Tyler Boyd gives an injury update on his knee

Boyd is nearing the end of a recovery that’s taken over a month. It’s safe to say the MCL injury Tyler Boyd suffered late last season was a little more serious than originally thought. The injury came in Week 15 in a win over the Raiders, the last time Cincinnati would taste victory in 2018. It was also the game in which Boyd reached 1,000 yards receiving for the first time in his career before hurting his right knee late in the first half. Initially, it was believed to be a minor MCL sprain that wouldn’t sideline him long, though the Bengals obviously weren’t going to bring him...


Bengals TE Tyler Eifert says ‘no question’ he’ll get back to being player he was

Bengals fire Jim Haslett, per report

This was an easy call. The Bengals’ purge of the Marvin Lewis regime continues with a third reported coach being let go. According to NFL Network reporter Tom Pelissero, linebackers coach Jim Haslett is the latest coach to get a pink slip, joining running backs coach Kyle Caskey and tight ends coach Jonathan Hayes. While Hayes and Caskey had strong cases to remain on staff, cutting Haslett was as easy of a call as Cincinnati had other than to fire Lewis. The linebacking group has been simply horrific over the last two years. While injuries were a big factor, the decline of Vontaze...

Steelers owner Art Rooney II open to trading WR Antonio Brown

Rooney added that it’s hard to see Brown remaining with the Steelers. The Steelers’ 2018 season ended pretty bleakly, and their offseason has seen things only get worse. Wide receiver Antonio Brown missed their season finale against the Bengals supposedly because of a knee injury, but he was actually benched for missing practices during the previous week due to a fallout between him and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. Brown then reportedly requested a trade from the team, and he may just get his wish. Steelers’ owner Art Rooney II said in an interview with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette...

Bengals injury recap: Cincinnati closes out 2018 with a few more additions to their injury list

The season is over, but the Bengals couldn’t avoid escaping Pittsburgh healthy. The Bengals lost 16-13 to the Steelers in their season finale to finish with a record of 6-10. They also finish with an NFL-leading 18 players on injured reserve and suffered a couple more injuries in their final bout. Considering this is the end of the year, it should also be pointed out that the Bengals struggles started before their injured reserve looked like a grocery list. This was a team that didn’t have nearly enough depth, and the coaching staff wasn’t good enough to get anything out of their...

Bengals have a Marvin Lewis problem

The Cincinnati Bengals season is over. They have much work to do before the 2019 season. Starting with Marvin Lewis. It’s over. Mercifully. The 2018 season has ended and what painfully dull experience it was. What began as a surprising 4-1 start led to nine losses in the final 11 games, impacted by a series of injuries on offense and a fired coordinator on defense. From quarterback Andy Dalton, tight end Tyler Eifert, and wide receivers A.J. Green and Tyler Boyd, the Bengals offense was decimated by season-ending injuries with few “next man up” options. Surprisingly, it was the...

Bengals WR Cody Core leaves Steelers game with ugly injury

Cody Core suffers an injury to his arm, which will likely keep him out the rest of the game. It didn’t take long for the Bengals to lose another player to a major injury. In their matchup with the Steelers, Cody Core exited the game late in the first quarter. It was an absolutely brutal looking injury for Core, who has been thrust into the starting lineup due to injuries to guys like A.J. Green and Tyler Boyd already. Core’s injury came as he landed very ugly on a catch that was broken up on the sideline. It is hard to imagine with the way that he went down that he will be able to...
