Bengals thin in the secondary
By James Walker
The Cincinnati Bengals' injury woes continue in the secondary.
Starters Johnathan Joseph (ankle) and Chinedum Ndukwe (knee) are both scratches Sunday against the Miami Dolphins. That leaves backups Morgan Trent and Reggie Nelson to start at cornerback and safety, respectively.
Adam Jones was having a solid season as the third cornerback until a neck injury last week put him on injured reserve. Safety Roy Williams also is out with a knee injury. Look for Miami (3-3) to try to exploit the Bengals' (2-4) thin secondary Sunday.
