The Cincinnati Bengals cut RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis on Friday, Aug. 29.
Huddle Up: No real shocker as the strong preseason play of second-round pick Jeremy Hill made the veteran expendable.

Cincinnati Bengals RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis is listed as the No. 2 running back on the team's first depth chart. He is listed behind RB Giovani Bernard but in front of RB Jeremy Hill.
Huddle Up: This is likely to change as training camp and preseason moves on. Hill is expected to take over as the Bengals' power back and see his share of goal line carries this season. The rookie has much more upside than the plodding Green-Ellis. Hill currently has an intriguing ADP of late Round 9, while Green-Ellis isn't worth drafting in most formats. It would be a surprise if Hill isn't the Bengals' No. 2 RB when the season starts.

Cincinnati Bengals RBs BenJarvus Green-Ellis and Rex Burkhead could compete for one roster spot if the team keeps four running backs on the final roster. RBs Giovani Bernard, Jeremy Hill and Cedric Peerman appear to be locks for the roster.
Huddle Up: Further indication that the Bengals' backfield will be heavy on Gio with the rookie Hill likely swiping BJGE's between-the-tackles workload.

Cincinnati Bengals RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis' roster spot could be in jeopardy after the team selected RB Jeremy Hill during the draft. The team would save $2.5 million in salary cap space if they release Green-Ellis.
Huddle Up: BJGE's rushing attempts, rushing yards, yard-per-carry and total touches all took sizable dips last season with rookie Giovanni Bernard coming aboard, and now the addition of Hill, the second-round pick out of LSU, could close the door on the Law Firm's 2-year run in Cincy.

Cincinnati Bengals RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis (thumb) admitted he has played with a broken thumb since Week 2.
Huddle Up: BJGE has ceded touches to Giovani Bernard, but it's been because Bernard has been more effective, not necessarily the injury. Doesn't seem like the injury should impact the future sharing of carries; Bernard has earned as much as he can handle, with Green-Ellis being used to keep the rookie fresh.
