Joseph doubtful

Updated: 2:15 p.m.

With cornerback Johnathan Joseph (ankle) not practicing again Friday morning and categorized "doubtful," look for him to be inactive for the second straight week and David Jones getting his second NFL start Sunday against the Browns.

Tight end Ben Utecht (chest) had been limited this week until Friday, when he had a full practice. He says it hurts and that it will be a call with pain tolerance. Running back Kenny Watson (hamstring), limited Thursday, was on the field Friday but didn't practice and like Utecht is listed as questionable. Also questionable is cornerback David Jones (knee) who had a full practice.

Left tackle Levi Jones (knee) was new on the injury report and is probable even though he didn't practice.

In Cleveland, two Browns starters, linebacker Willie McGinest (hamstring) and wide receiver Donte Stallworth (quad) are doubtful and neither practiced Friday. Two other starters are also questionable in left guard Eric Steinbach (shoulder) and linebacker Kamerion Wimbley (groin). Both were limited Friday.

FAST FACT: The Bengals have never gone four straight games without an interception in the Marvin Lewis Era. Three games ties the longest skein without a pick, going back to the three straight losses to the Falcons, Ravens and Chargers, Oct. 29 - Nov. 12, 2006.
