Baltimore Ravens TE Owen Daniels sits and a look at opposing tight ends

There's no question that opposing tight ends have had money-making success against the Cincinnati Bengals defense. One of those tight ends sat on Wednesday with a knee injury. Baltimore Ravens tight end Owen Daniels didn't practice on Wednesday, as per the team's official injury and practice report. The injury is listed as a "knee". Like many veterans across the league, Daniels usually receives veteran rest days but according to ESPN, the reason being a "knee" is a first. Per the Carroll County Times, Daniels "limped off the field at one point during the Ravens 29-7 win over the Atlanta...

Bengals working on Vontaze Burfict's tackling technique

Bengals working on Vontaze Burfict's tackling technique

Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Paul Guenther appeared frustrated when talking about Vontaze Burfict's tackling technique. Because when it comes down to it, he says, it's hurting the team. Vontaze Burfict. His injury situation is understood by Bengals fans, like students in a class that teaches philosophy. Internal questions and comments are spoken, but rarely understood. "Have I had two roads, I would have chosen their third." What does that even mean, Darwish? The situation with Burfict feels like it's reaching a state of peril. A concussion becomes two concussions. Tackles take...

Giovani Bernard limited at practice; Rey Maualuga ruled out vs. Ravens

Giovani Bernard was limited in Wednesday's practice with injured ribs. The Bengals will be without starting middle linebacker Rey Maualuga in Week 8 when the Ravens come to town. Maualuga is still dealing with a hamstring injury suffered in Week 6 vs. the Panthers that has cost him two games now that he's been ruled out of Week 8. He's expected to miss several games after this week as well. It's a tough break for Maualuga, whose in a contract year, but won't be able to do enough to earn a contract that pays him anything more than fringe starter money. As for Giovani Bernard, the...

Leon Hall misses practice; Vontaze Burfict and Emmanuel Lamur go

Leon Hall misses practice; Vontaze Burfict and Emmanuel Lamur go

The Bengals had several injured players practice Wednesday, but Pro Bowl cornerback Leon Hall was not among them. When the Bengals face the Ravens in Week 8, Cincinnati may be the healthiest they've been since the two teams first faced off in Week 1. In addition to A.J. Green being back at the rehab field on Wednesday, Emmanuel Lamur and Brandon Thompson were able to fully practice. Lamur's return is the most notable, as he's playing almost 80 snaps per game this year, and was leading the team in tackles before missing Week 7 with a shoulder injury. Lamur also intercepted Joe Flacco in...

Bengals Week Seven "Goat Of The Week" Award

We take a look at some of the Bengals players who weren't quite up to snuff in their 27-0 loss to the Colts. Unlike the weekly MVP award that we give out here at CJ, the "Goat of the Week" award will be much more difficult to lay out. Why? Well, frankly, there are so many performances (I use that term loosely) that could be scoffed at from Bengals players. Nevertheless, we'll try. Cast your vote and sound off on who you think that the Week Seven "Goat of the Week" Award winner should be. Andy Dalton, QB: The major criticism on Dalton over the years has been that he reliant on the talent...

Leon Hall suffers back strain

Leon Hall left vs. the Colts with a back strain. Keep track of the latest on it here. The injury bug feel more like an injury parasite right now for the Bengals. Not long after Cincinnati lost starting weakside linebacker Vontaze Burfict to a neck injury, Pro Bowl cornerback Leon Hall was later forced from their Week 7 game against the Colts. Hall appeared to come up gimpy after dropping a gimme interception. Once he left the game, first-round rookie Darqueze Dennard entered the game to take over Hall's slot spot. Hal has since been declared "doubtful" to return by the team with what's...

A.J. Green doesn't practice but does get rehab work in

The bengals need A.J. Green when they face the Ravens in an AFC North showdown. For once, the news regarding A.J. Green's absence at practice wasn't all bad. Though the All-Pro receiver wasn't able to return to practice on Wednesday, he was working on the rehab field in hopes he can get healthy enough to play Sunday vs. the Baltimore Ravens. green headed to rehab field — Geoff Hobson (@GeoffHobsonCin) October 22, 2014 green getting in some jogging and some high-stepping — Geoff Hobson (@GeoffHobsonCin) October 22, 2014 The Cincinnati Bengals have gone a month now without a...

From Russell Bodine Skeptic to Believer

Yours truly believes in Russell Bodine now. Here's my comprehensive view of his progression from draft day until now. In Sunday's disastrous loss to the Colts, starting C Russell Bodine was a mild bright spot. True, the O-line surrendered 4 sacks, but none of them were given up by Bodine individually. True, he had one snap nearly go awry, but that was simply a fluke miscommunication with Dalton, not that the snap itself was off-target. It probably won't happen again. Bodine was not perfect and didn't do particularly well in run-blocking against the Colts front, particularly NT Josh Chapman,...

Bengals Bites (10/22) - Ticket Issues

The talk of blackouts and empty stadiums is heating up as the Bengals have a stretch of home games coming up. The Ravens and Bengals seem to be trending in opposite directions. With three home games in 12 days, Bengals are facing blackouts | ProFootballTalk“We still have tickets available for each of the three games and are working hard to sell as many as we can and get the games on TV,” Bengals ticket sales manager Andrew Brown said. A.J. Green of Cincinnati Bengals says he's 'up in the air' for Sunday's game - ESPNBengals Pro Bowl receiver A.J. Green said in an interview on NFL...

NFL Trade Deadline: 5 Players that could be on the block

Just ahead of the NFL trade deadline, we look at five players that could be on new teams soon enough. At the midway of the season, we're starting to see which teams are emerging as true contenders and which teams are being weeded out as pretenders. And of course, there are some teams where we still have no idea what to think. No matter what, at this point, there are always going to rumors on the best candidates to hit the trading block as contenders try to stack the roster and fill the gaps, while the league's pretenders do their best to take advantage of their players' worth for future...

Kevin Zeitler plays well in return to continue good season

Kevin Zeitler plays well in return to continue good season

The Bengals continue to get good play out of Kevin Zeitler, and that will be key going forward. There wasn't much good to come out of Sunday's game vs. the Colts. One bright spot that did emerge was starting right guard Kevin Zeitler making his return and played fairly well at Indy. Prior to his calf injury, Zeitler received a 2.1 grade from Pro Football Focus in the 1.5 games he played vs. the Ravens and Falcons. In comparison, Mike Pollak has a 0.0 through 2.5 games.  Zeitler's 1.3 pass-blocking grade was also fourth-best on the team, as he has yet to surrender a sack, hit or hurry in...

Boomer Esiason Named Feline League Commissioner

Boomer Esiason Named Feline League Commissioner

Beloved former Bengal named Commissioner of Feline Football League by the Hallmark Channel. As you might expect from the Hallmark Channel, they have created a new football league that oozes with cuteness. To run this league they chose former Bengal, Boomer Esiason as commissioner. According to the Hallmark Channel: Esiason will serve as spokesperson for the FFL, which includes a Scouting Combine, draft, season games and playoffs that lead up to the biggest feline showdown in history, "Kitten Bowl II," premiering Su-purr Bowl Sunday, February 1, 2015. The league is a celebration of pet...

Meet Kryshana Pierce

Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton was the destination of one woman, who evaded security and ran onto the field to meet the superstar quarterback. Meet Kryshana Pierce, a 23-year old woman who found a way through security to jump onto the field and meet with several players on the field. Only... she did it illegally. Pierce is the woman that tapped Andy Dalton on the shoulder during Cincinnati's game against the Indianapolis Colts. Per ABC Channel 6 in Indianapolis: She reportedly was able to speak to and touch a Bengals player before Colts security guards got hold of her and kicked her out...

Bengals Veterans Remaining Calm And Confident Amidst Three-Game Slide

In speaking with the media on Tuesday, two players recognized as leaders on the Cincinnati Bengals told everyone that the team will be fine going forward. Remember a couple of weeks ago when Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers told everyone to "R-E-L-A-X"? A couple of the longest-tenured players on the Cincinnati Bengals' roster are doing the same. With fans in full-panic mode and media members dissecting the issues with the club in their recent 0-2-1 skid, team captains Andrew Whitworth and Domata Peko told everyone to take a deep breath. "It's not the end of the world, guys," said...

VIDEO: A.J. Green Talks About Team, Foot Injury On "Dan Patrick Show"

Bengals star receiver A.J. Green has had a couple of good games this year, but has also missed time because of a toe/foot issue. Green appeared on "The Dan Patrick Show" to talk about the state of the Bengals and his injury status. It's been a frustrating beginning of the year for Pro Bowl receiver, A.J. Green. After having a monster game in the season opener against the Ravens, which included the game-winning touchdown, he has battled a nagging foot/toe injury. It's been so nagging that it's forced Green to miss two full games and basically another against the Falcons when the issue flared...
