Bengals' Newman, Harrison to sit Sunday

The Sports NetworkDecember 22, 2013 

Cincinnati, OH ( - The Cincinnati Bengals will be without two key members of their defense Sunday against Minnesota, as both cornerback Terence Newman and linebacker James Harrison were listed as inactive for the contest.

Newman missed last week's game against Pittsburgh because of a knee injury and missed practice all week. He was considered doubtful on Friday's injury report.

Harrison was a full participant in Friday's practice after skipping the previous two sessions while recovering from a concussion he sustained early in last week's game. He had been listed as questionable on Friday, but was on the team's inactive list Sunday.

Defensive end Carlos Dunlap, also recovering from a concussion suffered last week, is active. He also practiced Friday after missing the first two days of work during the week and was questionable on the injury report.
