Bengals missing 3 key players vs Browns

CINCINNATI (AP) — The Bengals are missing three key players for their game on Sunday against the intrastate rival Cleveland Browns.

Middle linebacker Rey Maualuga, defensive back Chris Crocker and right guard Kevin Zeitler are inactive. Crocker missed practice last week with a hamstring injury, and Zeitler was sidelined by an injured foot.

Maualuga missed his third straight game with an injured left knee. Linebacker James Harrison had been listed as questionable with a calf injury, but was active for the game.

The Browns were coming off a bye week that gave them time to heal. Right guard Jason Pinkston had been listed as questionable with an ankle injury, but was active. There were no changes in Cleveland's starting lineups.
