Week 6 Injury Report (Bengals)

For the third straight day L.J. Fort, Darrius Heyward-Bey and Morgan Burnett did not participate in practice, and Coach Mike Tomlin has ruled out both Heyward-Bey and Burnett for Sunday.

Fort, who is listed as doubtful for Sunday, was injured against the Falcons last week when he was one of the linebackers who stepped in for then injured Vince Williams. Fort said it was frustrating to suffer the injury when he finally got an opportunity to get some snaps, but he was able to finish out the game.

“I didn’t want to come out,” said Fort.

The good news, though, is Williams is back. Williams was a full-go in practice all week and is ready to play on Sunday.

“It feels fantastic,” said Williams of being back out on the field. “To see how well the defense was playing, and not being able to contribute, it was heart-breaking. I was proud of them. There is only one thing better than actually being out there kicking (butt) with your friends, and that’s watching your friends kick (butt).”

Burnett has missed the last three games with a groin injury, and with him out rookie Terrell Edmunds has stepped up big.

“His plate is really full,” said Sean Davis. “He is playing top-notch guys. He is playing the best athletes week in and week out. We are asking him to do a lot. I feel he is adjusting well, he is playing well.

“I am always giving him advice. I would rather he learn from my mistakes. I am always trying to give him insight on what to do, what not to do. I have been there, done that, so I want him to learn from me.”
