Cincinnati Bengals just one win away Super Bowl 56 and will have a daunting task ahead on Sunday entering Arrowhead Stadium to take on the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship game.

The Bengals head into the showdown relatively healthy with just three players carrying injury designations. Here’s a look at Cincinnati’s inactive and injured list, with official inactives being released 90 minutes before kickoff.

Edge Cam Sample (questionable) – groin
WR Stanley Morgan (doubtful) – hamstrings
DT Josh Tupou (questionable) – knee

The impact

Cincinnati won’t be too affected by such major injuries ahead of the AFC Championship, as Sample, Morgan and Tupou are all rotational players. They will have their top producers in place for the showdown with the Chiefs.

Quarterback Joe Burrow (knee) and wide receiver Tee Higgins (thumb) notably made appearances on the injury report this week. However, they were full participants for all three days of training and will be fine for Sunday.
