Latest NewsBengals | 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.

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.

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.
