The Bengals worked on Thursday morning without wide receiver James Wright (knee) and SAM linebacker Emmanuel Lamur (hamstring) and they look headed to Monday night's inactive list when they host the Broncos (8:30-Cincinnat's Channel 5 and ESPN) at Paul Brown Stadium.
Wright hasn't worked since he had a career day in Tampa Bay Nov. 30 and Lamur went down last week in Cleveland, but both appeared to be rehabbing intensely.
Wide receiver A.J. Green returned Friday after missing Thursday with an illness while left tackle Andrew Whitworth rested his knee. Cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick (Achilles) and left end Carlos Dunlap (calf) were limited a second straight day.
