out. The Bengals’ offensive line will be at less than full strength once again with Jones out.
Browns: RB Allen Patrick, TE Kellen Winslow, TE John Madsen, WR Paul Hubbard, DB Travis Daniels, SS Hamza Abdullah, DE Shaun Smith, LB Leon Williams.
Analysis: TE Darnell Dinkins will start with Winlsow inactive and TE Steve Heiden out for the season.
