-- WR T.J. Houshmandzadeh remains out for Sunday's game at Oakland. The Bengals have yet to sign any of the three veteran wide receivers they had tryout on Monday (MarTay Jenkins, Troy Edwards and Trevor Gaylor).
Kelley Washington will need to produce more than two receptions for 18 yards
(his Denver numbers) against the Raiders. He needs to give the Bengals a
legitimate threat at the No. 3 receiver position.
-- WR Chad Johnson will step on the field Sunday with his idol, Jerry Rice, the only
receiver to have 1,800 receiving yards in a single season. That is Johnson's
goal. He has 1,705 to go in the final 15 games.
-- WB Jon Kitna
remains the starting quarterback. For now. With Shane Matthews available, coach
Marvin Lewis isn't expected to have as long a rope for Kitna as he might have
had with Akili Smith as the No. 2 quarterback.
-- ROT Willie Anderson (hamstring) is likely to miss Wednesday's practice but is hoping to
make his 50th consecutive start Sunday. They're hoping. The team is thin at

right tackle if Willie Anderson (hamstring) can't play.
Rudi Johnson (thigh) is out.
-- G Victor Leyva (upper chest
muscle) is out.
-- CB Tory James will play against his former
teammates Sunday. He was a member of the AFC Championship team but was released
in a salary cap purge. James has one interception for the Bengals.
