The Cincinnati Bengals will likely be without three defensive backs for this weekend's road game against the Cleveland Browns.

According to the team's injury report, cornerbacks Leon Hall and Dre Kirkpatrick and safety Reggie Nelson all have hamstring injuries and are doubtful to play.

Kirkpatrick was the only one who participated in practice this week, albeit on a limited basis.

Cornerback Terence Newman, who had an interception and a fumble recovery return for a touchdown last week against the Green Bay Packers, was a full go in Thursday and Friday's practices and is probable for the game.  He was nursing a knee injury.
