  Bengals | Vontaze Burfict unlikely to play    Thu Sep 18, 07:40 PM

Cincinnati Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict (concussion) looks unlikely to play in Week 3 against the Tennessee Titans after leaving each of the first two games of the year with concussions. He appears to be in the early stages of the concussion protocol, which would leave him unavailable for Sunday's game.

  Bengals | A.J. Green returns to practice    Thu Sep 18, 04:04 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) was back at practice Thursday, Sept. 18, and he hasn't ruled out the possibility of playing in Week 3 against the Tennessee Titans. 'If it's feeling good, then I'm going to go,' Green said. 'If it's not, then we'll go from there.' Green lined up out wide and ran at a good pace during practice. He felt the injury all of last week during practice, and he wasn't able to get full extension when he ran in Week 2. Head coach Marvin Lewis expects Green to play against the Titans. If he doesn't play, WR Mohamed Sanu will replace him as the No. 1 receiver.

Footballguys view: We still don't know for sure what will happen--turf toe could keep him out suddenly on Sunday--but this is encouraging. Given that even if he plays the toe could hamper him, we have Green as a borderline WR1, not the sure fire guy we're used to.

  Bengals | Giovani Bernard-Jeremy Hill tandem impressing    Thu Sep 18, 02:11 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RBs Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill have formed an impressive backfield tandem under offensive coordinator Hue Jackson so far after two games. Bernard is on pace for 328 carries and Hill is on pace for 152. Bernard and Hill combined for 164 yards on 42 carries in the Week 2 win over the Atlanta Falcons. "Both guys are showing they can not only run it, but they also have the ability to catch it and they not only can catch it, but they can make runs after the catch. Their creativity is a key factor in what's been going on. When you have weapons where anytime a guy can get the ball and they can take it to the house, it makes you feel good,' former running backs coach Jim Anderson said.

Footballguys view: Bernard looks poised for very good RB1 numbers this week, while Hill could fill in as a RB3/Flex option against the Tennessee Titans. This could be one of the better producing RBBC's we've seen in a long time.

  Bengals | A.J. Green likely to play    Thu Sep 18, 09:45 AM

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (foot) is likely to play in Week 3, according to head coach Marvin Lewis.

Footballguys view: Great news for fantasy owners....oh and the Bengals of course. Green is currently rated as our No. 9 WR for the week but make sure you temper your expectations. Dalton will still force the ball to Green--how can you not?--and ultimately half a Green is still better than most receivers. But he's not going to get back to that Week 1 131 yard total this week.

  Bengals | Giovani Bernard leads explosive duo    Wed Sep 17, 11:07 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard is on pace for 328 carries, while rookie RB Jeremy Hill is ticketed for 152 for a total of 480. That would be the most by two Bengals backs in a single season, shattering the previous record of 405, set in 2000. Offensive coordinator Hue Jackson isn't estimating how many carries each will get on a given day, and said Wednesday, Sept. 17, that is varies from series to series. He calls plays on the sidelines rather than up in the booth so he can sense the ebb and flow of the game. 'It's the way things unfold. But Gio is the starting tailback on this football team. So at the end of the day, he's going to get some chances that maybe everybody else doesn't get until he proves he can't or the other guy proves that he's better,' Jackson said.

  Bengals | Jeremy Hill finding stride    Wed Sep 17, 11:05 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill is on pace for a total of 152 carries, while RB Giovani Bernard is on pace for 328 carries. The most runs in franchise history by two backs is 405, set in 2000. Offensive coordinator Hue Jackson isn't outing any particular numbers out there for carries, and said it goes from series to series who will see the ball. He said that is why he calls plays from the sidelines, so he can sense the ebb and flow of the game.

  Bengals | Andy Dalton staying upright    Mon Sep 15, 06:42 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton has not been hit once on 63 dropbacks so far this season.

Footballguys view: Dalton has worked well in the new Hue Jackson offense. He may not finish the season as a top-3 fantasy quarterback like he did in 2013, but Dalton could finish the season as a low-end QB1.

  Bengals | A.J. Green's injury minor    Mon Sep 15, 04:21 PM

Updating previous reports, Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (foot) underwent an MRI on his injury, which came back negative.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners can breathe a sigh of relief here. If he is not able to play Week 3, he should be ready after the team's Week 4 bye. If Green is out in Week 3, then we'll see an increased opportunity for Mohammed Sanu.

  Bengals | A.J. Green has foot strain    Mon Sep 15, 10:56 AM

Updating earlier reports, Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (foot) has a strained ligament in his foot, as opposed to the original diagnosis of turf toe. It's unclear whether it's an aggravation of the injury that caused him to miss practice Thursday, Sept. 11, or if it's a new injury.

  Bengals | A.J. Green could miss time    Mon Sep 15, 09:57 AM

Updating previous reports, Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) doesn't have a significant injury and would likely return for Week 5 after the bye week if he's unable to play in Week 3. The injury was related to the injury that forced him to miss practice Thursday, Sept. 11.

Footballguys view: The Bengals need to be cautious here. Their passing game is already without Marvin Jones, so if Green misses any time then Mohammed Sanu will get a more prominent role in the offense.

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) suffered a turf toe injury in the Week 2 game against the Atlanta Falcons, a league source said Sunday, Sept. 14. He left early and was unable to return. It is uncertain how much time he will miss.

Footballguys view: This has since been updated to a ligament strain. Stay tuned for everything our Dr. Jene Bramel has to say about how this impacts Green's outlook. The values of Andy Dalton, Giovani Bernard, Mohamed Sanu, and Jeremy Hill will all be affected.

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) will not be able to return Week 2 after suffering a toe injury during the game.

Footballguys view: It's not a great sign that Green has been ruled out so early in the game. The Bengals will rely on their running backs to move the offense while Green is out.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (foot) is not taking part in practice Thursday, Sept. 11.

Footballguys view: Green was limited on Wednesday so there is a little concern that he went from that to being held out, but more than likely the team is just being careful with him. We aren't worried and feel Green is a clear-cut WR1 against the Falcons this weekend.

The Cincinnati Bengals have placed TE Tyler Eifert (elbow) on the Active/Reserve/Injured list.

Footballguys view: The Bengals passing game is already without wide receiver Marvin Jones. Eifert was an interesting TE2 option for fantasy owners this year, but now he won't be available until Week 10 against the Saints at the earliest. Jermaine Gresham and Alex Smith take over at tight end, and neither are exciting fantasy options.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill only played 10 offensive snaps in Week 1. RB Giovani Bernard played 57 snaps in the game.
