  Bengals | Tyler Boyd interested in contract extension    Sat Dec 8, 11:44 AM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd said he would be open to signing a contract extension during the offseason, as opposed to waiting to test the free agency waters after his rookie deal expires following the 2019 season.

Footballguys view: The Bengals have made a lot of prudent moves extending their own before free agency, so this would match their frugal way of doing business. AJ Green is a free agent in 2020, so Boyd could be the #1 again in two years if he stays in Cincinnati.

  Bengals | Cincinnati's injury report for Week 14    Fri Dec 7, 04:22 PM

Cincinnati Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict (concussion), OT Cordy Glenn (back), CB Dre Kirkpatrick (ankle) and CB Tony McRae (concussion) did not practice all week and have been ruled out for Week 14 versus the Los Angeles Chargers. WR Joshua Malone (hamstring) was upgraded to a full practice Friday, Dec. 7, and is listed as questionable. DE Carlos Dunlap (hip), DE Michael Johnson (pectoral) and RB Joe Mixon (foot) fully participated in practice Friday and have been removed from the injury report.

Footballguys view: The offensive line will have a big hole with Glenn out and they are facing the Chargers ultra-talented pair of defensive ends this week. The rushing matchup against the Bengals remains very good with Burfict on the sidelines.

  Bengals | Joe Mixon looking good to go    Fri Dec 7, 01:35 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (foot) looked good in practice Friday, Dec. 7, and is expected to play in Week 14.

Footballguys view: Mixon is a low ceiling RB2 this week against the Chargers with the Jeff Driskel Bengals offering much less in terms of sustained drives and points than the Andy Dalton Bengals.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (foot) participated in practice for a second straight day Thursday, Dec. 6. He was limited the previous day with a foot injury.

Footballguys view: Mixon is still a safe RB2 this week, but his ceiling is a lot lower in the Jeff Driskel offense than the Andy Dalton offense.

  Bengals | A.J. Green to IR    Wed Dec 5, 10:44 AM

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) was placed on the Reserve/Injured Wednesday, Dec. 5. Davontae Harris (knee) was activated from the Reserve/Injured list.

Footballguys view: This move was expected after Green couldn't get many snaps in against the Broncos before aggravating his toe injury in Week 13. He's under contract through 2019, but after having finished two of the last three years on Injured Reserve it will be interesting to see if the Bengals make a move to keep him around longer than that. Green finished the 2018 season having appeared in nine games, catching 46 passes for 694 yards and six touchdowns.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (foot) was spotted wearing a protective boot on his right foot Monday, Dec. 3. Head coach Marvin Lewis had no update regarding his status, however.

Footballguys view: We'll know more about Green's status during the week of practice. He missed time due to a toe injury and briefly played against the Broncos on Sunday before getting hurt again.

  Bengals | C.J. Uzomah racks up five catches    Sun Dec 2, 06:14 PM

Cincinnati Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah registered five receptions for 33 yards on seven targets in Week 13 against the Denver Broncos.

Footballguys view: Uzomah is becoming a viable PPR streamer at tight end with Jeff Driskel focusing on more short safe passing.

  Bengals | Tyler Boyd just misses triple digits    Sun Dec 2, 06:05 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd posted six receptions for 97 yards on eight targets in Week 13 against the Denver Broncos.

Footballguys view: Boyd is set up to be a reliable play down the stretch with AJ Green likely sidelined. He's been one of the few bright spots for the Bengals offense lately.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon racked up 12 carries for 82 yards in Week 13 against the Denver Broncos and he added two grabs for 13 yards.

Footballguys view: Mixon still has the look of one of the next big things at running back, but his offense isn't supporting big games for him. He'll be a low ceiling RB2 against the Chargers next week.

  Bengals | Jeff Driskel so-so in Week 13 loss    Sun Dec 2, 05:56 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Jeff Driskel completed 25-of-38 passes for 236 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Week 13 against the Denver Broncos.

Footballguys view: Driskel lost AJ Green early and didn't do much as a runner, but wasn't a complete disaster against the Broncos. He's still only a desperation QB2/Superflex next week at the Chargers house.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (foot) has been declared out for the rest of the Week 13 game Sunday, Dec. 2, after being carted off the field in the second quarter with a right-foot injury.

Footballguys view: Green's toe injury was aggravated and he was in great pain. He'll be almost certainly be out for the rest of the season. Tyler Boyd is the clear #1 receiver going forward.

  Bengals | Andy Dalton underwent surgery    Sat Dec 1, 02:18 AM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton (thumb) underwent surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right thumb Tuesday, Nov. 27.

Footballguys view: Dalton said he will be ready to go when the team's offseason training program begins in April....but with zero remaining in dead money on his contract one has to wonder if Dalton will return in 2019. It's not a guarantee and something worth watching as the offseason rolls towards us. The Bengals move forward in 2018 with Jeff Driskel as their starting quarterback, starting this Sunday at home against the Broncos.

  Bengals | Week 13 injury report for Cincinnati    Fri Nov 30, 12:49 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Joshua Malone (hamstring) and CB Tony McRae (concussion) did not practice all week and have been ruled out for Week 13 versus the Denver Broncos. OT Cordy Glenn (back) has also been sidelined all week in practice and is listed as doubtful. CB Darqueze Dennard (illness), DE Carlos Dunlap (hip), WR A.J. Green (toe), CB Dre Kirkpatrick (shoulder) and LB Nick Vigil (knee) were full participants in practice Friday, Nov. 30, and no longer appear on the injury report.

Footballguys view: Green is safe to put in lineups, but there is risk because he's playing with a backup quarterback facing a defense with a strong pass rush. The Bengals will also likely start a third string tackle. Vigil coming back is a boost to sagging defense.

  Bengals | Andre Smith back with Bengals    Thu Nov 29, 12:16 PM

Free-agent OT Andre Smith (Cardinals) was re-signed to an undisclosed deal by the Cincinnati Bengals Thursday, Nov. 29.

Footballguys view: If Smith takes the field at left tackle for the Bengals, the Broncos pass rush will likely have his second field day of the year against him. This could slow down the Jeff Driskel sleeper train. Whether Smith is in or its Cedric Ogbuehi, it's going to be tough to stop the Broncos pass rushers from getting home.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 28.

Footballguys view: Marvin Lewis believes that Green will play this week against the Broncos. With Jeff Driskel at quarterback, we can recommend Green as a WR2 in Week 13.

  Bengals | A.J. Green says he'll play    Wed Nov 28, 11:40 AM

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) said he'll play in Week 13 against the Denver Broncos.

Footballguys view: Green's return doesn't automatically put him back in your fantasy lineup...mainly because the Bengals are moving forward with Jeff Driskel at quarterback for the rest of the year. If Green is going to play on Sunday against the Broncos, we'd see him more as a high-end WR2 than his normal WR1 status. Stay tuned.

  Bengals | Andy Dalton placed on IR    Mon Nov 26, 04:34 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton (thumb) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Nov. 26. QB Tom Savage was claimed off waivers from the San Francisco 49ers in a corresponding move.

Footballguys view: Dalton's future with the team is up in the air, even though he's not set to hit the open market until 2021. If they release Dalton in the offseason, they can save $16.2 million in cap space and there is no dead money according to Spotrac.com. The Bengals move forward with Jeff Driskel as their starter.

  Bengals | John Ross has TD in third straight    Sun Nov 25, 07:24 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross posted three grabs for 31 yards and a touchdown in Week 12 against the Cleveland Browns, extending his touchdown streak to three games.

Footballguys view: Ross has shown a knack for scoring in his second year, but this offense isn't setting him up for explosive plays. He's just end of the bench depth with the Bengals offensive problems, but his arrow is pointing up long term if the deep passing can get on line.

  Bengals | Tyler Boyd posts 85 yards, score    Sun Nov 25, 06:48 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd posted seven grabs for 85 yards and a touchdown on eight targets in Week 12 against the Cleveland Browns.

Footballguys view: Boyd had a big reception on a quasi-hail mary that was nullified by penalty or he would have had an even bigger day. He may see some of Chris Harris against the Broncos next week, but showed he's still a strong WR3/Flex play even if the backup quarterback is in.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon rushed 14 times for 89 yards in the Week 12 game against the Cleveland Browns with seven grabs for 66 yards on seven targets.

Footballguys view: Mixon looked like one of the best all-around backs in the league today even though the Bengals offense didn't give him the touchdown opportunities that other top backs got today. He'll remain a strong RB at worst against the Broncos next week.

  Bengals | Jeff Driskel tosses TD in home loss    Sun Nov 25, 06:28 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Jeff Driskel completed 17-of-29 passes for 155 yards, one touchdown and no interception in Week 12 against the Cleveland Browns, coming on for the injured QB Andy Dalton (thumb).

Footballguys view: The offense didn't seem to suffer when Driskel came in although the Bengals were facing a team nursing a huge lead. The Broncos defense isn't letting up, so the Bengals offensive outlook is dimmer next week no matter who starts at quarterback.
