• A.J. Green - WR
    Posted 12/18/14 5:51pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 18, due to an illness.

    Huddle Up: Sounds like nothing more than a bug, and Green will even have an extra day to get past it with the Bengals not playing until Monday night this week.

  • Jermaine Gresham - TE
    Posted 12/18/14 9:09pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Jermaine Gresham (toe) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 18.

    Huddle Up: A good sign for Monday as Gresham was a full participant in Cincy's first practice of the week after sitting out Week 15.

  • Jermaine Gresham - TE
    Posted 12/16/14 12:48am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Jermaine Gresham (toe) will visit a specialist Tuesday, Dec. 16, for a second opinion on his injured toe, a source told FOX Sports NFL insider Mike Garafolo.

    Huddle Up: Gresham, who had been enjoying a solid late-season run, missed Sunday's win over the Browns, and any time "specialists" and "second opinions" are needed, it almost never turns out for the better. For what it's worth, Ryan Hewitt (3-34) and Kevin Brock (1-2) filled in at TE Sunday and might have to for the remainder of the season.

  • Jeremy Hill - RB
    Posted 12/11/14 4:13pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill will be the starting running back over RB Giovani Bernard for the team's Week 15 game against the Cleveland Browns. The Bengals have used a tandem approach with Hill and Bernard otherwise, with the two backs often alternating series. Bernard's snap counts have been near equal to Hill's in the last three weeks after returning from injury. Offensive coordinator Hue Jackson favors a one-back system. 'I'm used to having one guy kind of dominate some carries because, in order for backs to be really good, they've got to get lathered up to play,' Jackson said. 'You've got to get a feel for the game.'

    Huddle Up: Great news for Hill owners, but on the flip side, it sounds like anything but for the Bernard crowd, and it might be time for the latter group to seriously weigh its other starting options Sunday.

  • Vontaze Burfict - LB
    Posted 12/9/14 4:08pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals CB Vontaze Burfict (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Dec. 9.

    Huddle Up: It was an injury-filled, star-crossed season for the 2013 NFL tackles leader, who played in only five games. His absence has affected the Cincy defense, which has fallen from fifth to 27th in rushing D, allowing 130.3 yards per game.

  • Jeremy Hill - RB
    Posted 12/2/14 12:05am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill criticized the team's game plan against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 13, and offensive coordinator Hue Jackson responded by saying Hill needs to block better and break more tackles.

    Huddle Up: Not the wisest of moves by the rookie, and his fantasy owners can only hopes it doesn't lead to a short-term reduction in PT, especially with fellow back Giovanni Bernard getting healthier.

  • Giovani Bernard - RB
    Posted 11/21/14 11:12am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill will be the leader in a 65-35 split of the carries with RB Giovani Bernard in Week 12, in the opinion of beat writer Paul Dehner Jr.

    Huddle Up: It's just one beat writer's opinion, but it echoes the prevailing sentiment coming out of Cincy: that the current jobshare will look a whole lot like last season, with Hill playing the lead dog role of BenJarvus Green-Ellis and Bernard getting complimentary touches. Could change as Gio gets healthier, but let's worry about this week and go from there.

  • Giovani Bernard - RB
    Posted 11/21/14 3:00pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (hip, clavicle) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 21, and is probable for Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Bernard will be back on the field Sunday for the first time in a month, but don't be too surprised if rookie Jeremy Hill gets the bulk of the work against the Texans.

  • Jeremy Hill - RB
    Posted 11/20/14 10:07am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill is likely to get a bulk of the carries in Week 12 against the Houston Texans, according to beat writer Geoff Hobson, despite the return of RB Giovani Bernard (clavicle, hip). Offensive coordinator Hue Jackson indicated Wednesday, Nov. 19, that Bernard will be eased back into the process.

    Huddle Up: Makes sense for the team to handle Gio with kid gloves, and Hill has certainly demonstrated his ability to successfully handle a larger workload.

  • Giovani Bernard - RB
    Posted 11/20/14 10:07am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (clavicle, hip) will be eased back into the lineup, offensive coordinator Hue Jackson said Wednesday, Nov. 19. 'I think we've got to work him back into our process and how we do things. What will determined that is just how fast and how we think he is ready to go,' Jackson said.

    Huddle Up: The suggestion here is that Gio won't walk back into a full share of carries like he had previous to his injury. Jeremy Hill has handled the job just fine in Gio's absence and will likely be the majority shareholder of Bengals backfield touches for this week and perhaps the next week or two as well while Gio reacclimates to the lineup.

  • Giovani Bernard - RB
    Posted 11/20/14 3:55pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (clavicle, hip) is fully participating in practice Thursday, Nov. 20.

    Huddle Up: Don't look now, but that's now two straight days of workouts for Bernard, who's missed the last three games. Nothing's official yet, but start tinkering with idea of having Bernard available Sunday.

  • Giovani Bernard - RB
    Posted 11/19/14 2:10pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (hip) is participating in practice Wednesday, Nov. 19.

    Huddle Up: It's the best news in a month for Bernard's fantasy owners as the RB has missed the last 3 games. See if the reports remain positive the rest of the week.

  • Giovani Bernard - RB
    Posted 11/17/14 10:07pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (hip) may be able to participate in practice this week, but head coach Marvin Lewis said the team will wait to see if he is able to return to the field.

    Huddle Up: Wait and see is most definitely the operative phrase here as Bernard is trying to avoid his fourth straight missed game.

  • Giovani Bernard - RB
    Posted 11/14/14 2:37pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (hip) is not practicing Friday, Nov. 14 and has been ruled out of the team's Week 11 game in New Orleans.

    Huddle Up: Bernard's status remains status quo with no practice and no positive news to report, and he'll miss a third straight game Sunday, meaning another big workload for rookie Jeremy Hill.

  • Giovani Bernard - RB
    Posted 11/12/14 3:54pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (hip) will not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 12, according to head coach Marvin Lewis.

    Huddle Up: Definitely not good news, especially considering the Bengals have had extra rest since playing on Thursday night in Week 10. See what develops over the remainder of the week.

  • Andy Dalton - QB
    Posted 11/7/14 12:50am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton completed 10-of-33 passes for 86 yards and three interceptions Thursday, Nov. 6 in a 24-3 home loss to the Cleveland Browns.

    Huddle Up: Dalton was simply horrific, compiling the lowest completion percentage (30.3) and passer rating (2.0) and the second-lowest yardage total of his 56 career regular-season starts, and was pulled in favor of Jason Campbell in the fourth quarter. As a result, it was predictably a struggle for WRs A.J. Green (3-23 on 10 targets) and Mohamed Sanu (2-20 on 7 targets) as the Bengals' offense was held without a TD for the second time in four games. Dalton now has 8 TD passes and nine interceptions in 9 games this season, and the restlessness in Cincy is growing palpable.

  • Andy Dalton - QB
    Posted 11/7/14 12:57pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton's 30.3 completion percentage Thursday, Nov. 6, is the worst completion percentage in a game with at least 25 attempts in franchise history.

    Huddle Up: Dalton struggled to be sure, but he wasn't helped by more than a few drops from the Cincy receivers. Also working against Dalton: Joe Haden playing like vintage Joe Haden instead of the imposter we've seen much of this year, and the positive domino effect that had on the Browns' secondary.

  • Giovani Bernard - RB
    Posted 11/6/14 10:38am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (hip) will not play in the Week 10 game Thursday, Nov. 6, according to head coach Marvin Lewis.

    Huddle Up: The team had been talking about sitting Gio since before the Week 9 game, so this should come as no surprise. Jeremy Hill gets to follow up last week's bustout performance with another fantasy-friendly opportunity.

  • Giovani Bernard - RB
    Posted 11/5/14 4:16pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (clavicle, hip) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 5, and is listed as doubtful for Week 10.

    Huddle Up: The short week has certainly done Bernard no favors as he's headed toward a second straight missed game. Rookie Jeremy Hill -- with a sprinkle of Cedric Peerman -- will shoulder the load Thursday night against the Browns.

  • Giovani Bernard - RB
    Posted 11/4/14 7:43pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (hip, shoulder) missed practice for the second straight day Tuesday, Nov. 4, and he's unlikely to play in Week 10 against the Cleveland Browns on Thursday night.

    Huddle Up: It's looking very much like another Jeremy Hill game, and his fantasy owners are salivating coming off the rookie's 163 total-yard, 2-TD performance Sunday.

  • Jermaine Gresham - TE
    Posted 11/4/14 7:43pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Jermaine Gresham (undisclosed) didn't practice Tuesday, Nov. 4, after not even being on the injury report Monday, Nov. 3.

    Huddle Up: Hopefully we'll soon have more clarity regarding the TE, who has caught 25 passes over his last 4 games.

  • Giovani Bernard - RB
    Posted 11/3/14 12:44pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (hip) is unlikely to play in Week 10 Thursday, Nov. 6, in the opinion of beat writer Paul Dehner Jr.

    Huddle Up: Jeremy Hill will start against the Browns struggling rush defense. Hill is a strong RB2 this week if Bernard is out.

  • A.J. Green - WR
    Posted 10/31/14 3:19pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe), who has missed the last three games with an injured big toe on his right foot, is expected to play, according to head coach Marvin Lewis. 'If everything stays the way it is, he'll play,' Lewis said. Green has practiced all week and hasn't shown any setbacks.

    Huddle Up: Green owners can prepare to have him back in their lineups following a 3-game absence, but be wary that the WR could re-aggravate the injury at any time.

  • Giovani Bernard - RB
    Posted 10/31/14 3:19pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (hip) has been ruled out for Week 9 against the Jacksonville Jaguars with a hip-pointer injury.

    Huddle Up: Bernard will miss his game as a pro, leaving rookie Jeremy Hill to start against the visiting Jags. Cedric Peerman and Rex Burkhead could also see a few touches, but definitely expect Hill to see his most work this season.

  • Giovani Bernard - RB
    Posted 10/31/14 11:21pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard's (hip) status for Week 10 is uncertain since the game is on Thursday, Nov. 6, and the team will take a wait-and-see approach with him, according to head coach Marvin Lewis. Bernard has already been ruled out for Week 9.

    Huddle Up: If Bernard can't go, Jeremy Hill would get the start against Cleveland's bottom five rush defense.

  • Giovani Bernard - RB
    Posted 10/30/14 10:26am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (hip, shoulder) has a hip pointer and clavicle which is bothering him and he could miss the Week 9 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to beat writer Richard Skinner. The team has a quick turnaround with a game Thursday, Nov. 6, in Week 10.

    Huddle Up: The Bengals should be able to beat Jacksonville with Jeremy Hill handling the workload, but Gio's fantasy owners--who were looking forward to a big bounceback game here--have to be disappointed at the prospects of Bernard missing this matchup entirely.

  • A.J. Green - WR
    Posted 10/30/14 7:46pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 30.

    Huddle Up: Green appears to be closer than ever to ending his current 3-game absence streak, but nothing is official just yet and might not be until Sunday morning. Stay tuned ...

  • Vontaze Burfict - LB
    Posted 10/29/14 2:33pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict (knee) underwent surgery Wednesday, Oct. 29, to remove a piece of cartilage that would have done more damage to his knee if not treated. Burfict likely will miss at least the team's next two games.

    Huddle Up: It's been one hit after another this season for the 2013 league leader in tackles, who has already missed 2 full games and has been unable to finish 3 others because of head and neck injuries.

  • A.J. Green - WR
    Posted 10/29/14 2:33pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) is participating in practice Wednesday, Oct. 29.

    Huddle Up: Good initial indicator that Green will likely return this Sunday after missing the last 3 games.

  • Giovani Bernard - RB
    Posted 10/29/14 2:33pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (hip) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Oct. 29.

    Huddle Up: Bernard is definitely banged up, but it's only the first practice of the week so certainly see how Thursday and Friday go.
