Injury Situation Fluid as Cincinnati Bengals Prepare for Baltimore Ravens

The Cincinnati Bengals hope to get back two key defensive players while the focal point of their offense remains questionable for Sunday's game in Baltimore against the Ravens.

Defensive end Carlos Dunlap returned to "full go" on the practice field Thursday. That's good news for a defensive line that got to Ben Roethlisberger five times last week even without Dunlap. Being able to get consistent pressure on Ravens QB Joe Flacco will be a huge part of any success Cincinnati might have against the Ravens. Cornerback Adam Jones also returned to practice and has said his hamstring injury suffered in Seattle is much better. Kelly Jennings still looks to get the start in Leon Hall's absence, but having Jones available gives the secondary a big boost.

On offense, WR AJ Green remains a game time decision for Sunday. Green hyper extended his knee coming down with a spectacular touchdown catch against the Steelers. His presence is critical for a Cincinnati offense that will look to take advantage of what has been a suspect Ravens defensive backfield.
