Bengals to Face Ravens without Cappa and maybe Higgins

Publish Date: 01/09/2023
Fact checked by: Mark Lewis

Injuries hit the Bengals again.

The Cincinnati Bengals will play the Baltimore Ravens next Sunday night at 8:15, and they will do it without starting right guard Alex Cappa; the news gets even worse when you find out Tee Higgins may miss the game also as he is dealing with a hip pointer that he for on a hit Sunday against the Ravens.

The Bengals have had to deal with injuries all season as they lost Lael Collins a few weeks ago, and losing Cappa means they will have an entirely new right side of the line when they face the Baltimore Ravens. Look for veteran backup Max Scharping to take Cappa’s place.

Higgins hip pointer is not good for a Bengals offense that has struggled for much of the last six weeks; in those six games, they have topped thirty points just one time. The Bengals have been clutch on offense in big spots, but overall, the offensive production has been inconsistent.

The Bengals really struggled on Sunday against a stout Ravens defense; now I will give you that the Bengals played very vanilla in the game, knowing chances were good they would be playing the Ravens again. Still, you have to wonder about the effect these two new injuries will have on the Bengals chances.

Look for Trenton Irwin to get the start if Higgins can’t go. Irwin has made some huge plays for this team this season and will have to come up big again on Sunday.

The Ravens also have questions, like who will be healthy enough to play Quarterback. Lamar Jackson has been out for over a month now, and we still don’t know if he will be able to return. Tyler Huntley is also still questionable, so the possibility exists that it could be Anthony Brown again. Even if it’s Brown, the ravens will be a much more formidable team with J.K. Dobbins back and their top receivers back in the lineup.

The Ravens stockpiled their defense in the off-season to beat Cincinnati, and the Bengals will have to be their best on Sunday night to advance.
