Bengals vs. Browns 2013 injury report: Cincinnati hamstrung in secondary

US PRESSWIRE

The Bengals secondary will likely be thin with Leon Hall, Reggie Nelson and Dre Kirkpatrick all listed as doubtful due to hamstring injuries.

The Cincinnati Bengals will likely be thin in their secondary when they take on the Cleveland Browns in Week 4. They expect to be without Leon Hall, Dre Kirkpatrick and Reggie Nelson.

While Terence Newman is probable for Sunday, the Bengals will likely have to rely on Adam Jones and rookie third-round pick Shawn Williams to hold off the Cleveland passing game that features Josh Gordon.

For the Browns, the injury report doesn't feature many surprises. Doubtful for action on Sunday is Jabaal Sheard, who suffered a sprained knee in the team's Week 3 victory over the Minnesota Vikings. With Sheard's likely absence, rookie first-round pick Barkevious Mingo is expected to make his first NFL start.
