Injury look: Hill, Sims out, Bullock questionable; Sunday's weather


Randy Bullock is still a question mark.

The Bengals still don't know who is kicking Sunday in Tennessee (1 p.m.-Cincinnati's Channel 19), so Marshall Koehn is still here and Randy Bullock is listed as questionable with his back still iffy after Koehn kicked for him last week in Jacksonville.

Bullock went limited Friday, according to the injury report. What matters is how he responds Saturday and, more importantly, how he wakes up Sunday morning.

What they do know is that back-up running back Jeremy Hill (ankle), starting middle linebacker Kevin Minter (elbow)) and starting nose tackle Pat Sims (hamstring)  are out. What has to concern them is starting safety Shawn Williams (hamstring) didn't participate in Friday's walk-through and is listed as doubtful after going limited Thursday. Williams is one of the guys that has to defend tight end Delanie Walker, the Titans' biggest threat through the air.

The Bengals listed slot receiver Tyler Boyd (knee) full Friday for the first time since he sprained his MCL Oct. 8. He wasn't designated doubtful or questionable, so he may be available.

Everybody else who was on the report during the week, middle linebacker Vontaze Burfict (thigh), wide receiver Brandon LaFell (hamstring), defensive linemen Michael Johnson (back) and Chris Smith (ankle), and cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick (illness), were listed as full and are probably all going to be active.
So for the inactive list for sure they'll have Hill, Minter, Sims, and one of the kickers.

CLASSY KNOLL REPORT: For Sunday's weather in Nashville, here's the report from Bengals equipment manager Adam Knollman:

A local noon start…. 56 degrees at kickoff…cloudy…. virtually no wind from the southwest…seven miles per hour….Attire for sidelines during the game and pre-game warmups looks to be sweat shirts..
