Joseph doubtful

Upated: 2:55 p.m.

It looks like the Bengals won't have cornerback Johnathan Joseph on Sunday because he didn't dress for his third straight practice Friday morning with a sprained ankle and has been downgraded to doubtful.

He said before practice that he is now out of the walking boot for good and that it will probably be a game-time decision.

Also not dressed and figured to be out were tight end Ben Utecht (chest) and safety Herana-Daze Jones (hamstring). Jones has officially been ruled out and Utecht is doubtful. Safety Dexter Jackson (thumb) has already been declared out. Utecht worked up a big sweat and one of his drills was lying on his chest and then scrambling to his feet to run about 50 yards.

Everybody else is probable, including safety Kyries Hebert, who tweaked a hamstring Thursday and was limited again Friday. All the other probables had a full practice.

Also probable is Giants right end Mathias Kiwanuka (ankle) after he went through a full practice Friday. Cornerback R.W. McQuarters is doubutful after he didn't practice all week. Kicker Lawrence Tynes (knee) was limited Friday but probable.
