The Bengals have yet to move Vontaze Burfict to the active roster, and Marvin Lewis has been non-committal about playing Burfict tomorrow night, but Burfict absolutely will play vs Miami and likely will play quite a bit.

Source: Eifert not expected to play vs. Dolphins

Tyler Eifert, who has not played yet this season because of an ankle injury, is not expected to play in the Bengals' game Thursday against the Miami Dolphins, a team source told ESPN.

Bob Holtzman ESPN 

Bengals TE Tyler Eifert has hinted he may play Thursday vs Miami, but I'm told he is not expected to return this week. A team source says a week 5 return is possible. Eifert has not participated in a full practice yet and has not done any 11-on-11 work.

Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict was back from suspension today, and his teammates, particularly Adam Jones, couldn't wait to see him.

Katherine Terrell ESPN Staff Writer 

Dre Kirkpatrick and Derron Smith did not practice today. Tyler Eifert, George Iloka, Pat Sims, Shawn Williams and James Wright were limited. Kirkpatrick said he had a calf strain but he's listed with a hamstring issue. Mike Nugent (shoulder) participated fully. Important to note that this was a walkthrough today.

Dolphins TE Cameron (concussion) out Thursday

Dolphins coach Adam Gase said Monday that tight end Jordan Cameron has a concussion and won't play Thursday, while running back Arian Foster, who has a groin injury, likely is out as well.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

QB Trevor Siemian and the Broncos beat the Bengals blitz scheme twice on Sunday with outside double-moves for touchdowns. The first one over the top to Emmanuel Sanders came on the out and up with the second score to Demaryius Thomas on the stutter and go. Two different routes/stems, but the same exact concept --seven-man protection with front side dig routes (square-ins).That gave the Broncos and Siemian time for the double-moves to develop with the receivers winning one-on-one matchups.
