Bengals vs. Browns inactive in NFL Week 9: Cam Sample, Auden Tate won’t play


The Cincinnati Bengals and Cleveland Browns released their list of inactive players leading up to Sunday’s Battle of Ohio.

Here are the players who won’t dress for the Bengals on Sunday:

  • CB Vernon Hargreaves
  • WR Trenton Irwin
  • occupational therapist Fred Johnson
  • DL Cam Sample
  • WR Auden Tate

Sample (knee/illness) and Tate (thigh) are the only injured players. Hargreaves was expected to be inactive after being claimed by the team this week, and Johnson has been a regular inactive this year when the offensive line has been healthy.

Hakeem Adeniji, who spent the first eight weeks on the NFI list, will dress for the first time this year. The same goes for rookie defensive tackle Tyler Shelvin.

Irwin is an idle surprise. He’s usually been active on compatriot Mike Thomas when both were healthy, but Thomas gets the nod this week instead.

Here are the inactives for the Browns:

  • WR Odell Beckham Jr.
  • DT Andrew Billings
  • G Hjalte Froholdt
  • TE Miller Forristall
  • Joe Jackson
  • CB Grass Miller
  • DT Tommy Togiai

Beckham Jr. is technically still on the Browns’ roster, so he’s one of the inactive seven. All of the players listed as questionable for Cleveland are playing, including setters Jadeveon Clowney, who has suffered multiple injuries, and Takkarist McKinley (groin).

Andrew Billings seems like a healthy scratch. The defensive tackle played four years in Cincinnati before joining Cleveland in the 2020 offseason and pulled out of the season due to COVID-19.

Jack Conklin (elbow) was called out on Friday but has since been placed on the reserve/injured list.
