Monday update: Maualuga, Still, Crocker working

Posted Nov 25, 2013

It looks like the Bengals are well on their way to being at full strength for Sunday's game at San Diego.

When the Bengals left for the bye week, head coach Marvin Lewis said his team would be at full strength for Sunday's game in San Diego (4:25 p.m.-Cincinnati's Channel 12) and Monday's workout indicated they are well on their way.

It appeared that only right guard Kevin Zeitler (foot) and SAM linebacker James Harrison (unknown) weren't dressed for Monday morning's see-your-breath workout on the practice field adjacent to Paul Brown Stadium in 33-degree weather.

It looked like Harrison was getting a veteran's day off after playing 55 snaps last week in the win over Cleveland, his most as a Bengal.

Backup defensive tackle Devon Still (elbow), who has missed the last four games, and starting middle linebacker Rey Maualuga (concussion, knee), who has missed the last three, were on the field. So was nickel cornerback Chris Crocker (hamstring), who missed the Cleveland game.

Also working Monday was fullback Chris Pressley (knee) as he comes off the physically unable to play (PUP) list. Quarterback Zac Robinson, also on PUP, didn't practice but is eligible.

Zeitler missed his first game as a Bengal against Cleveland after 26 straight starts.

SACK SWITCH:Elias has given a half-sack to lineman Wallace Gilberry from the Cleveland game and taken a full one from right end Michael Johnson, That leaves Gilberry with 5.5, 1.5 behind team leader Carlos Dunlap. Johnson now has three sacks.
