The Cincinnati Bengals are heading into a pivot-point season for the franchise. They finally fired longtime coach Marvin Lewis after 16 seasons, and are transitioning into the first year of the Zac Taylor era. The Bengals were plagued by injuries last year, and Tyler Eifert was part of that story.

Tyler Eifert and Ryan Glasgow give positive injury updates

Two players the Bengals lost early in their 2018 season look like they should be ready to hit the ground running with the new coaching staff. Injuries hit all over the Bengals’ roster during all parts of the 2018 season. A total of seven new starters took the field in their Week 17 loss to the Steelers, but the season-long misfortune wasn’t enough to keep Mike Brown from moving on from Marvin Lewis as the head coach and hiring Zac Taylor. Tight end Tyler Eifert and defensive tackle Ryan Glasgow accounted for two spots on last year’s Injured Reserve list, but Taylor got some good...

Bengals plan to re-evaluate Rodney Anderson’s health at training camp

Don’t expect the talented Anderson to receive a handoff for a while. The Bengals have dealt with injuries hindering their previous two first-round picks. Both John Ross and Billy Price had upper body ailments prevent them from fully completing their first offseason in a healthy state. Rodney Anderson wasn’t the Bengals’ latest first-round pick, but had he not gotten injured last season, he may’ve been someone’s. Anderson was drafted with the Bengals’ third sixth-round pick in last month’s NFL Draft, and he has been sidelined ever since he tore his ACL last September. The...

Green is scheduled to be healthy and ready for training camp per Adam Schefter. If Boyd can repeat his 2018 success […] Cincinnati Bengals: Why Tyler Boyd Should Help Elevate A.J.

Film Room: Rodney Anderson’s all-around ability is worth the risk

The Bengals’ third sixth-round pick comes with plenty of durability concerns, but Anderson brings an identical skillset to that of Joe Mixon. After rushing for 1,161 yards and 13 touchdowns in 2017, Rodney Anderson’s 2018 season was abruptly cut short, as was his right ACL in Oklahoma’s second game. It was Anderson’s third season-ending injury in his four years with the Sooners and the nail in the coffin for his aspirations of becoming an early draft pick. Injuries have unfortunately defined Anderson’s profile, but when healthy, he’s an extremely impressive back. He has speed...

Plan is for Bengals’ CB Darquze Dennard to return from surgery in June

When the Bengals re-signed cornerback Darqueze Dennard in March, they didn’t know that he might be having arthroscopic surgery on his knee, but that’s just how these things go sometimes. Geoff Hobson of the team’s website reports that the Bengals knew that a scope was a possibility for the 2014 first-round pick when they agreed on a new […] The post Plan is for Bengals’ CB Darquze Dennard to return from surgery in June appeared first on ClutchPoints.

Bengals receiver John Ross preparing for big leap in his third season

Though the Bengals didn’t use one of their 10 selections on a wide receiver in the draft, John Ross knows that he still has a lot to prove in 2019. Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver John Ross has had one of the oddest NFL career arcs in recent memory. After making a name for himself as the NFL Combine record-setter in the 40-yard dash and being selected No. 9 overall, Ross’ pro career has since been filled with frustration. Whether it was because of injuries, simple mistakes that weren’t part of his college tape and/or his seemingly endless stint in Marvin Lewis’ doghouse, the...

PFF lists Jonah Williams as a steal of the draft

Williams was PFF’s No. 4 overall player. The Bengals and the first round of the NFL Draft currently have a volatile relationship to put it mildly. A.J. Green and William Jackson have both turned out to be great picks, and every Round 1 pick between and after them can be classified from just decent to dreadful. Be it due to injuries or a mistake in value, the highest investments the Bengals have made in the draft have yielded mostly mixed results. Jonah Williams is here to buck that trend. Widely regarded as the best offensive tackle in this draft class, Williams became the obvious pick...

NFL exec compares Rodney Anderson to David Johnson

The exec added that Anderson “can be the best back in this draft when he’s healthy.” By all accounts, the Bengals had a very good showing in the 2019 NFL Draft, and a big part of that was how well they did on Day 3. One of the picks made during the final day of the draft was Oklahoma Sooners running back Rodney Anderson in Round 6. When healthy, Anderson was a tremendous talent that had early Day 2 potential in the draft. However, multiple season-ending injuries in college led to Anderson taking a fall all the way to Round 6 before Cincinnati scooped him up. Even so, Anderson has been...

Rodney Anderson viewed as Bengals’ best value pick

An extensive history of injuries dropped Anderson out of the top-200 picks in the NFL Draft. An impressive blend of size and playmaking ability can make him one of the best selections from this year’s class. Starting with five picks, going to six picks, and ending up with three picks, the Bengals had an unusual amount of opportunity to work with in the sixth round of this year’s NFL Draft. With their first two picks in the round, they addressed their third running back opening with Texas A&M’s Trayveon Williams and the backup MIKE linebacker spot with Auburn’s Deshaun Davis. Two...

Bengals waive Adolphus Washington

The Bengals trim their roster ahead of the NFL Draft. The Cincinnati Bengals are making moves ahead of the 2019 NFL Draft. On Tuesday, the team waived reserve defensive tackle Adolphus Washington. The Bengals had signed Washington, a fourth-year player in 2019, off the Dallas Cowboys’ practice squad on Sept. 26 last season. The former Ohio State Buckeyes defender played in four games and totaled six tackles and a sack before landing on injured reserve with a knee injury on Nov. 23. It seems odd the Bengals would make this move ahead of the draft, but it makes sense if the team thinks...
