With the Cleveland Browns and Cincinnati Bengals squaring off on Monday Night Football, everything is moved back a day from the usual. Normally, Friday is the final injury report and we have the status of the players going into the weekend. Today, we get day two updates from both teams after 15 players didn’t practice on Thursday.

WR Ja’Marr Chase will not play but could be back in a few weeks while TE David Njoku might have a chance to play but is still unlikely.
