CINCINNATI (AP) — The Bengals are missing their two starting tight ends for the final regular-season game against the Ravens.
Jermaine Gresham (hamstring) and rookie Tyler Eifert (neck) are inactive for the game on Sunday. Alex Smith and Orson Charles start in their place.
Pro Bowl linebacker Vontaze Burfict is in the starting lineup. Burfict was questionable for the game while recovering from a concussion.
Running back Ray Rice (thigh), receiver Torrey Smith (thigh) and linebacker Elvis Dumervil (ankle) all are playing for the Ravens after being listed as questionable.
The Bengals have already won the AFC North and are trying to get a win and the No. 2 seed. The Ravens are trying to get the final wild-card berth.
