  Bengals | Giovani Bernard could sit Sunday    Wed Oct 29, 11:54 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (hip, shoulder) has a hip pointer and clavicle which is bothering him and he could miss the Week 9 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to beat writer Richard Skinner. The team has a quick turnaround with a game Thursday, Nov. 6, in Week 10.

  Bengals | A.J. Green a limited participant    Wed Oct 29, 07:16 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) returned to practice on a limited basis Wednesday, Oct. 29. Green said he feels good, and he'll try to do more Thursday, Oct. 30. It looks more promising that he'll play in Week 9 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, and if he does, he's unlikely to limit his number of snaps. Green did position-specific drills Wednesday and ran some routes, and he didn't favor his right big toe. However, he has been told to expect to play through some level of pain for the rest of the season.

Footballguys view: Green said trainers may tape up his foot a bit, but he isn't planning on wearing different shoes or wearing inserts for cushioning. Fantasy owners need to monitor this situation closely as the week of practice continues.

  Bengals | Vontaze Burfict injury update    Wed Oct 29, 01:38 PM

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict (knee) underwent surgery Wednesday, Oct. 29, to remove a piece of cartilage that would have done more damage to his knee if not treated.

Footballguys view: The Bengals got back on the winning track last week, but now they'll go forward without Burfict for a little bit. Burfict likely will miss at least the team's next two games.

  Bengals | A.J. Green practicing    Wed Oct 29, 01:34 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) is participating in practice Wednesday, Oct. 29.

Footballguys view: Green says he's 80 percent healthy this week after feeling 40 percent healthy last week. That's a good sign, but we're not going to buy his self-prognosis before he practices fully in back-to-back days.

  Bengals | Giovani Bernard not practicing    Wed Oct 29, 01:22 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (hip) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Oct. 29.

Footballguys view: We could see a bit more of rookie Jeremy Hill against the Jaguars in Week 9. In what should be an easy win, the Bengals would be wise to ease up on Bernard's workload as he's been banged up over the last two games.

  Bengals | A.J. Green will try to practice    Wed Oct 29, 12:14 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) said he will try to participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 29.

Footballguys view: He says he's 80 percent healthy, but we turn to Dr. Jene Bramel for direction in this situation. According to the good doctor, we have no idea how healthy Green truly is. We'll see if he can practice later in the week.

Cincinnati Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict (knee), who has left all five games that he's played in this year, left the Week 8 game with a knee injury, but he returned in the second quarter and played the remainder of the contest.

  Bengals | Greg Little fitting in fast    Mon Oct 27, 08:43 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Greg Little was targeted five times in Week 8 in his second start since signing with the team, and head coach Marvin Lewis said he feels Little 'has the ability to make plays' for the offense.

Footballguys view: Little has good run-after-the-catch ability...it's the catching part that has been difficult for him throughout his NFL career. We'll see if he can continue to impress with the Bengals. His target count will drop when A.J. Green (toe) returns to the lineup.

  Bengals | Giovani Bernard injured hip    Sun Oct 26, 03:31 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (hip) suffered a right hip injury in Week 8 and is considered questionable to return.

Footballguys view: Bernard has been getting dinged too frequently for his owners to feel comfortable carrying him without Jeremy Hill on the bench. His owners need to keep their fingers crossed that he is ready for the matchup at Jacksonville next week.

  Bengals | Mohamed Sanu makes big catch    Sun Oct 26, 01:10 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Mohamed Sanu caught a 48-yard pass in the first quarter of the team's Week 8 game.

Footballguys view: Sanu had a nice long catch and run as the Bengals offense showed more signs of life in this drive (including a Greg Little sighting) than they did at any point against the Colts last week.

  Bengals | A.J. Green out today    Sun Oct 26, 09:19 AM

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) is out for the Week 8 game Sunday, Oct. 26. He hopes to return next week.

Footballguys view: Green is "70-30" for next week according to NFL Network's Stacey Dales, and he will get a special shoe from Nike this week. The Bengals offense needs him about as bad as any team in the league needs a player right now.

  Bengals | A.J. Green unlikely to play    Sat Oct 25, 11:56 AM

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) is not expected to play in Week 8, because he has ligament damage under his toe.

Footballguys view: Most of us expected this....and we think it's a good thing to make sure Green is as close to 100 percent as possible before his return. The team wants to be careful with him since the injury has lingered. That makes Mohammed Sanu a WR2 this week against the Ravens.

  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 could 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.

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.
