Bengals signed LS Clark Harris to a one-year extension through 2018.

A college tight end, Harris has been the Bengals' long snapper since 2009.
Oct 16 - 4:53 PM

John Ross (knee) returned to Bengals practice on Monday.

It's his first practice since Sept. 20. The rookie speedster was spotted fielding punts. Knee woes have limited the No. 9 overall pick to one touch in one appearance. He seems unlikely to contribute in re-draft leagues this season.
Oct 16 - 1:31 PM

Bengals placed TE Tyler Eifert on injured reserve with a back injury.

Eifert has opted for season-ending surgery to repair his injured back. The surgery comes with a 4-6 month recovery. An impending free agent, the injury-prone Eifert may have to settle for a reduced price on the open market this offseason.
Oct 12 - 3:20 PM

Tyler Eifert requires surgery on his back and is done for the season.

Back surgery is nothing new for Eifert, who underwent his first back surgery last December. Eifert is a supreme talent, but he simply hasn't had positive injury fortune as a pro. It's a devastating end to the 27-year-old's contract season. Tyler Kroft will be the Bengals' starter the rest of the way.
Oct 11 - 8:27 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Tyler Eifert could undergo season-ending back surgery.

A decision on the matter will likely come on Thursday. It would be Eifert's third back surgery. Eifert has missed the last three weeks and hasn't looked close to returning. His back issues could potentially put his career in jeopardy. In a contract year, Eifert is likely going to struggle for 2018 free agent interest.
Oct 11 - 4:30 PM

Bengals WR Tyler Boyd has been diagnosed with a sprained MCL.

Boyd will miss multiple weeks of action. No longer a meaningful part of the Bengals' receiver rotation, Boyd has six catches this season.
Oct 9 - 1:40 PM

Tyler Kroft caught 4-of-5 targets for 38 yards in Week 5 against Buffalo.

It's a step back after last week's 6/68/2 line. Kroft played better than his stats, making some big catches over the middle for Andy Dalton. He should remain the No. 2 option behind A.J. Green until Tyler Eifert returns.
Oct 8 - 5:15 PM

Brandon LaFell caught 5-of-8 passes for 32 yards in Week 5 against Buffalo.

LaFell was more involved this week with Tyler Boyd getting injured. His eight targets were behind only A.J. Green, though he didn't do much despite the increased role. LaFell has been dealing with a knee issue and will use the Week 6 bye to get healthy.
Oct 8 - 5:09 PM

Giovanni Bernard caught two passes for 30 yards in Week 5 against Buffalo.

Bernard didn't see many snaps with the Bengals playing with a lead. He was only targeted twice in the pass game. Bernard is a Week 6 drop candidate.
Oct 8 - 5:06 PM

Jeremy Hill had four carries for 16 yards in Week 5 against Buffalo.

Hill continued to start, but saw limited snaps behind Joe Mixon. He's been held under 30 yards in every game and hasn't had more than eight touches. Even with Joe Mixon failing to impress, the Bengals could use their Week 6 bye to phase Hill out of the offense.
Oct 8 - 5:04 PM

Joe Mixon rushed 15 times for 51 yards and a touchdown in Week 5 against Buffalo.

Mixon continued to lead the backfield, with Jeremy Hill getting just four carries. He was quiet for most of the game, but converted on a fourth quarter TD inside the five-yard line. Mixon hasn't been productive on a per-play basis, averaging just 2.8 YPC. It's a concern for his going-forward outlook, but his role looks secure with 19 touches per game the last three weeks. Mixon will get a matchup with Pittsburgh after the Bengals' bye.
Oct 8 - 4:59 PM

A.J. Green caught 7-of-13 passes for 189 yards and a touchdown in the Bengals' Week 5 win over Buffalo.

Green burned CB Tre’Davious White on a first-quarter 77-yard TD. He was featured heavily, accounting for over half of Andy Dalton's yards. Green had some negative plays despite the huge stats. He couldn’t come down with catchable throws on both of Dalton’s interceptions, and had a second half fumble. Green went down with what looked like a knee injury late, but stayed in the game. He'll have the Bengals' Week 6 bye to get healthy.
Oct 8 - 4:27 PM

Andy Dalton completed 22-of-36 passes for 328 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in Sunday's Week 5 win over Buffalo.

It was another strong game from Dalton despite the turnovers. Dalton locked on to A.J. Green, who scored a 77-yard touchdown. He injured his ankle in the first half, but played with it heavily taped. Dalton has now led the Bengals to two straight wins after a shaky start. The Bengals are on their bye in Week 6.
Oct 8 - 4:19 PM

Bengals CB Dre Kirkpatrick (shoulder) suffered a shoulder injury in Week 5 against Buffalo.

Kirkpatrick was injured in the the first half and won't return. The Bengals also ruled out Adam Jones with a low back issue.
Oct 8 - 2:44 PM

Tyler Boyd suffered a right knee injury in Week 5 against Buffalo.

He was immediately ruled out, so this is likely a serious knee issue. With Boyd sidelined, Brandon LaFell will see more targets.
Oct 8 - 1:44 PM
