Alex Cappa has not missed a snap yet this season for the Cincinnati Bengals, however, he did miss practice on Thursday due to an illness. That immediately put his status for the Bengals' Week 7 game against the Atlanta Falcons into question. Luckily, Cappa woke up on Friday morning feeling well enough to get back out on the practice field.

The Bengals offensive line has struggled to start the year, surrendering 3.7 sacks per game, which ranks tied for second worst in the NFL. However, losing someone as reliable as Cappa, even for one week, wouldn't have helped the cause.

Luckily, the Falcons rank dead last in the NFL in sacks per game at 1.3. So, even if Cappa or the rest of the offensive line isn't exactly feeling 100 percent, they should still be able to keep Joe Burrow upright most of the day on Sunday, which is key to him being able to find the Bengals big playmakers down field

The Bengals are 6.5-point home favorites against the Falcons, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest Week 7 NFL odds.
