Giovani Bernard - RBPosted 10/24/14 2:48pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (ribs) practiced in full Friday, Oct. 24, and is probable for Week 8 against the Baltimore Ravens.
Huddle Up: Bernard will go and will need to be more of a factor after gaining a season-low 16 total yards on 9 touches in last week's shutout loss in Indy.
A.J. Green - WRPosted 10/24/14 2:48pm ET
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. He is officially listed as doubtful.
Huddle Up: There was optimism earlier in the week, but barring a surprising announcement Sunday morning, it looks as if Cincy's No. 1 wideout will miss a third straight game.
A.J. Green - WRPosted 10/23/14 6:43pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) sat out of practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 23.
Huddle Up: Just the daily update on Green who is hoping to return after a 2-game absence. It's looking rather iffy at the moment, but see what the prognosis is coming out of Friday's workout.
A.J. Green - WRPosted 10/22/14 6:23pm ET
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, and I guess we'll cross that bridge when the time comes."
Huddle Up: A few days ago, Green sounded determined to return this week after a 2-game absence but his nagging foot issue might have other ideas. His Week 8 status is very much still to be decided by his progress -- or lack of it -- the next few days.
A.J. Green - WRPosted 10/21/14 12:47am ET
Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) said he will play Sunday, Oct. 26, against the Baltimore Ravens, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen.
Huddle Up: Welcome news for the fantasy GMs who have been without Green over the last 2 games. Double that considering the opponent as Green has caught 18 passes for 343 yards and 3 TDs in his last 3 games against the Ravens, including a 6-131-1 showing in last month's season opener.
Rey Maualuga - LBPosted 10/20/14 8:13pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals LB Rey Maualuga (hamstring) is expected to miss a few weeks because of his hamstring injury.
Huddle Up: The Bengals' D has struggled of late, allowing 107 points over the last 3 games and playing without their starting MLB isn't going to help.
A.J. Green - WRPosted 10/17/14 3:45pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) has no timetable for his return to action, according to head coach Marvin Lewis. Green will miss his second straight start in Week 7 against the Indianapolis Colts. He has been around the team all week but hasn't participated in any practices. Green has 17 catches for 314 yards and two touchdowns this year.
Huddle Up: Meanwhile, the WR2 opportunities continue for Mohamed Sanu, who has caught a combined 15 passes for 190 yards and 2 TDs the last 2 games and has had a scoring grab in 3 of Cincy's last 4 contests.
A.J. Green - WRPosted 10/16/14 2:16pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 16.
Huddle Up: Sorry, Green owners, no change in fortune here as the WR still is expected to sit out a second straight game. Meanwhile, Mohamed Sanu maintains his value as a low-end WR2/flex option.
A.J. Green - WRPosted 10/15/14 3:44pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) is not present during practice Wednesday, Oct. 15.
Huddle Up: The door isn't completely closed yet, but most all signs are pointing toward another week of street clothes for Green.
Marvin Jones - WRPosted 10/14/14 3:59pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals WR Marvin Jones (ankle) was placed on the season-ending injured-reserve list Tuesday, Oct. 14. Jones hasn't played this year and only took part in five practices since training camp. The belief is that Jones broke his other foot trying to overcompensate for his right-ankle injury. Surgery is being discussed as a possibility.
Huddle Up: There will be no payoff for those fantasy owners who had stashed Jones coming off his 51-catch, 10-TD season a year ago. Free-agent Greg Little was signed Tuesday as his replacement.
Marvin Jones - WRPosted 10/13/14 10:35am ET
Cincinnati Bengals WR Marvin Jones (ankle) was inactive again in Week 6 against the Carolina Panthers, and there is no timetable on when he will be able to return. There is also some discussion the team might think about surgery for Jones.
Huddle Up: Jones was close to returning following the Bengals' bye week, but after aggravating the injury in practice his return no longer seems imminent. Mohamed Sanu has been more than solid in place of Jones and remains a quality fantasy option, especially with AJ Green also nursing an injury.
A.J. Green - WRPosted 10/13/14 10:35am ET
Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) is expected to miss a second consecutive game in Week 7, but he is not expected to require surgery. Green is scheduled to see a doctor Friday, Oct. 17.
Huddle Up: Green's fantasy owners should continue to implement whatever Plan B they've been using in his absence, but the news that he won't need surgery suggests a return this season--hopefully at a level at or near where he was producing prior to suffering the injury.
A.J. Green - WRPosted 10/13/14 12:46pm ET
Updating previous reports, Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) will not play in Week 7 due to his toe injury.
Huddle Up: As expected, Green won't play this week. Mohamed Sanu will once again be a target monster against the Colts.
Marvin Jones - WRPosted 10/13/14 10:51pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals WR Marvin Jones (ankle) is not seeing any progress from his injury, according to head coach Marvin Lewis.
Huddle Up: There is talk that Jones may need to undergo surgery for the unspecified ankle injury suffered in practice 2 weeks ago, and that could put the remainder of his season at risk. Jones, who had 10 TD catches among his 51 catches last season, had missed the Bengals' first 3 games due to a foot fracture.
A.J. Green - WRPosted 10/11/14 12:43am ET
Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) will not play in the Week 6 game against the Carolina Panthers, a source said Friday, Oct. 10. Green was wearing a walking boot on his right foot during a morning walkthrough Friday. Officially, he is listed as questionable.
Huddle Up: Green owners will have to go with another option, while Mohamed Sanu will be the Bengals No. 1 receiver this week against Carolina. Sanu will be a WR3/4 this week with Green out.
A.J. Green - WRPosted 10/10/14 4:13pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) will not play in Week 6 against the Carolina Panthers, according to sources. Green had his right foot in a walking boot Friday, Oct. 10, during the team's walkthrough. Head coach Marvin Lewis said Green's injury was 'a little more than' turf toe Thursday. Green, however, will not need surgery.
Huddle Up: As fully expected, Green will sit Sunday. Marvin Jones (ankle) also will be out, leaving Mohamed Sanu, Brandon Tate and Dane Sanzenbacher atop the WR depth chart. That likely means for more emphasis on the ground game for Cincy, and lowered fantasy expectations for QB Andy Dalton.
Giovani Bernard - RBPosted 10/9/14 8:58am ET
Cincinnati Bengals RBs Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill might be asked to do more in Week 6 against the Carolina Panthers if WR A.J. Green (toe) is unable to play. 'Never out of weapons,' offensive coordinator Hue Jackson said Wednesday, Oct. 8. 'We'll put somebody else up in there and let's go.'
Huddle Up: Jackson certainly isn't against a run-heavy attack, and if Green is out the Bengals will be thin at wideout so more running makes sense. It's already a favorable fantasy matchup for both Bernard and Hill; an increased workload would make them that much more valuable.
A.J. Green - WRPosted 10/9/14 8:58am ET
Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) could potentially miss multiple games after aggravating his big toe injury in practice Wednesday, Oct. 8. Green had an MRI Wednesday, and he will meet with a foot specialist Thursday, Oct. 9.
Huddle Up: The Bengals just had their bye so there isn't a built-in opportunity for Green to rest his toe. He'd been playing through the injury, but now the team needs to determine if shutting him down for a couple weeks will help down the road.
A.J. Green - WRPosted 10/8/14 2:02pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) left practice early Wednesday, Oct. 8, after apparently aggravating his toe injury during warmups.
Huddle Up: Uh oh -- definitely something to monitor with the WR having been hampered by the issue and essentially missing the Week 2 win over the Falcons last month. He's played in all 3 games since and has had a bye week, but he might not be out of the woods yet.
Marvin Jones - WRPosted 10/8/14 3:25pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals WR Marvin Jones (ankle) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Oct. 8.
Huddle Up: Jones was set to return last week but injured his ankle in an early-week practice and didn't play Sunday night in New England. See if he's able to get on the field the next couple of days. Meanwhile, with A.J. Green aggravating a foot issue Wednesday, the Cincy WR corps could be down to the likes of Mohamed Sanu, Dane Sanzenbacher and Brandon Tate on Sunday.
Marvin Jones - WRPosted 10/3/14 12:08am ET
Cincinnati Bengals WR Marvin Jones (ankle) missed practice Thursday, Oct. 2. He is dealing with an ankle injury that he suffered in Monday's practice.
Huddle Up: It's looking like Jones' 2014 debut might be postponed another week after the WR missed his second straight practice. See if he can get on field Friday.
Marvin Jones - WRPosted 10/1/14 6:01pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals WR Marvin Jones is not participating in practice Wednesday, Oct. 1, because of a possible ankle injury. The injury does not appear to be related to his broken foot.
Huddle Up: Possible worrisome news for those fantasy GMs banking on the WR's return this week. See if he's able to get on the field and do something over the next few days.
Marvin Jones - WRPosted 9/30/14 12:34am ET
Cincinnati Bengals WR Marvin Jones (foot) is expected to return in Week 5, and offensive coordinator Hue Jackson said he 'can't wait' to use Jones in the offense.
Huddle Up: Mohamed Sanu has been productive as Cincy's No. 2 WR opposite A.J. Green, but definitely look for Jones to take over that role coming off his 51-712-10 season in 2013. He's definitely needs to be picked up if he's available on your league's waiver wire.
Marvin Jones - WRPosted 9/22/14 10:41am ET
Cincinnati Bengals WR Marvin Jones (foot) is expected to be healthy enough to return in Week 5 after the team's bye.
Huddle Up: You may remember Jones from his 10 touchdowns a year ago. He'll have to battle Mohamed Sanu for wingman duties opposite AJ Green, so don't expect an immediate fantasy impact. But with the Cincy offense rolling, there is certainly upside to Jones going forward.
A.J. Green - WRPosted 9/19/14 2:06pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (foot) said he feels good Friday, Sept. 19, and is ready to play in Week 3.
Huddle Up: An in-game re-aggravation is certainly at risk again here, but as one of fantasy's top WRs, Green's clearly a must-start if he's playing.
Giovani Bernard - RBPosted 9/18/14 10:02am ET
Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard is on pace for 328 carries, while rookie RB Jeremy Hill is ticketed for 152 for a total of 480. That would be the most by two Bengals backs in a single season, shattering the previous record of 405, set in 2000. Offensive coordinator Hue Jackson isn't estimating how many carries each will get on a given day, and said Wednesday, Sept. 17, that is varies from series to series. He calls plays on the sidelines rather than up in the booth so he can sense the ebb and flow of the game. 'It's the way things unfold. But Gio is the starting tailback on this football team. So at the end of the day, he's going to get some chances that maybe everybody else doesn't get until he proves he can't or the other guy proves that he's better,' Jackson said.
Huddle Up: No surprises here, not even Jackson's backfield tandem being on pace to set records for usage. You knew Hue wanted to run the ball, you knew Gio would be the lead guy, and you hoped Hill would prove up to handling his share of the load; thus far all have proven true.
A.J. Green - WRPosted 9/18/14 3:52pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (foot) is likely to play in Week 3, according to head coach Marvin Lewis.
Huddle Up: The stud wideout reportedly returned to practice Thursday, and it's sounding like he might try and give it a go Sunday against the Titans. However, that's a mixed bag for fantasy owners as there's the risk the WR could always re-aggravate the injury and depart at any time -- a la Week 2 -- and leave his owners short in the fantasy points department.
Vontaze Burfict - LBPosted 9/17/14 6:09pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict was diagnosed with a concussion Wednesday, Sept. 17, and did not participate in practice.
Huddle Up: This is really a lingering issue from Week 1, and even though the LB was able to play last Sunday, he's likely going to have sit out Week 3 to shake the symptoms. It even makes more sense considering Cincy has a bye in Week 4.
A.J. Green - WRPosted 9/17/14 6:20pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) sat out practice Wednesday, Sept. 17, but will try to practice Thursday, Sept. 18. He said he hopes to be able to play Week 3. He said his injury is like turf toe but not as bad. He is not worried about the injury lingering.
Huddle Up: Green's fantasy owners are certainly banking on the WR being right as the injury from last week did flare up early in the game last Sunday and resulted in a zero in the fantasy-points column. Definitely monitor how things go Thursday and Friday.
A.J. Green - WRPosted 9/15/14 8:53pm ET
Updating previous reports, Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (foot) underwent an MRI on his injury, which came back negative. If he is not able to play Week 3, he should be ready after the team's Week 4 bye.
Huddle Up: Reason says the looming bye likely will lead to the Bengals giving the standout WR an extra week of rest and recovery, but see what the tone coming out of Cincy is during the week.
