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.
Andy Dalton - QBPosted 9/15/14 9:08pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton has not been hit once on 63 dropbacks so far this season.
Huddle Up: Pressure, as it is with most QBs, has been especially bothersome to Dalton. Still he's been kept clean and Dalton's responded with a 40-of-61 performance, 553 yards and a pair of TDs without a turnover against the Ravens and Falcons. Tougher tests loom, though, against the Patriots and Panthers after the team's Week 4 bye.
A.J. Green - WRPosted 9/14/14 8:20pm ET
Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) suffered a turf toe injury in the Week 2 game against the Atlanta Falcons, a league source said Sunday, Sept. 14. He left early and was unable to return. It is uncertain how much time he will miss.
Huddle Up: Green's status will be updated later in the week but there's a chance he could be out against Tennessee, so owners need to be prepared with other options.
Vontaze Burfict - LBPosted 9/12/14 2:37pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict (concussion) was back on the field and looked to be a full-go in practice Friday, Sept. 12.
Huddle Up: The 2013 league total-tackles leader missed the team's practices earlier in the week, but he reportedly has passed the initial steps in the concussion protocol so he just may be able to suit up and play Sunday. Stay tuned . . .
A.J. Green - WRPosted 9/12/14 2:52pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (foot) was back at practice Friday, Sept. 12, after being held out as a precaution Thursday, Sept. 11. Head coach Marvin Lewis said Green will play in Week 2 against the Atlanta Falcons.
Huddle Up: Have no real concerns about Green who has a juicy matchup against an Atlanta pass defense that surrendered 333 passing yards to the Saints in Week 1.
A.J. Green - WRPosted 9/11/14 2:39pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (foot) is not taking part in practice Thursday, Sept. 11.
Huddle Up: This would seem to be a step back for Green who was limited Wednesday, but it could also be a mid-week precautionary measure as well. If he's out again Friday, though, then we might have a situation.
Vontaze Burfict - LBPosted 9/11/14 2:39pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict (concussion) is not participating in practice Thursday, Sept. 11.
Huddle Up: There's a chance the LB will get back on the field Friday, but the odds are increasing that the tackling machine will miss Sunday's game against the Falcons.
Tyler Eifert - TEPosted 9/10/14 4:45pm ET
The Cincinnati Bengals have placed TE Tyler Eifert (elbow) on the Active/Reserve/Injured list.
Huddle Up: Tough break for Eifert sustaining a dislocated elbow right out of the gate. In the meantime, though, this of course means more targets for fellow TE Jermaine Gresham who caught 2 of the 5 passes directed his way for 16 yards in Week 1.
Tyler Eifert - TEPosted 9/8/14 11:01am ET
Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (elbow) may be a candidate for short-term injured reserve due to his elbow injury. If Eifert elects short-term IR, he would be sidelined at least eight weeks.
Huddle Up: Eifert's ugly elbow injury will likely keep him down for a timeframe close to the eight-week short-term IR window, so don't be surprised if that's what the Bengals opt to do. Jermaine Gresham will see the bulk of Cincy's tight end snaps with Eifert out.
Giovani Bernard - RBPosted 9/4/14 3:44pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard will likely see more touches than RB Jeremy Hill in Week 1, according to head coach Marvin Lewis.
Huddle Up: More touches? Bernard's fantasy owners are most certainly hoping so with their man being drafted, on average, a full 100 picks before the second-round pick who's coming off a strong preseason showing.
Tyler Eifert - TEPosted 9/4/14 6:13pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (shoulder) practiced in full Thursday, Sept. 4.
Huddle Up: Eifert, who missed Cincy's final 3 exhibition games with the bum shoulder, has practiced two straight days now and looks as if he'll be good to go Sunday.
Tyler Eifert - TEPosted 9/3/14 10:30pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (shoulder) said he is feeling great and that he expects to play Week 1.
Huddle Up: Eifert should see an expanded role in his second season with the Bengals. He opens the year as a TE2 with upside.
Jeremy Hill - RBPosted 8/29/14 12:36am ET
Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill (elbow) returned to the team's preseason finale Thursday, Aug. 28, after being evaluated in the locker room at halftime. He finished the game with 20 carries for 90 yards and six catches for 70 yards.
Huddle Up: The injury scare obviously was just that, and the second-round pick capped off a strong preseason with his best performance yet. Giovanni Bernard is still the man in Cincy, but Hill will see his fair share of touches.
BenJarvus Green-Ellis - RBPosted 8/29/14 4:53pm ET
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.
Jeremy Hill - RBPosted 8/28/14 10:54pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill left the team's preseason game Thursday, Aug. 28, with a right-elbow injury and is questionable to return.
Huddle Up: Potentially significant fantasy impact here as the second-round pick is in line to back up Giovanni Bernard after an impressive preseason. Stay tuned.
Vontaze Burfict - LBPosted 8/24/14 10:26pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict left the team's preseason game Sunday, Aug. 24, with a hamstring injury and will not return.
Huddle Up: Last season's league total-tackles leader and beneficiary of a shiny new contract left early in the opening quarter Sunday, but coach Marvin Lewis doesn't sound overly concerned, telling NBC sideline reporter Michele Tafoya the injury is "no big deal."
Jeremy Hill - RBPosted 8/22/14 2:03pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill could see some carries with the first-team offense in the third preseason game Sunday, Aug. 24.
Huddle Up: The second-round pick leads all Cincy RBs this preseason with 65 total yards on 11 touches and definitely should be the second Bengals' RB coming off the boards in fantasy drafts behind, of course, Giovanni Bernard.
Jeremy Hill - RBPosted 8/20/14 12:01am ET
Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill (shoulder) returned to practice Tuesday, Aug. 19.
Huddle Up: The second-round draft pick has shown some productive flashes with 11 touches for 65 yards this preseason, but things are far from settled in the Cincy backfield with incumbents Giovanni Bernard, BenJarvus Green-Ellis and Cedric Peerman all still in the mix for touches as well. See how Hill's week goes and if he's able to give it a go in Cincy's third preseason tilt Sunday night in Arizona.
Vontaze Burfict - LBPosted 8/20/14 6:01pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict agreed to a multi-year contract extension Wednesday, Aug. 20. Terms of the new deal were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: The undrafted LB and 2013 NFL total tackles leader (177) certainly is worthy.
Mohamed Sanu - WRPosted 8/12/14 4:24pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals WR Mohamed Sanu has been impressive this preseason, and he can be used as a receiver, rusher or even occasional quarterback. Sanu has picked up the slack in the passing game in the absence of WR Marvin Jones (foot).
Huddle Up: Sanu started 14 games a year ago and nearly tripled his rookie-season reception total (16 to 47), but that only netted him 10 more fantasy points (48 to 58) with only one double-digit-point game, thanks largely to a passing TD. In short, Sanu may be more versatile than Jones, but he's not in his same fantasy class.
Jason Campbell - QBPosted 8/12/14 10:22pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals QB Jason Campbell (arm) was in street clothes watching practice Tuesday, Aug. 12.
Huddle Up: It sounds like Andy Dalton's backup might miss the team's second preseason game, leaving the reserve QB duties to Matt Scott and newly signed Tyler Wilson. Meanwhile, fifth-round pick A.J. McCarron remains on the PUP list with a shoulder issue, and it's unlikely he's going to see the field any time soon.
Marvin Jones - WRPosted 8/11/14 8:38pm ET
Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals WR Marvin Jones is expected to be sidelined for at least six weeks because of his broken left foot, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Not good news for the Bengals or the immediate fantasy value of Andy Dalton as Jones was penciled in as the starter opposite A.J. Green. Mohamed Sanu or Dane Sanzenbacher are the likely candidates to step in for Jones, but neither is his fantasy equal.
Jason Campbell - QBPosted 8/8/14 3:58pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals QB Jason Campbell suffered an arm injury in the team's first preseason game Thursday, Aug. 8, and is scheduled to undergo tests Friday.
Huddle Up: Fifth-round draft pick A.J. McCarron and vomiting sensation Matt Scott are the other QBs on the depth chart so Cincy might be inclined to add a veteran QB is Campbell's injury turns out to be serious.
A.J. Green - WRPosted 8/5/14 11:18am ET
Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green was texted by head coach Marvin Lewis over the weekend to have Green's agent initiate contract extension talks.
Huddle Up: The Bengals just locked up Andy Dalton; makes sense to lock up his top target as well.
Andy Dalton - QBPosted 8/4/14 2:36pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton has agreed to a six-year, $115 million extension with the team. The league hasn't received the paperwork for the deal yet, but it is expected to be finalized Monday, Aug. 4.
Huddle Up: The contract is mostly front-loaded, with Dalton earning $17 million guaranteed and a chance to earn $19 million more through escalators. Dalton is now one of the Top 10 highest paid quarterbacks in the NFL but still only a QB2 for fantasy purposes.
BenJarvus Green-Ellis - RBPosted 8/2/14 12:59pm ET
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.
Mohamed Sanu - WRPosted 8/1/14 11:17am ET
Cincinnati Bengals WR Mohamed Sanu is generating strong buzz in camp, which could lead to more time in the slot and more catches this season if things work out.
Huddle Up: Sanu projects to be a complementary part of the Bengals' receiver rotation, but if he plays well he could push the currently-sidelined Marvin Jones for wingman duties alongside AJ Green.
Geno Atkins - DTPosted 7/30/14 2:14pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals DT Geno Atkins (knee) will participate in practice Wednesday, July 30.
Huddle Up: Good to see the big fella back in action after he was activated from the PUP list earlier Wednesday. Atkins leads all NFL DTs with 29 sacks over the past 4 seasons.
Tyler Eifert - TEPosted 7/24/14 11:53pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert said the shoulder injury he had during the offseason workouts has completely healed.
Huddle Up: The second-year TE will be getting first-team reps early in camp with Jermaine Gresham on the PUP list as he looks to build on his 39-445-2 rookie season.
Marvin Jones - WRPosted 7/22/14 1:12pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals WR Marvin Jones (ankle), QB A.J. McCarron (shoulder) and CB Onterio McCalebb (knee) have been placed on the Non-Football Injury list.
Huddle Up: According to reports, including one on Pro Football Talk, Jones' injury is a minor one sustained working out with Andy Dalton in a post-OTA passing camp. Jones is sure to elicit varied fantasy opinions this summer as he's coming off a 51-712-10 season but 14-207-6 came in just two games.
