Bengals tackle Andre Smith inactive vs Browns

CINCINNATI (AP) The Bengals are missing right tackle Andre Smith for their game against the Cleveland Browns.

Smith sprained his left ankle last Sunday and was in a protective boot. Marshall Newhouse took his place for the AFC North game.

The Bengals also have two backups at linebacker for the second game in a row with Vontaze Burfict and Rey Maualuga sidelined.

Running back Giovani Bernard is inactive for the second straight game with a sore shoulder and hip. Adam ''Pacman'' Jones took the spot of cornerback Leon Hall, who is recovering from a concussion.

The Browns are without tight end Jordan Cameron, who also has a concussion, and leading receiver Andrew Hawkins, who has a sore knee and thigh. Taylor Gabriel replaces Hawkins.
