Bengals cornerback Leon Hall will miss a game on Thursday night against the Cleveland Browns because of a concussion.

Hall was hurt in the second half of a 33-23 win over Jacksonville. Adam "Pacman" Jones is expected to move into his spot against Cleveland (5-3), with Dre Kirkpatrick taking over as the No. 3 cornerback.

Cincinnati (5-2-1) also will be missing linebacker Vontaze Burfict for a second game following knee surgery. Linebacker Rey Maualuga is doubtful with a strained left hamstring that has sidelined him the past three games.

Running back Giovani Bernard also is doubtful with shoulder and hip injuries after missing the game against Jacksonville. Right tackle Andre Smith is expected to sit out with a sprained left ankle.
