Update: Rudi out

Updated: 12-28-07, 3 p.m.

Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis said Friday that running back Rudi Johnson (hamstring) won't play for the second straight week. He didn't appear early in Friday's practice and hasn't worked all week. Lewis did say that Quincy Wilson, signed Wednesday after not being on the field since August, could play if needed behind Kenny Watson.

"He'd been here for three years," said Lewis, who said he's not worried about ball security.

Lewis had some of those concerns when wide receiver Chris Henry came back after his eight-game suspension.

"Different guy," Lewis said. "You're talking about a guy you can depend on and a guy you can't."

Wilson has two regular-season carries, both last year.

Strong safety Dexter Jackson (calf) didn't dress Wednesday and Thursday, was on the field Friday early but didn't practice and is listed as doubtful. So for the second straight week rookies Chinedum Ndukwe and Marvin White look to get the start.

After being limited Wednesday and Thursday, right tackle Willie Anderson wasn't on the field early Friday but Lewis indicated he'll be in a similar rotation with Stacy Andrews that they used last week. He's listed as questionable after not practicing.

After being limited Wednesday, wide receiver Glenn Holt (back) didn't practice Thursday but was back on the field Friday and is listed as probable. Cornerback Deltha O'Neal, battling a variety nicks over the second half of the season, was back practicing Friday after missing Thursday because of a "team decision," and should be ready to go because he wasn't listed on the injury report.

In Miami, defensive tackle Keith Traylor (ankle) is out. Defensive end Jason Taylor (foot) is questionable after not practicing all week, as is cornerback Travis Daniels (ankle).
