Carlos Dunlap misses Bengals' practice Wednesday

Cincinnati Bengals defensive end Carlos Dunlap did not practice Wednesday for undisclosed reasons, according to Coley Harvey of ESPN.

What It Means:

Because the reason for Dunlap's absence is unknown, so is his status for Week 1.

The Bengals may not need Dunlap as much this week as they face the Oakland Raiders. The Raiders finished 2014 ranked 29th in our schedule-adjusted Passing Net Expected Points per play. Our projections have Dunlap finishing the season with 58 tackles and 8 sacks.
