Bengals T Anderson to end streak of 116 consecutive starts

The Bengals (1-3) hoped that their bye week would allow them to get back some of their injured players, but they’re still severely limited heading into a pivotal game.

Linebackers Ahmad Brooks and Rashad Jeanty are expected to miss the game, leaving a hole in one of the league’s worst defenses. Running back Rudi Johnson and linebacker Caleb Miller also sat out practice on Wednesday with lingering injuries.

There was one encouraging sign: Chad Johnson fully participated in practice. The Pro Bowl receiver wore a boot on his left foot last week, helping him recover from a mild ankle sprain.

“We’ll be fine,” Chad Johnson said. “I think that bye was perfect. We’ve got a lot of people coming back that will be healthy.”

Actually, it’s not that many. And the list doesn’t include Anderson, who has anchored the line during his 12-year career.
