Cincinnati – The Detroit Lions will be missing the entire right side of their starting offensive line for Sunday’s matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Along with center Travis Swanson, who was ruled out Friday with a concussion, and guard T.J. Lang, who was listed as doubtful with a foot injury, right tackle Rick Wagner will remain sidelined for the third consecutive week with a sprain ankle.
The Bengals (5-9) have struggled in recent weeks, but the team still has one of the league’s better pass rushes. They’ve dropped opposing quarterbacks 38 times, which ranks 8th in the NFL.
In addition to the three starting linemen, the Lions scratched wide receiver Bradley Marquez, running backs Zach Zenner and Dwayne Washington, and defensive tackle Rodney Coe from Sunday’s lineup.
Detroit’s starting offensive line is expected to be Taylor Decker at left tackle, Joe Dahl at left guard, Graham Glasgow at center, Don Barclay at right guard, Corey Robinson at right tackle.
