Bengals RB Giovani Bernard could miss two games

Running back Giovani Bernard could miss two games with a hip pointer and clavicle injury. Regardless, there's a growing belief that Bernard will miss Sunday's game against the Jaguars, prompting the need to get Cedric Peerman and Rex Burkhead ready. Running back Giovani Bernard may not just miss Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, he may sit on Nov. 6 when the Cincinnati Bengals host the Cleveland Browns on Thursday Night Football. That, at least, is according to the mothership. Geoff Hobson writes that Bernard "is nursing both a shoulder and hip problem and could also be held...

Jaguars Luke Joeckel and cornerback Dwayne Gratz limited

We take a look at the injury and practice report of the Jacksonville Jaguars, who will play the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. Like the Bengals, they may have a few starters out. Jacksonville Jaguars starting left tackle Luke Joeckel told reporters on Thursday that he intends to play this Sunday in Cincinnati. "That’s the plan," Joeckel said via the Florida Times-Union. "I have to go through the protocol but I anticipate being back." Per Ryan O'Halloran, Joeckel said that he sustained the first quarter concussion during a field goal attempt last week. Joeckel said he was concussed on a...

Jaguars vs. Bengals injury report: Luke Joeckel and Marcedes Lewis are back

Here's your Thursday injury report for the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jacksonville Jaguars are getting back several key players in practice, including tight end Marcedes Lewis and left tackle Luke Joeckel, and there's even whispers of cornerback Aaron Colvin making his NFL debut sooner rather than later. I'd guess next week. Ma-a-a-a--aybe Sunday. RT @IrishChocolate8: @JohnOehser how far is CB Aaron Colvin from making his debut? — John Oehser (@JohnOehser) October 30, 2014 As for the Cincinnati Bengals, quite a few players didn't practice on Wednesday and while they had a few back...

Bengals avoid blackout vs. Jaguars; Looking good to avoid any in 2014

Bengals avoid blackout vs. Jaguars; Looking good to avoid any in 2014

The only other Bengals games at home left are vs. the Cleveland Browns, Pittsburgh Steelers and Denver Broncos. In what may end up being the hardest game to sell out this yea,r the Cincinnati Bengals fans came through once again. Ticket sales for this Sunday’s 1 p.m. Bengals home game against the Jacksonville Jaguars have reached the threshold to clear the game for live television coverage in the Bengals home market. The game will be aired on CBS affiliates WKRC-TV (Channel 12) in Cincinnati, WHIO-TV (Channel 7) in Dayton and WKYT-TV (Channel 27) in Lexington, Ky. While the Bengals have...

Fantasy Football Week 9 Start 'Em, Sit 'Em: QB and TE

NFL Week 9 is upon us, and here's a look at the top fantasy football QB and TE starts and sits. Cincy Jungle adds to its weekly Fantasy Football report by taking an inside look on which quarterbacks and tight ends are set to put up big numbers, and which you should avoid starting on your roster for Week 9. START: Ben Roethlisberger Big Ben put up the second 500+ yard passing game of his career last week against the Indianapolis Colts. Looking at the pass defense rankings between both last week's Colts and this week's Ravens, you find that the numbers are very similar, ranking 21st and 22nd,...

Bengals CB Dre Kirkpatrick: 'Just have to be patient'

"I just continue to learn from those guys," Kirkpatrick said via ESPN. "It's always going to be frustrating when you want to play. I've never really had to just sit. But it's a respect thing, also." Bengals cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick is itching to get on the field. As a former first-rounder, who is riding pine deep into his third season, while expecting to be a significant NFL contributor, it makes sense. Yet, he's not receiving much playing time to contribute on Paul Guenther's 30th-ranked defense. OK, simplification? The passing defense is ranked 23rd with 258.4 yards passing allowed per...

Giovani Bernard hip and shoulder injuries

Bengals running back Giovani Bernard is dealing with a hip and shoulder injury that's keeping his status in flux during the 2014 NFL season. Keep track of the latest on his status here. The Bengals are getting dangerously thin at running back vs. the Panthers with Jeremy Hill and Giovani Bernard exiting the game at different points. Hill left late in the third quarter with a bruised knee, but was eventually able to return. The Bengals may need him to carry the load the rest of the way after Bernard left with what's been called a shoulder injury, and the Bengals called his return...

Giovani Bernard and Kevin Zeitler miss Bengals practice

Giovani Bernard and Kevin Zeitler miss Bengals practice

The Bengals may be down three offensive starters vs. the Jaguars. The Bengals were back on the field Thursday, but All-Pro receiver A.J. Green was suited up and participating. After being limited Wednesday, Green reportedly had no setbacks in his recovery from an injured toe that's plagued him for two months now. In case you missed it, Bernard is expected to miss Sunday, so it came as no surprise he didn't practice Thursday. There's speculation Cedric Peerman is set to get more touches if Gio is out, but Butch Hobson thinks Rex Burkhead could be the one to get more run. No Gio....

Giovani Bernard in doubt to play vs. Jaguars; Bengals prepping Cedric Peerman

Jeremy Hill would be in line to make his first NFL start vs. the Jaguars if Giovani Bernard can't go for the Bengals. The Cincinnati Bengals are now unsure if they will have running back Giovani Bernard for their Week 09 matchup with the Jacksonville Jaguars. According to ESPN's Chris Mortensen, the Bengals are already getting third-string back Cedric Peerman ready as a complementary back to Jeremy Hill, who would be in line to make his first NFL start vs. the Jags if Gio can't go. Richard Skinner of Cincinnati.com also believes Bernard could be held out this week: @Datsko Has a hip...

Bengals winning despite having no All-Pro candidates

Some NFL writers are offering mid-season All-Pro awards. Of course, that makes us reflect. Does Cincinnati actually have any all-Pro level players this year? You're given the task of coming up with the best players at each position this year, while shuffling the profiles of 1,696 players on 32 NFL rosters. While doing that, and considering while you're a Bengals fan, how many mentions do Bengals players deserve? You could go with the traditional A.J. Green, Vontaze Burfict and Geno Atkins selections... however, injuries (and the recovery from injury) continue to push this season into...

Where are the Cincinnati Bengals rookies?

PFF is tracking NFL rookies this year and there are some good players contributing this year. Yet, while reading through the list, I thought to myself, where are Cincinnati's rookies. Pro Football Focus is keeping tabs on the league's top rookies this year. It essentially comes down to this... Oakland Raiders linebacker Khalil Mack and St. Louis Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald are impressing folks with their ability to challenge the run. Offensive guards Joel Bitonio (Browns) and Zach Martin (Cowboys) are holding their own as are linebackers C.J. Mosley (Ravens) and Anthony Barr...

Bengals Bites (10/30) - Burfict Out, Green In

Vontaze Burfict gets a knee procedure done and is expected to miss 2 weeks. A.J. Green is back at practice for the first time in a month. Andy Dalton Will Be X-Factor For Cincinnati Bengals In Week 9 | RantSportsThe Cincinnati Bengals just got their first win since Week 3 when they beat the Baltimore Ravens 27-24. They did it despite not having a passing touchdown all game. Andy Dalton has to play better if the Bengals are going to be true contenders. He has a chance to gain some confidence this week, facing the hapless Jacksonville Jaguars. Gio Bernard among Bengals not practicing -...

Jaguars LT Luke Joeckel cleared and may play the Bengals

Former first round draft pick Luke Joeckel suffered a concussion last week against the Miami Dolphins. He's been cleared for non-contact drills and may play the Bengals this Sunday. Luke Joeckel, a first-round pick during the '13 NFL draft, started five games last season before fracturing his right ankle on Oct. 9 against the Rams in St. Louis. Pro Football Focus graded his rookie season with -7.7 overall score, which broke down into a -4.8 run block score and -2.5 in pass protection (allowed three sacks and 12 pressures). This year hasn't been any kinder for Joeckel, where his PFF score...

Brandon Thompson inching closer towards his eventual return

Provided that the soreness in his knee is gone, Thompson figures return this Sunday when Cincinnati hosts Jacksonville. Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Brandon Thompson was a full participant during Wednesday's practice, offering a glimpse into his rehabilitation as he makes his way back from a week two knee injury. Thompson, who secured four tackles during the regular season opener in Baltimore, was a full participant during Thursday's practice last week, but scaled back on Friday when his knee became sore. Thompson has missed the last five games. Provided that the soreness in his...

NFL Fantasy Football Week 9 Start 'Em, Sit 'Em: WR Edition

Here's a look at the top fantasy football wide receiver starts and sits of NFL Week 9. With Week 9 looming, Cincy Jungle takes an early look at the wide receivers you should start, and which ones you should sit to get the most points out of your roster. START: Antonio Brown Brown was the largest benefactor of Big Ben's 522 yard performance in Week 8, grabbing 133 yards on ten receptions, including two touchdowns. Brown's speed and ability to catch contested passes continue to make him a game-changer both as an over-the-top threat, and a force after the catch. Against the Ravens' pass...

Bengals RB Giovani Bernard absent during Wednesday's practice

Bengals RB Giovani Bernard absent during Wednesday's practice

Cincinnati Bengals running back Giovani Bernard suffered a hip injury during Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens. He wasn't seen during Wednesday's practice. Running back Giovani Bernard walked off the field with more than seven minutes remaining when Cincinnati defeated the Baltimore Ravens. It still feels good saying that. This actually marked the final play for Bernard last Sunday, finishing with a team-high 45 yards rushing. By Monday afternoon, it was believed that Bernard's injury wasn't significant but it's also been somewhat quiet on the Bernard front. During Wednesday's...

Bengals optimistic that television blackout will be lifted against Jaguars

"We feel pretty good about getting there for tomorrow," said Brown via Bengals.com. "Looking at things earlier in the offseason, you could easily identify this as a game that would need some help." If you're expecting late-night terrors and sweat-inducing nightmares because, let's face it... if the Bengals struggled selling out against the Atlanta Falcons, Tennessee Titans and Carolina Panthers, how in this world will they sell enough tickets for Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars? The... one and seven... Jaguars... whose lone win came against the Cleveland Browns (not that...
