The Facts: The Bengals saw the return of Higgins, who had a full practice Thursday a day after missing Wednesday’s work with an illness.
Diehards Line: The Bengals have a short practice report for this week. They do have one big name who won’t play in the wild-card playoff as coach Zac Taylor already ruled out right guard Alex Cappa. Cappa injured his left ankle in the Week 18 victory over the Ravens, and he is on a scooter and wearing a walking boot. Max Scharping is expected to take Cappa’s place. Cornerback Cam Taylor-Britt (groin) was the only other player on the practice report. He remained limited.
