Williams’ likely absence couple with Derron Smith leaving the practice squad to sign with Cleveland on Thursday means the Bengals only only have three healthy safeties in George Iloka, Clayton Fejedelem and Josh Shaw.
Also of note is that the fact that wide receiver Tyler Boyd is not listed on the injury report. He hasn’t played since injuring his knee Oct. 8 against Buffalo.

His absence from the injury report means all seven wide receivers are healthy. The Bengals typically only dress five on game day. There is a good chance Boyd will be a healthy scratch, leaving the question of whether they will make rookie first-round pick John Ross active for just the third time this year.
The inactive list is due at 11:30 a.m. Sunday ahead of the 1 p.m. game.
