Injury Roundup: Joe Burrow Ready, Markus Bailey and Darius Phillips Questionable

Cincinnati is relatively healthy going into Sunday's game against Chicago.

CINCINNATI — Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow wasn't listed on Friday's game status report, which means the 24-year-old will play in Week 2 against the Bears. 

He tweaked his left ankle last Sunday against the Vikings, but was a full participant in practice this week. 

The same can't be said for cornerback Trae Waynes, who will miss his 18th straight regular season game. He's dealing with a hamstring issue. There's a chance he practices next week, but the team is playing it safe with the 29-year-old as he makes his way back. 

Markus Bailey (knee) and Darius Phillips (thigh) are both questionable this week, but they're expected to play against the Bears. 

Starting left guard Quinton Spain didn't practice on Friday due to the birth of his child. He's expected to travel with the team and start for the Bengals on Sunday. 

Check out the complete game status report below.
