C.J. Uzomah caught two passes for 13 yards and a touchdown in Week 7 against the Chiefs.

Uzomah caught Andy Dalton's only touchdown on a play that capped off a 77-yard second quarter drive. It was his only notable play of the night. Uzomah has been a plug-and-play TE1 since Tyler Eifert went down. He has a plus matchup with the Bucs in Week 8.

Tyler Boyd caught 2-of-4 passes for 27 yards in Week 7 against the Chiefs.

Boyd was invisible in the first half, getting held without a catch. He managed to get some targets late with the Bengals airing it out, but it's a disappointing game. Boyd has been held under 50 yards in two of the last three weeks. He'll be a low-end WR2 for Week 8 against the Bucs.
Oct 21 - 11:49 PM

A.J. Green caught 7-of-14 targets for 117 yards in Week 7 against the Chiefs.

Green had over 100 yards in the first half. He was a huge mismatch for Orlando Scandrick, but the Bengals struggled to sustain drives all night. Green had a near-touchdown but tripped and was tackled inside the five-yard line. He faded in the second half, finishing with just one catch over the final two quarters. Green will remain a WR1 for Week 8’s matchup with the Bucs.

Joe Mixon rushed 13 times for 50 yards in Week 7 against the Chiefs.

Mixon continued to rarely leave the field with Giovanni Bernard sidelined. He fell victim to gameflow with the Bengals playing from behind but still managed a solid per-carry average. Mixon had some of his better runs called back on penalties. With Bernard likely at least another week away, Mixon is locked into another heavy workload in Week 8 against the Bucs.

Andy Dalton completed 15-of-29 passes for 148 yards with a touchdown and an interception in Week 7 against Kansas City.

The Bengals got off to a sluggish start, but Dalton managed a first-quarter touchdown to C.J. Uzomah. He telegraphed a pick-six on the first drive of second half and couldn’t get anything going after that. It’s one of the worst starts of the season for Dalton, who’s had multiple TDs in 5-of-7 games. Dalton has a rebound matchup with the Bucs in Week 8

John Ross left Week 7 against the Chiefs with a groin injury.

This is the same injury that sidelined Ross the last two games. Ross is likely to miss more time with his latest setback.
Oct 21 - 11:20 PM

Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict suffered a hip injury in Week 7 against the Chiefs.

He's done for the game. Burfict was limping badly, so he's likely going to miss practice time this week. Jordan Evans is Burfict's backup.

C.J. Uzomah (shoulder) is active for Week 7 against the Chiefs.

Uzomah's status wasn't in doubt after he was removed from the injury report. The Bengals inactives are CB Darqueze Dennard, RB Giovani Bernard , C Billy Price , LB Nick Vigil, TE Tyler Kroft, WR Josh Malone, and DT Josh Tupou.
Oct 21 - 6:59 PM

C.J. Uzomah (shoulder) wasn't listed on the Bengals' final injury report for Week 7 against the Chiefs.

He was upgraded to full participation at Friday's practice after being limited earlier in the week. Uzomah drew a season-high seven targets in last week's loss to Pittsburgh and should continue to play an active role in the Bengals' passing game sans Tyler Eifert (I.R., ankle). He'll be an intriguing streamer Sunday night against Kansas City's Swiss cheese secondary.

Giovani Bernard (knee) is out for Week 7 against the Chiefs.

It'll again be Mark Walton in the lightly-used changeup spot behind Joe Mixon.
Oct 19 - 12:24 PM

C.J. Uzomah (shoulder) is practicing Thursday.

He was limited again, but two practices in a row to start the week suggest he will be fine to face the Chiefs on Sunday night. In a great matchup, he will be a back-end TE1.
Oct 18 - 11:58 AM

Giovani Bernard (knee) did not practice Thursday.

He also sat out Wednesday's session, and it would be a shock if he is ready to return this week. With Bernard out, Joe Mixon is a workhorse back in a great matchup against the Chiefs.
Oct 18 - 11:47 AM

Giovani Bernard (knee) remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice.

Team reporter Geoff Hobson expects Bernard to miss another game Sunday against Kansas City, which would be his third straight absence. Gio was playing well before his injury but with Joe Mixon occupying close to an every-down role, he'll just be a handcuff/change-of-pace option upon his return.

John Ross (groin) is practicing in full for Week 7 against the Chiefs.

Ross was limited at last week's practices before sitting out against Pittsburgh. He should be available this week, though the 2017 first-rounder isn't someone fantasy owners can count on yet.

C.J. Uzomah (shoulder) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Uzomah's shoulder injury isn't thought to be serious. At a thin fantasy position, Uzomah will have streaming appeal Sunday night against a bottom-rung Chiefs secondary.
