Cincinnati Bengals WR Mohamed Sanu (shoulder) missed his second straight day of practice Tuesday, Oct. 29. If he can't play in the team's Week 9 game Thursday, Oct. 31, against the Miami Dolphins, then WR Marvin Jones will replace him in two-receiver sets with WR Dane Sanzenbacher taking some snaps out of the slot position. WR Andrew Hawkins, who's expected to be activated to the active roster before the game, is another option.
Huddle Up: One has to wonder if Jones hasn't already moved ahead of Sanu -- injury or not -- after his recent surge has netted 6 TD receptions over the past 3 games. Hawkins' impending activation only further dilutes the targets.

Cincinnati Bengals LB Michael Boley (hamstring), WR Mohamed Sanu (shoulder) and OT Andrew Whitworth (knee) did not practice Monday, Oct. 28. RB Rex Burkhead (groin) and DE Wallace Gilberry (groin) were each listed as limited participants.
Huddle Up: The shoulder issue aside, Sanu has seen Marvin Jones take over as the team's prime target opposite No. 1 wideout A.J. Green and he only has 2 catches for 36 yards over the past 2 games. That leaves Sanu with fantasy value only in deeper leagues.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Mohamed Sanu (foot) appears to be over a foot injury which required season-ending surgery last November. WR Marvin Jones has also impressed, showing good separation and speed in training camp.
Huddle Up: These two will be vying for the No. 2 role across A.J. Green, which could mean some solid fantasy output during the season. Both flashed last season, so it will be interesting to see who comes out the victor. The Bengals might rotate them in throughout the season, which would nullify their fantasy value, but keep an eye on this battle.

Cincinnati Bengals WRs Mohamed Sanu and Marvin Jones could share the starting wide receiver job opposite WR A.J. Green this season. Sanu or Jones would start depending on what the first play from scrimmage would be.
Huddle Up: Fantasy owners would prefer that one of the two step up as a reliable WR2 for the Bengals--and subsequently become a decent fantasy play as well. Until then it's a guessing game as to which--if either--becomes a fantasy contributor opposite Green.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Mohamed Sanu could serve as the emergency No. 3 quarterback again this season if the team decides to keep two quarterbacks on their final roster.
Huddle Up: Seriously, would throwing Sanu under center be any worse than John Skelton, currently the Bengals' QB3 option? You could maybe give Sanu a teensy fantasy value bonus for a touchdown pass or an occasional wildcat snap at the stripe; other than that, this news barely moves the fantasy needle.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Mohamed Sanu confirms he's 100 percent and has no nagging pain.
Huddle Up: Sanu suffered a foot injury late in 2012, just as he was emerging as a legitimate WR2 opposite A.J. Green. If healthy, Sanu has to be viewed as a definite sleeper candidate.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Mohamed Sanu (foot) is running routes after getting cleared early in February. 'It's great. It feels good. I've been working out and running,' Sanu said this week during an interview about his experience at least year's NFL Scouting Combine. 'I've been running routes for a while and it feels good.' Sanu missed the last six games of 2012 with a stress fracture in his foot.
Huddle Up: Sanu was just coming on before sustaining his foot fracture in practice prior to Week 13, having caught a combined 4 TD passes in what turned out to be his final 3 games of the season. The Bengals are counting on the second-year player in 2013 as they need a threat opposite Pro Bowler A.J. Green.
