The Cincinnati Bengals are facing a crucial divisional game against the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday night, taking on Lamar Jackson and the prolific Ravens offense. But they could be doing it without a couple of their most important players.

As the Bengals get ready to take on the Ravens on Thursday night, they are preparing to play without both of their top pass rushers as Sam Hubbard and Trey Hendrickson are likely to miss this week’s game with injuries.

With both of them out, defensive coordinator Lou Anarumo said the team is going to need more production from first-round pick Myles Murphy, Cam Sample, and Joseph Ossai on Thursday night.

“It’s not just on them. I think they had really good moments,” Anarumo said according to the Cincinnati Bengals team website. “But as a whole, that group needs to step up, especially, who knows, with Trey, if they’re both out, then those guys have to step up.”

Without Hubbard, the Cincinnati Bengals managed just one sack in Sunday afternoon’s game against the Houston Texans. They’ll have to get an improved pass rush this week in order to slow down Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens offense in the high-profile showdown.
