Additionally, Cincinnati has four players currently on the reserve / COVID-19 list.
CINCINNATI – Los Cincinnati Bengals are left without multiple attendees due to COVID-19 for the second week in a row.
Receivers coach Bob Bicknell, cornerback coach Steve Jackson and safeties Robert Levingston will miss the game in Washington, the Bengals announced Friday.
Bicknell and Jackson were two of four coaches who missed the Week 10 game against Pittsburgh.
Livigston took Jackson’s job last week against the Steelers. Coach Jordan Kovacs will replace Livingston on game day, according to the team. Assistant Troy Walters will take over Bicknell’s job and defensive coordinator Lou Anarumo will replace Jackson.
The Bengals recovered two assistant coaches last week who were out due to COVID. Linebackers coach Al Golden and defensive assistant Mark Duffner are expected to return after being out last week.
Cincinnati has four players currently on the reserve / COVID-19 list. That includes practice team wide receiver Stanley Morgan, who was placed on the roster Friday afternoon.
Deep in the Bengals, Vonn Bell, said it is imperative to handle the situation in the best way possible and find ways to minimize absences.
“We’re going to have to speak on that sideline and have the guys stick together,” Bell said earlier this week. “You know that adversity happens in a game. Things happen. They just have to keep everyone in the mindset for the next play and move on. “
