Jacksonville Jaguars Injury Report: DE Aaron Kampman Cleared but Doubtful to Play Versus Cincinnati Bengals

Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Aaron Kampman has been cleared to play but likely won't compete in this Sunday's matchup versus the Cincinnati Bengals. 

Kampman, who was out most of last season with a torn ACL, has missed the first month of the season because of side effects from the knee injury.

Head coach Jack Del Rio said Kampman could play this week, but will likely hold him out just to be safe, according to CBSSports.com.

Del Rio jokingly said that the only way Kampman would play this week would be if "we have someone who slips on a banana peel between now and Sunday."

Jacksonville's defense has been solid this season, but the team has struggled to get to the quarterback, logging only six sacks. Only two teams in the NFL have recorded fewer sacks. 

The Jaguars will be without several other key players on defense, as cornerback Derek Cox will miss his third-straight game of the season, this time with a groin injury. Running back and special teams stud Montell Owens is out with a knee injury. 

Defensive tackle Tyson Alualu and left tackle Eugene Monroe are probable for this week's contest, while another special teams standout and receiver Kassim Osgood (hamstring) is doubtful. Joining Osgood on the 'doubtful' list is tight end Zach Miller (shoulder) and offensive lineman Jason Spitz (quadriceps.)

Monroe did not play last week versus the New Orleans Saints.
