Bengals won’t have two assistant coaches Sunday


The Bengals were without three assistant coaches for Sunday’s loss to the Washington Football Team due to COVID-19 protocols.

They were without four coaches the previous week.

This week, Cincinnati is down only two assistants.

The team announced defensive line coach Nick Eason and secondary/cornerbacks coach Steve Jackson will not attend Sunday’s game against the Giants for COVID-19-related reasons.

Defensive assistant coach Gerald Chatman will assume Eason’s responsibilities for the game, while defensive coordinator Lou Anarumo will take over for Jackson.

A report earlier this week indicated Eason had tested positive for COVID-19.
