  Bengals | Tyler Eifert not ready to practice    Fri Oct 24, 06:44 PM

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (elbow) was eligible to practice this week but is not ready to return at this time. Eifert is currently on the Active/Reserve/Injured list.

Footballguys view: Eifert would be a terrific addition to a team without their top two wide receivers right now. When he is ready to play, Eifert should get a very large opportunity in the Bengals' passing game.

  Bengals | Giovani Bernard will play    Fri Oct 24, 02:16 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (ribs) practiced in full Friday, Oct. 24, and is probable for Week 8 against the Baltimore Ravens.

Footballguys view: You can't bench Bernard unless your team is stacked, but the deck is stacked against him with a tough Ravens defense coming to town and no AJ Green in the lineup this weekend.

  Bengals | A.J. Green not practicing    Fri Oct 24, 11:35 AM

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) is not practicing Friday, Oct. 24. It's the third straight day he has missed practice, making it unlikely that he'll be able to play in Week 8.

Footballguys view: Green won't be back to save the Bengals offense this week. Mohamed Sanu is a boom/bust WR3/Flex play and Giovani Bernard could get more targets, but do less with them.

  Bengals | A.J. Green missing from practice    Thu Oct 23, 04:46 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) sat out of practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 23.

Footballguys view: We'll have to watch this. Hopefully he can play as we could see him putting up WR2 numbers in a critical divisional game. But that toe could also hold him back. We'll be watching tomorrow to see if he sits or practices. That will be the telling moment.

  Bengals | Giovani Bernard still limited    Thu Oct 23, 04:43 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (ribs) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 23.

Footballguys view: Right now we have Bernard as an RB2, but if he doesn't go, Jeremy Hill becomes a nice play. Right now, Hill is a RB4, but he could really move up in production if Bernard is out. Keep an eye on this.

  Bengals | Limited practice for Giovani Bernard    Wed Oct 22, 04:37 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (ribs) was listed as limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Footballguys view: Bernard was rocked last week by cornerback Vonta Davis, and that led to this injury. We'll see if he can practice fully later in the week. The Bengals need to get back on track, and Bernard is a mid-range RB2 in Week 8 against the Ravens.

  Bengals | A.J. Green absent at practice    Wed Oct 22, 04:32 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) wasn't feeling good enough to return to practice Wednesday, Oct. 22. Head coach Marvin Lewis said Green won't play in Week 8 against the Baltimore Ravens unless he's 'significantly healed,' but left the door open for Green to play. "It's hard for me to put a guy out there Sunday that I don't think can last a full game," Lewis said. "If we have A.J. for part of the game doing certain things, that would be great. I think we could operate offensively ... I guess we'll cross that bridge when the time comes."

Footballguys view: Green's status for Week 8 is up in the air right now. Watch to see if he can practice later in the week.

  Bengals | A.J. Green's status up in the air    Tue Oct 21, 12:09 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) said his return from a toe injury is 'still up in the air' heading into Week 8 against the Baltimore Ravens. However, Green said he's making nice progress, and his toe feels much better. Green hasn't played since Week 5 against the New England Patriots. 'It's probably not going to be 100 percent,' Green said. 'I hope it's just manageable and I can get through the season and be fine and still play at a high level.'

Footballguys view: The team is going to monitor Green as he works through the week of practice. This situation could go either way, so make sure to check back each day for practice status updates.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) has made significant progress in his rehab from his toe injury, according to head coach Marvin Lewis.

  Bengals | Jermaine Gresham may be available    Sun Oct 19, 12:15 PM

Cincinnati Bengals TE Jermaine Gresham could be available in a trade before the trade deadline.

Footballguys view: Gresham could help a team like the Lions or Seahawks that are having trouble at tight end with injuries, but if the Bengals, who are missing Tyler Eifert, are willing to deal Gresham, you have to wonder how much he could help.

The Cincinnati Bengals signed free-agent WR Greg Little (Raiders) to an undisclosed deal Tuesday, Oct. 14, according to a league source.

Footballguys view: With Marvin Jones going on Injured Reserve, the Bengals needed to make a move here. The fantasy impact of Little signing is non-existent....unless you get points for drops and disappointing performances. Little is elusive after the catch, but it's the catching part that has proven to be difficult for him in the pros.

  Bengals | Marvin Jones seeing specialist    Tue Oct 14, 12:03 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Marvin Jones (ankle) will see a foot specialist to have his right ankle examined Tuesday, Oct. 14, according to a source. Jones will evaluate the injury and weigh his options with respect to what the team should to with his injury-list status.

Footballguys view: We haven't seen Jones at all this season, and he only participated in a total of five practices this year since training camp. There's a good chance that Jones broke his other foot trying to overcompensate for his right ankle injury. Surgery is being discussed as a possibility.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Marvin Jones (ankle) is not seeing any progress from his injury, according to head coach Marvin Lewis.

Updating previous reports, Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) will not play in Week 7 due to his toe injury.

  Bengals | Mohamed Sanu steps up game    Sun Oct 12, 08:26 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Mohamed Sanu posted a career-high 10 receptions for 120 yards and a touchdown in the Week 6 tie against the Carolina Panthers.

Footballguys view: Sanu had one long catch for a score and otherwise kept the sticks moving for a Bengals offense without three of their top four downfield receiving talents. He proved his worth as an WR2 for next week's game with AJ Green sitting again.

  Bengals | Giovani Bernard has big stat line    Sun Oct 12, 08:26 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard carried 18 times for 137 yards in Week 6 against the Carolina Panthers, including a career-long 89-yard rushing touchdown. He also chipped in with four receptions for 20 yards.

Footballguys view: Bernard left the game briefly with a shoulder injury, but returned in overtime. He is an elite fantasy RB1 in this offense despite a lot of carries that go for short gains or less.
