Bengals first-round C Billy Price has been cleared from his pectoral injury.

Price suffered a partially torn pectoral while participating in the bench press event at the Combine. He said he was "way ahead of schedule" after the draft, and he has been cleared with weeks to spare before training camp. Price should open the season as the Bengals' starter at center.

The Cincinnati Enquirer's Paul Dehner singled out seventh-round WR Auden Tate as one of the most impressive players at Bengals OTAs and minicamp.

Tate is massive at 6'5/228 but proved to be a subpar athlete with 4.68 speed and a 31-inch vertical at the Combine, leading to him tumbling to the seventh round. However, his size and "high-pointing ability" has made him a standout this spring, according to Dehner. "He hit points in the sky where he was catching a ball where just guys can't really get there," Dehner said. The Bengals are starving for wideout production behind A.J. Green. Tate will have to do it when pads come on.

Bengals RT Jake Fisher has been cleared to practice.

Fisher had surgery in February to correct an irregular heartbeat. He'll require checkups but looks to be fully healthy. Fisher is competing with Bobby Hart and Cedric Ogbuehi for the Bengals' right tackle job.

Coach Marvin Lewis hinted Tyler Eifert (back) may not be ready for training camp.

When asked, Lewis said he simply does not know if the oft-injured Eifert will be ready. He was limited at OTAs last month but has sat out all of minicamp this week and may have suffered a setback. Anything the Bengals get from Eifert this year will have to be considered a bonus. Tyler Kroft and C.J. Uzomah are his backups.

Bengals seventh-round QB Logan Woodside was arrested for speeding and DUI Saturday in Bellevue, Ky.

Woodside was the 249th overall pick in April's draft. He was booked by police at 3:46 AM over the weekend and blew a .112 blood-alcohol content. Woodside was speeding in a parking lot shortly before the time of his arrest. The former Toledo signal-caller is one of four QBs on the Bengals' roster.

Marvin Lewis was vague on Tyler Eifert's health after he missed Tuesday's minicamp session.

Per reporter Jim Owczarski, Lewis was "surprised" at Eifert's absence. "As time goes on when we start to play football then we will have an idea of where he is," Lewis said afterward. Eifert claimed he was back to full health in March, but he was limited in last month's OTAs sessions. One of the league's least-durable players, Eifert has appeared in 24-of-64 possible games over the past four years.

Bengals DE Carlos Dunlap claims his absence from voluntary OTAs, which cost him a $300,000 bonus, was not about his contract.

Dunlap said he "wanted to remain working out in Florida and it was not related to the contract." That doesn't pass the smell test, especially since Dunlap added the sides have made progress on an extension as he heads into the final year of his deal. Coming off a 7.5-sack campaign, 2018 will be Dunlap's age-29 season.

Second-year WR Josh Malone hopes to force his way into the Bengals' rotation this season.

"That’s definitely my mentality," Malone said. "Of course, I want more this year and want to have more of an impact this year than last year." The No. 128 overall pick of last year's draft, Malone made seven "starts," but played just 247 snaps on offense. He caught six passes for 63 yards and one touchdown. If he's going to carve out a 2018 role, it will be with his prodigious long speed.

Tyler Eifert (back) was limited at OTAs last week.

He was reportedly moving at "half speed" and didn't participate in 11-on-11 drills. Back surgery limited Eifert to just two games last year, though the tight end plans to be a full go for training camp. "I'm on schedule," he said. "I don’t want to go out there and have any setbacks or anything, so just methodically moving forward." Eifert has always been a big red-zone presence, but his durability remains a major concern for fantasy owners.
May 27 - 11:15 AM

Second-year DE Jordan Willis is expected to take over as the Bengals' "every-down" right end.

Willis won Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year as a senior before being picked in the third round of last year's draft. He played 360 snaps as a rookie, receiving strong marks from Pro Football Focus for his run defense, and Willis tested extremely well athletically before the draft. Veteran RE Michael Johnson is expected to move to a backup role, while Cincy also used a third-rounder on DE Sam Hubbard this year. 2017 fourth-rounder Carl Lawson will be in the mix, too.

Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official website expects WR Tyler Boyd to man the slot for Cincinnati and "also get some looks on the outside."

Boyd missed time last season with a sprained MCL and also was a healthy scratch at times, as Hobson notes the receiver and the coaches didn't completely see eye to eye. Hobson anticipates Boyd being a beneficiary of new full-time OC Bill Lazor's offense and expects the third-year wideout to have a "solid year." The Bengals need some of their young receivers to step up.

Bengals DE Carlos Dunlap did not report for the start of OTAs.

Dunlap also missed all of the voluntary workouts, costing himself a $300,000 workout bonus. The defensive end has not said why he is skipping voluntary work, but it likely has something to do with a contract which is set to expire after this season. The Bengals have said their goal is to get an extension done prior to Week 1.
May 22 - 12:15 PM

Bengals signed No. 21 overall pick C Billy Price to a four-year contract.

Price moved from guard to center as a senior at Ohio State and dominated there, winning with strength and explosiveness off the snap. An intense competitor with four years of high-level performance on film, Price is about as "pro ready" with a "high floor" as college offensive linemen get. Price is currently recovering from a torn pec suffered at the Combine but is expected to be ready for Week 1.
May 21 - 1:30 PM

Bengals WR John Ross says he feels as healthy as he has since his final year of college.

"I couldn’t ask to feel any better than I do now," Ross said. Ross missed the entirety of his rookie offseason recovering from shoulder surgery before knee issues marred his regular season. The team has been imploring him to think less on the field, and he's been drawing raves this spring. "He looks good. Completely different than he did last year," Andy Dalton said. "You can tell he worked hard. It looks like he’s getting back to where he was. He looks smooth." The next NFL pass Ross catches will be his first.

Bengals signed seventh-round WR Auden Tate to a four-year contract.

Standing 6-foot-5, 228 pounds, Tate has impressive size, a big catch radius, and was a two-year contributor at Florida State, but he tested as a sub-par athlete at the Combine, running a 4.68 with a 31-inch vertical. He will have to be a contested-catch specialist in the NFL.
