Hill, who Head Coach John Fox called "outstanding," offers excellent size and power with surprising agility and good feet."He's physical, has good vision, he has good burst through the hole," Fox said. "I think he has good hands. They don't utilize him as much in that role but he's a big reason why they're fighting for their division championship and he's been a big part of that, especially down the stretch."With Nate Irving and Danny Trevathan on injured reserve and Brandon Marshall battling a foot injury, Johnson may start at middle linebacker on Sunday, while Davis could be called upon for meaningful snaps as well, like he was a week ago. Johnson is one of the few healthy veterans at the position, and brings plenty of thump filling gaps in the run game, while Jack Del Rio has praised Davis' preparation since joining the team a few weeks ago.If the pair can meet the standard the Broncos' linebackers have set this season in run defense and keep Hill's gains to a minimum, a key part of the Bengals' attack could be cut out, forcing Andy Dalton to throw more often.
