Chris Crocker DB CIN Jan 05 '13
Bengals declared FS Chris Crocker, CB Jason Allen, TE Richard Quinn, WR Dane Sanzenbacher, DTs Devon Still and Brandon Thompson, and RB Dan Herron inactive for Saturday's Wild Card game versus the Texans.
BenJarvus Green-Ellis (hamstring, probable) is active, as expected. Crocker is dealing with a quadriceps injury, and Nate Clements will get the start next to Reggie Nelson. Allen has a hamstring injury of his own. The other five inactives have found themselves there all season long.

Bengals FS Chris Crocker (quadricep) is listed as doubtful for the Wild Card Round.
Crocker figures to be replaced by former cornerback Nate Clements, who was benched after midseason following a failed conversion to safety. It's a concern for the way the Bengals will defend Texans TEs Owen Daniels and Garrett Graham.

Bengals S Chris Crocker suffered a quad injury in Sunday's game against the Ravens and is doubtful to return.
Crocker was replaced in the lineup by Taylor Mays. The injury could loom large for playoff implications, as Mays is susceptible to the pass. We'll know more about Crocker's injury as the week progresses.
Chris Crocker DB CIN Apr 06 '12
Bengals released S Chris Crocker.
Crocker is entering his age-32 season with three consecutive years of nagging knee injuries. A 38-game starter in Cincinnati, Crocker graded out below average in coverage and run support by Pro Football Focus for 2011. Outside of corner/safety hybrid Jason Allen, the Bengals have no proven depth beyond Reggie Nelson at safety. Alabama's Mark Barron could be an option in the first round.
Chris Crocker DB CIN Jan 29 '12
Bengals FS Chris Crocker underwent a "procedure" on his right knee after the season.
Crocker has had knee problems since tearing his right MCL and PCL in November of 2010. He rarely practiced on Wednesdays in 2011. Crocker turns 32 in March and is due a $1.75 million salary. The Bengals need to begin thinking about long-term replacements, but for now Crocker seems likely to return in 2012.
