Meanwhile, Baltimore LT Stanley, who’s already been inactive for three games this season, is ruled out due to a knee injury.

Bengals Hendrickson Good to Go
While the absences of Higgins and Hubbard will certainly be felt on both sides of the ball for the Bengals, there was also some good news on the injury front. RDE Trey Hendrickson will be playing.
#Bengals DE Trey Hendrickson is now expected to suit up for tomorrow's game and play through his hyperextended knee pain, per The Enquirer.

Hendrickson suffered a hyperextended knee in the loss to the Texans last week. Following an MRI, he’s been cleared to play and his injury designation removed.
Cincinnati Bengals Injury Report
|Devin Cochran-T||Knee||Out (IR)|
|Devonnsha Maxwell-DT||Knee||Out (IR)|
|Tycen Anderson-S||Knee||Out (IR)|
|Chase Brown-RB||Hamstring||Out (IR)|
Making matters worse at WR is the fact that backup Andrei Iosivas (knee) is also out. However, there’s a chance that WR Charlie Jones (thumb) may be activated from IR in time for the game. He’s currently listed as questionable.
Van Noy Game-Time Decision for Ravens
Like Stanley, Ravens starting RCB Marlon Humphrey was a non-participant in practice this week. Although he’s listed by the team as day-to-day, Humphrey is carrying an injury designation of doubtful. It appears unlikely that he’ll be playing against the Bengals.
#Ravens OLB Kyle Van Noy (questionable, groin) is considered a game-time decision, per source. Expected to test out the injury pregame.
Van Noy has balled off the couch with 5 sacks in seven games.

Veteran LB Kyle Van Noy (groin) will be a game-time decision. If he can’t go, that will severely hamper Baltimore’s depth at the position. Already LB Trenton Simpson (concussion) and Tyus Bowser (knee) have been ruled out.

|Kyle Van Noy-LB||Groin||Questionable|
|David Ojabo-LB||Ankle||Out (IR)|

|Nick Moore-LS||Undisclosed||Out (NFIL)|

WR Devin Duvernay (hamstring) is listed as questionable, as is safety Daryl Worley (hamstring) on the Ravens injury report.
How Could Injuries Affect Bengals vs Ravens Betting Lines?
The Bengals play a three-receiver set and Higgins is a key cog in their passing arsenal. His 12.1 yards per reception leads the team. Of his 27 receptions, 19 have gone for first downs. The absence of Higgins might make Bengals WR Ja’Marr Chase or Tyler Boyd attractive possibilities in the Bengals vs Ravens player props.
Trenton Irwin figures to start in place of Higgins. Cam Sample will step up into Hubbard’s spot.
The injury-plagued Stanley has missed 35 of the Ravens’ last 54 games. Fortunately for Baltimore, starting RT Morgan Moses (shoulder) was a full participant in practice and saw his injury designation deleted. He’s missed the past two games. At LG, John Simpson is battling both illness and a shoulder ailment. He’s listed as questionable.
Baltimore’s OL depth is being tested. Patrick Mekari is expected to take Stanley’s spot. Ben Cleveland will start at LG if John Simpson can’t go. Backup guard Andrew Vorhees (knee) is out.
Besides being a depth receiver on offense, Duvernay is also Baltimore’s #1 kick and punt returner. Keaton Mitchell will step into both roles if Duvernay can’t answer the bell. Either Ronald Darby or Rock Ya-Sin would start if Humphrey is unable to play.
