Injury report: Giovani Bernard expected to face Saints

Cincinnati Bengals running back Giovani Bernard is expected to play Sunday against the New Orleans Saints, a source tells NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.

Giovani has missed the last month with an MCL sprain.

In four games this season, Bernard has 155 yards rushing on 34 attempts and three touchdowns.

In other Bengals injury news, wide receiver A.J. Green is expected to miss next week’s game against the Baltimore Ravens because of a toe injury that his kept him out the last two weeks, Rapoport reported.

Other injuries we are keeping an eye on Sunday, per Rapoport:

1. Philadelphia Eagles running back Darren Sproles, who injured his hamstring last week in practice just as he was set to return, is expected to miss multiple weeks with this latest injury. One estimate pegged his return at 3-4 weeks.

2. Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku, dealing with knee and rib injuries, is expected to play today if he doesn’t have a setback in warmups. Cornerback Denzel Ward (hip) is also slated to play.

3. The Pittsburgh Steelers are optimistic running back James Conner will clear concussion protocol ahead of their next game against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Nov. 18. Conner suffered the injury in Thursday’s win over the Carolina Panthers.

4. Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco‘s hip injury for Week 11 against the Bengals into question. The team will monitor how he does in practice this week.

5. Detroit Lions running back Kerryon Johnson, battling an ankle injury, is expected to play against the Bears.

6. Indiananapolis Colts wide receiver Ryan Grant (ankle) is expected to play against the Jaguars.

7. Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Sammy Watkins (foot) is unlikely to play against the Cardinals. It’s mostly a precaution, and Watkins should be fine next week.

8. Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jakeem Grant, who has dealt with an Achilles injury the last few weeks and is listed as questionable, should play today.

9. There is a good chance that the New England Patriots will have running back Sony Michel (knee) back in the lineup Sunday. Michel has missed the last two games.
