BenJarvus Green-Ellis injured
The Bengals had hoped to get their running game moving after managing only 14 yards during a 13-10 win in Pittsburgh last week. The loss of Green-Ellis left them with Brian Leonard, Cedric Peerman and Daniel Herron as running backs for a game that had little significance for either playoff-bound team.
Green-Ellis missed practice time during the week because of illness. He had been listed as probable for the game and warmed up with the rest of the team. The Bengals announced shortly before the kickoff that he'd hurt his hamstring and wasn't expected to play.
