  Bengals | Giovani Bernard does not practice    Wed Oct 17, 05:35 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (knee, toe) did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

Footballguys view: The Bengals travel to Kansas City to play the Chiefs on Sunday night. At this point it doesn't seem like Bernard is going to be back. Joe Mixon should get quite a bit of work as a runner and receiver out of the backfield in Week 7.

  Bengals | Tyler Kroft to return at some point    Tue Oct 16, 12:45 AM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Kroft (foot) 'should' return to action at some point this year, according to head coach Marvin Lewis.

Footballguys view: Kroft injured his foot in Week 5 against the Dolphins and missed the game on Sunday against the Steelers. It seems like he's out indefinitely with this injury. The Bengals will continue to use C.J. Uzomah as their top tight end while Kroft is out.

  Bengals | Tyler Boyd scores pair of TDs    Sun Oct 14, 06:11 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd racked up seven grabs for 62 yards and two touchdowns on nine targets in Week 6 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Footballguys view: Boyd was on fire going into Week 5, but slowed down against the Dolphins. The Steelers defense lost him twice in the red zone to account for his third big game in six weeks. He'll be a must play against the Chiefs next week.

  Bengals | A.J. Green targeted 12 times in loss    Sun Oct 14, 05:52 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon rushed 11 times for 64 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 against the Pittsburgh Steelers and he added four grabs for 20 yards on seven targets.

Footballguys view: Mixon didn't get a chance to get in a groove in the running game, but he was able to score the go ahead touchdown to salvage his week. He'll have a high ceiling against the Chiefs next week.

  Bengals | John Ross unlikely to play?    Sat Oct 13, 06:39 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (groin) is not expected to play this week despite being listed as questionable, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Katherine Terrell.

Footballguys view: The Bengals are used to Ross missing time. The 2017 first-round pick has missed more games than he's played in over the last two years. A.J. Green and Tyler Boyd will be the leading receivers against the Steelers on Sunday.

  Bengals | Giovani Bernard, Tyler Kroft out for Week 6    Fri Oct 12, 12:28 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (knee) and TE Tyler Kroft (foot) have been ruled out for Week 6 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Footballguys view: CJ Uzomah should have tight end targets to himself in this one with Kroft out, and in a matchup that has been good to tight ends this year. He's a viable streamer.

  Bengals | Cincinnati's Thursday injury report    Thu Oct 11, 02:24 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (knee), TE Tyler Kroft (foot) and C Billy Price (foot) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 11. CB William Jackson III (knee), OT Cedric Ogbuehi (wrist) and WR John Ross (groin) were limited. OG Clint Boling (hip), LB Preston Brown (ankle), DE Michael Johnson (knee) and DE Carl Lawson (ankle) participated fully.

Footballguys view: With Kroft banged up, CJ Uzomah should dominate tight end targets for the Bengals against the Steelers. Pittsburgh has had trouble defending tight ends this year, so Uzomah is a suitable streamer.

  Bengals | Thomas Rawls shown door    Tue Oct 9, 04:14 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Thomas Rawls was waived Tuesday, Oct. 9.

Footballguys view: The Bengals just picked up Rawls a few weeks ago. Even with Gio Bernard banged up, the team can lean on Joe Mixon as the starter and rookie Mark Walton as his primary backup. Rawls has been with two teams since training camp and may not have that many teams interested in his services now that he's back on the open market.

  Bengals | C.J. Uzomah finishes with 43 yards    Sun Oct 7, 05:55 PM

Cincinnati Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah caught two passes for 43 yards against the Miami Dolphins in Week 5.

Footballguys view: Tyler Kroft got banged up in this one and Uzomah clearly provides a downfield element that Kroft lacks, so Uzomah is the pick to stream against one of the league's worst defenses next week when Pittsburgh comes to town.

C.J. Uzomah player page


  Bengals | Four catches for Tyler Boyd    Sun Oct 7, 05:51 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd caught four passes for 44 yards against the Miami Dolphins in Week 5.

Footballguys view: Boyd's hot streak came to a halt despite having a great matchup against the lesser Dolphins corners this week. He's got a good matchup against Pittsburgh next week and probably deserves another WR3/Flex look in Week 6.

  Bengals | Joe Mixon rushes for 93 yards    Sun Oct 7, 05:46 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon rushed for 93 yards on 22 carries against the Miami Dolphins in Week 5. He also caught three passes for 22 yards and one touchdown during the game.

Footballguys view: Mixon started slow and finished strong as there was little concern about the size of his workload despite buzz to the contrary before the game. He'll be a strong RB1 against the Steelers next week.

  Bengals | Andy Dalton throws for 248 yards    Sun Oct 7, 05:37 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton went 20-for-30 for 248 yards, one touchdown and one interception against the Miami Dolphins in Week 5.

Footballguys view: Dalton was one of a host of quarterbacks to underachieve in Week 5 after setting very expectations in September. The defense carried the Bengals to the victory and will be needed to come up big against the Steelers next week. Dalton is still a solid QB1 despite the quiet week against an undermanned unit.

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Kroft (foot) suffered a right foot injury during the Week 5 game and is considered questionable to return.

The Cincinnati Bengals have declared OT Cedric Ogbuehi, RB Giovani Bernard, LB Malik Jefferson, WR Auden Tate, C Billy Price, WR John Ross and DL Josh Tupou inactive for Week 5.

  Bengals | Snap count for Joe Mixon?    Sat Oct 6, 09:34 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (knee) will have some limits to his workload against the Miami Dolphins in Week 5 because his conditioning has suffered a bit following knee surgery, head coach Marvin Lewis said.

Footballguys view: Mixon should still get 12-18 touches in any event, which should make him a solid RB2 choice today against a reeling Miami defense.

  Bengals | Cincy to lean on Mark Walton    Sat Oct 6, 09:21 PM

  Bengals | Tyler Eifert lands on IR    Fri Oct 5, 02:12 PM

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Friday, Oct. 5.

Footballguys view: Eifert suffered a season-ending ankle injury in Week 4. It's bad news for him and the Bengals passing game because we all know Eifert can be an impact player when healthy. Having played 10 games over the last two seasons, Eifert hits free agency in 2019 with major injury questions having never played a full 16-game season. The Bengals turn to Tyler Kroft and C.J. Uzomah.

  Bengals | Joe Mixon not on Week 5 injury report    Fri Oct 5, 01:56 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (knee) practiced fully Friday, Oct. 5, and will not appear on the team's Week 5 injury report.

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (knee) has been diagnosed with an MCL sprain and is expected to be out two to four weeks, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.

Footballguys view: Joe Mixon is back for the Bengals this week and set for a RB1 workload. Behind Mixon, the Bengals have rookie Mark Walton (a favorite of ours in deep dynasty leagues) and Thomas Rawls.

DE Michael Johnson (knee) and DE Carl Lawson (ankle) were limited during practice. OG Alex Redmond (shoulder) and LB Preston Brown (shoulder) fully participated in practice.

Footballguys view: Ross is looking like a no go on Sunday without a turnaround. Josh Malone could get an extended audition on the outside in a good matchup if Ross is out.
