  Bengals | Tyler Eifert progressing from injury     Thu Jan 29, 07:37 PM

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (elbow, shoulder) is progressing, according to head coach Marvin Lewis.

Footballguys view: The Bengals will take it easy on the young tight end as he comes back from both of these injuries. Eifert recently said he didn't think he'd be 100% by the time minicamp starts.

  Bengals | Marvin Jones progressing    Thu Jan 29, 07:31 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Marvin Jones (ankle) is progressing well, according to head coach Marvin Lewis. Jones is recovering from a broken foot he suffered last season.

Footballguys view: An important note for dynasty owners here. The Bengals offense is all about running the ball with OC Hue Jackson, but Jones will help things open up in the passing game.

  Bengals | Jermaine Gresham in Cincy's plans?    Wed Jan 28, 04:58 PM

Cincinnati Bengals TE Jermaine Gresham, a soon-to-be free agent, still has a place within the offense, according to offensive coordinator Hue Jackson. 'We have a way that we do things, and how we want to accomplish things,' Jackson said. 'Within what we asked him to do this year, he did some good things. There are some things he knows he needs to do to be better, and he will work at them to be better.'

Footballguys view: The Bengals won't go out of their way to bring Gresham back. However, if the price is right they'll make sure to extend a decent offer. If he returns, Gresham will once again be splitting time with Tyler Eifert.

  Bengals | Andy Dalton still supported by OC    Tue Jan 27, 07:58 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton still has offensive coordinator Hue Jackson in his corner, despite Dalton's lackluster performance in 2014 and in the Pro Bowl.

Footballguys view: The Pro Bowl performance doesn't matter...but it certainly doesn't help his case. Dalton is one of those quarterbacks who is "just" good enough. He'll get you to the postseason, but he'll struggle once there. Rinse, repeat and you have the Bengals in a nutshell over the last four years. We're not expecting drastic changes in 2015.

  Bengals | Vontaze Burfict had microfracture surgery    Mon Jan 26, 12:15 PM

Cincinnati Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict (knee) is recovering from microfracture surgery on his left knee, and the surgeon who operated on him is hoping that he will be at full strength in time for training camp. 'I don't see any reason, if this thing heals like we want and we think it will, why he won't be back like he was,' Dr. Neal ElAttrache said. 'Microfracture has a bad connotation, but there are plenty of guys who have come back and been able to play like before. But it's not really news when it works out.' Burfict is expected to heal rapidly since his knee was in good shape structurally.

Footballguys view: Knee injuries aren't a big deal anymore, but microfracture surgery always comes with added concerns. Burfict will be brought along slowly as he deals with this more serious surgery. He'll be on crutches for six weeks before he can start conditioning his knee, and he'll be able to run after three months.

  Bengals | Cincy plans on healthy Vontaze Burfict    Wed Jan 21, 09:00 PM

Cincinnati Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict (knee) has had knee surgery, head coach Marvin Lewis confirmed Wednesday, Jan. 21. While there has been concern Burfict might have to begin the 2015 season on the physically-unable-to-perform (PUP) list and miss the first six weeks, Lewis said the plan is he'll be back for the season.

  Bengals | Marvin Lewis happy with Andy Dalton    Wed Jan 21, 08:59 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton has the support of his head coach Marvin Lewis. The head coach said Wednesday, Jan. 21, that he is happy with Dalton, and the club has no plans to bring in a backup quarterback to push Dalton. 'Fortunately, somehow I've got the right little thing on my shoulder that says, 'Don't get into a quarterback controversy',' Lewis said. 'That's worked for (QB Jon Kitna) to (QB Carson Palmer) to Andy. It's helped us have the success we've had and those guys have been good players, productive players. Even when they've left out of here they've been productive. It works.'

Footballguys view: Dalton can get you to the playoffs, but he doesn't win in the postseason. In order to take the next step, Dalton needs to get this problem fixed. Lewis is happy, but he knows Dalton must get better if the Bengals get back to the playoffs in 2015.

  Bengals | Cincinnati not parting with Vance Joseph    Tue Jan 20, 11:13 PM

Cincinnati Bengals defensive backs coach Vance Joseph will not be let out of his contract to pursue defensive coordinator positions. He was linked to the Denver Broncos defensive coordinator opening.

Footballguys view: Joseph was getting some interest from around the NFL, but it looks like the Bengals won't let him out of his deal.

  Bengals | Andy Dalton won't have competition    Thu Jan 15, 02:33 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton is not expected to enter next season with competition at quarterback, as the Bengals are not expected to draft another quarterback this year. "He's our guy and we're not going to shy away from that," says offensive coordinator Hue Jackson of Dalton and quarterbacks coach Ken Zampese offers, "He was better with the intangibles this year and the ball was better coming out of his hand. You could see that right away when he came back from the last offseason." Jackson is a fan of backup QB Jason Campbell, and the team was impressed with young QB A.J. McCarron.

Footballguys view: Nobody should be surprised here. The Bengals don't make changes quickly, so don't expect them to pull the rip cord on Dalton very soon. He's getting them to the playoffs, so they'll be content with that for a little longer and hope he learns not to implode in the postseason. He wasn't great this year in postseason play, but he wasn't the reason they lost (well, not all of it) either.

  Bengals | Darqueze Dennard shows improvement    Wed Jan 7, 12:27 AM

Cincinnati Bengals CB Darqueze Dennard practiced well at the end of the year and showed improvement down the stretch, so he is expected to see more significant snaps going forward. He is likely to help in the nickel package as a slot corner or on the outside.

  Bengals | Vontaze Burfict expected to be ready for camp    Mon Jan 5, 06:42 PM

Cincinnati Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict (knee) is expected to be ready for training camp next season, according to defensive coordinator Paul Guenther.

Footballguys view: Burfict is still considering whether he will undergo surgery on his knee. He needs to decide soon so he can begin the recovery process. If Burfict is ready by the start of camp, the Bengals would be wise to ease him back into the lineup with an eye on him starting the regular-season opener in 2015.

  Bengals | Marvin Lewis happy with Andy Dalton    Mon Jan 5, 05:27 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton showed improvement this season and is expected to become a better quarterback next season, according to head coach Marvin Lewis. Lewis said he is glad that Dalton is on the team.

Footballguys view: Dalton's numbers took a massive dip this year as the team used a more run-heavy approach. We've seen Dalton be a good to very good regular season quarterback, but with the loss against the Colts on Sunday he's now 0-4 in his postseason career.

  Bengals | Sign several players to Reserve/Futures deals    Mon Jan 5, 04:22 PM

The Cincinnati Bengals signed LB L.J. Fort, OT Dan France, DT Kwame Geathers, CB Onterio McCalebb, TE Jake Murphy and WRs Tevin Reese and Eric Ward to Reserve/Futures contracts Monday, Jan. 5.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners in super super deep dynasty leagues should be looking at Reese. The former Baylor wide receiver was a seventh-round pick by the San Diego Chargers in the 2015 NFL draft. He was incredibly productive in college, and Reese has incredible straight-line speed.

  Bengals | Tyler Eifert should be ready for camp    Mon Jan 5, 02:47 PM

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (elbow, shoulder) said he expects to be ready for the start of training camp.

Footballguys view: The Bengals are likely to be cautious with Eifert as he returns from this injury. We should see him eased in at the start of training camp. We'll know more as the summer camps get closer.

  Bengals | Jeremy Hill injured ankle    Mon Jan 5, 12:16 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill (ankle) injured his ankle in the team's wild-card playoff loss to the Indianapolis Colts Sunday, Jan. 4. Hill had 13 carries for 47 yards and a touchdown in the loss.

Footballguys view: There's a reason why Hill was so quiet in the second half against the Colts. The rookie had a fantastic year, and he's certainly going to be in the conversation of first-round running backs for fantasy owners in 2015.

  Bengals | Andy Dalton has struggled in postseason    Sat Jan 3, 09:59 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton has thrown one touchdown and six interceptions in three postseason starts.

Footballguys view: The postseason has not been kind for Dalton. He's 0-3 in three tries so far, and on Sunday he's getting a 4th shot. Against the Colts, we should see the Bengals take the ball out of Dalton's hands so they can feature the ground game. Expect Jeremy Hill and Gio Bernard to handle the ball most of the time for the Bengals--especially since they're playing without WR A.J. Green.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (concussion) is officially out for the wild-card playoff game Sunday, Jan. 4.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (concussion) is listed as doubtful for the team's Wild Card game against the Indianapolis Colts Sunday, Jan. 4, after he sat out of practice Friday, Jan. 2.

Footballguys view: He has to be cleared by an independent physician before he can resume practicing, and that hasn't happened yet. There's a chance Green could be cleared on Saturday, but that would still likely make him limited on Sunday against the Colts.

  Bengals | Eric Ward added to practice squad    Thu Jan 1, 01:07 PM

The Cincinnati Bengals signed free-agent WR Eric Ward (Titans) to their practice squad Thursday, Jan. 1.

Footballguys view: Ward is your prototypical Texas Tech receiver, built in the mold of guys that came before him like Wes Welker and Danny Amendola. He went undrafted in 2014, but the Titans picked him up as a college free agent. Ward failed to make the team, but now he gets a chance to prove himself with the Bengals. If you're in a super super deep dynasty league, then make sure to keep tabs here.
