Injury report: Giovani Bernard expected to face Saints

Cincinnati Bengals running back Giovani Bernard is expected to play today against the Saints, a source tells NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.

Giovani has missed the last month with an MCL sprain.

In four games this season, Bernard has 155 yards rushing on 34 attempts and three touchdowns.

Other injuries we are keeping an eye on Sunday:

1. Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku, dealing with knee and rib injuries, is expected to play today if he doesn’t have a setback in warmups, sources say. Cornerback Denzel Ward (hip) is also slated to play, according to Rapoport.

2. Detroit Lions running back Kerryon Johnson, battling an ankle injury, is expected to play against the Bears, per Rapoport.

3. Indiananapolis Colts wide receiver Ryan Grant (ankle) is expected to play against the Jaguars, according to Rapoport.

4. Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Sammy Watkins (foot) is unlikely to play against the Cardinals. It’s mostly a precaution, and Watkins should be fine next week, sources tell Rapoport.

5. Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jakeem Grant, who has dealt with an Achilles injury the last few weeks and is listed as questionable, should play today, per Rapoport.

6. There is a good chance that the New England Patriots will have running back Sony Michel (knee) back in the lineup today, a source tells Rapoport. Michel has missed the last two games.
