Bengals placed TE Jermaine Gresham (back) on the active/PUP list.

Gresham underwent hernia surgery in the spring and missed OTAs and minicamp. He's not quite ready, but should be considered day-to-day or week-to-week. Gresham is way off the fantasy radar with Tyler Eifert in the fold.

Bengals owner/GM Mike Brown believes walk-year QB Andy Dalton will be the team's quarterback for the "immediate future."

Brown also endorsed a Colin Kaepernick-style "pay as you go" type contract for Dalton's deal, and admitted the franchise tag is a possibility for 2015. All in all, it's not a very strong endorsement, definitely not the kind you'd hear from an owner talking about someone he considered a franchise quarterback.

Bengals RCB Leon Hall (PUP, Achilles') is expected to be activated within the week.

Coach Marvin Lewis has raved about Hall's recovery all offseason, and kept at it this week. Hall is now nine months removed from the injury that ended his 2013. With tears to both Achilles' now on his résumé heading into his age-29 campaign, Hall will be a question mark this season.

Bengals placed G/C Mike Pollak (knee) on the active/PUP list.

Pollak avoided PUP when the Bengals put nine on the list Monday, leading many to believe Pollak was recovered from his knee issue. It doesn't appear that way. We'll consider Pollak week-to-week. The more time he misses, the more opportunities rookie Russell Bodine will get as the starting center.
Jul 22 - 3:38 PM

Bengals DC Paul Guenther said he expects DT Geno Atkins (knee, active/PUP) to be ready for Week 1.

Coach Marvin Lewis said they'll hold Atkins on the active/PUP list for a few days to open training camp just to "get a look at him." It sounds like he'll be practicing sometime within the next week or so. The Bengals will likely limit Atkins' snaps during the preseason in an effort to have him 100 percent for the opener.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports George Iloka has a "stranglehold" on the Bengals' starting strong safety job.

Iloka started all 16 games last season as a first-year starter and racked up 66 tackles, six pass breakups, two forced fumbles, and an interception. The Bengals signed Danieal Manning as a free agent and also have Taylor Mays and sophomore Shawn Williams as options at safety. Manning is expected to play the majority of his snaps as the nickel corner. Reggie Nelson is the free safety.

Marvin Jones (ankle) is expected to practice this week.

Jones tweaked his ankle at a post-OTA passing camp arranged by Andy Dalton. Although he's on the active/NFI list for now, it's not a real concern.
Jul 21 - 9:36 PM

Bengals G/C Mike Pollak (knee) is 100 percent for training camp.

Pollak's spring absence was described as "rest." He's expected to beat out fourth-round C Russell Bodine for starting duties in the middle. Pollak has missed 22 games over the past two seasons, so his health is a major question mark.
Jul 21 - 4:31 PM

Bengals placed DT Geno Atkins (knee) on the active/PUP list.

Joining him there will be OG Clint Boling (knee), LB Marquis Flowers (hamstring), CB Leon Hall (Achilles), P Kevin Huber (neck), WR Colin Lockett (hamstring), DT Zach Minter (back), DT Devon Still (back) and WR Ryan Whalen (hamstring). Updates on Atkins' status have been scarce, but he's now roughly nine months removed from blowing out his knee. He could end up missing the entire preseason, but should still be considered better than 50-50 to be ready for Week 1. His status will be updated in the coming weeks.
Jul 21 - 4:02 PM

Bengals placed WR Marvin Jones (ankle), CB Onterio McCalebb (knee) and QB AJ McCarron (shoulder) on the active/NFI list.

None of the injuries are considered serious, though McCarron's throwing shoulder was reportedly a minor issue in the run up to the draft. Jones will likely be activated within the week. It's not a concern for his fantasy draft status.
Jul 21 - 3:57 PM

Bengals signed DT Lakendrick Ross.

Ross was not selected in the July supplemental draft despite a gargantuan 6-foot-5, 360-pound frame. He could be a practice squad candidate in Cincy.
Jul 21 - 1:49 PM

ESPN Bengals reporter Coley Harvey thinks Jeremy Hill will "certainly" break out this season.

The Bengals wasted no time installing Hill as their power complement to Giovani Bernard, moving the second-round rookie ahead of BenJarvus Green-Ellis at the beginning of the offseason program. He's going to get plenty of work as new OC Hue Jackson attempts to implement a Seahawks or 49ers-esque kind of scheme. Hill's ADP is currently in the Round 9-11 range, but that will rise sharply if BJGE can't beat out Rex Burkhead for a roster spot.

Bengals will work out UDFA DT Lakendrick Ross on Monday.

Ross went undrafted in the Supplemental Draft after being declared ineligible for the 2014 college football season. Ross is a giant at 6-foot-5, 360 pounds, and has reportedly drawn interest from several NFL teams. The Bengals still have one spot open on their 90-man training camp roster.

A.J. Green believes his contract situation is on the "back burner" with the Bengals.

The Bengals exercised Green's fifth-year option for 2015 in April, removing any sense of urgency to strike a deal before the season. "That’s fine with me," Green said. "I don’t even look at it like that. I just go out there and play and my time will come. ... It’s not surprising. Teams always want to wait." Green has the sound of a man who knows that, sooner or later, he's going to be one of the top-paid wideouts in the league.

A.J. Green remains confident the Bengals will reach a long-term agreement with Andy Dalton.

"I know they know he’s the guy," Green said confidently. "I feel like they’re going to get something done before the season starts." Green has been outspoken in his support of his quarterback, but the team has been less effusive. Owner Mike Brown referred to the situation as a "dilemma" in March. Never known to overpay for anything, Brown is likely to drive a hard bargain with his middle-of-the-road quarterback.
