Latest News

Bengals | Questionable tag for Giovani Bernard (Fri Nov 27, 04:46 PM) - Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (concussion) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 27, but is listed as questionable for Week 12.

Our View: That makes two practices for Bernard this week, and practicing fully on Friday shows that he's on the probable side of questionable. With Brandon Allen at quarterback, Bernard is a RB2/flex play for Fantasy GMs in Week 12.

Bengals | Cincinnati's injury report for Week 12 (Fri Nov 27, 04:04 PM) - Cincinnati Bengals WR Mike Thomas (hamstring) did not practice Friday, Nov. 27, and is listed as doubtful for Week 12 against the New York Giants. RB Giovani Bernard (concussion), CB Mackensie Alexander (hamstring) and LB Markus Bailey (hamstring) practiced in full Friday and are listed as questionable. DT Geno Atkins (rest), DT Mike Daniels (rest), WR A.J. Green (rest) and LB Logan Wilson (neck) also practiced in full Friday and have been removed from the injury report.

Our View: Zac Taylor said he felt good about Bernard's chances to play, but he's still a weak RB2/Flex play with Brandon Allen starting for the Bengals at quarterback. A.J. Green will play a bigger role with Thomas likely out and Auden Tate on the covid list.

Bengals | Giovani Bernard upgraded (Thu Nov 26, 05:31 PM) - Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (concussion) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 26.

Our View: Bernard's concussion came up mid-week. The Bengals would have to turn to guys like Samaje Perine and Trayveon Williams if Bernard can't play in Week 12. We'll see if there are any setbacks for the veteran back after practicing in a limited fashion on Thursday.

DT Geno Atkins (rest), DT Mike Daniels (rest), WR A.J. Green (rest), LB Markus Bailey (hamstring) and LB Logan Wilson (neck) practiced in full.

Bengals | Giovani Bernard does not practice (Wed Nov 25, 05:22 PM) - Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (concussion) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 25.

Our View: This is a new issue for Bernard. Fantasy GMs need to have other options ready. The Bengals are already starting Brandon Allen at quarterback, and now they may have to use Samaje Perine and Trayveon Williams more at the running back position.
