Hue Jackson can't stop gushing about Gio Bernard
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/30/14) New Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson continues to describe running back Giovani Bernard in glowing terms. "He’s had an outstanding camp," Jackson told CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. "He’s so explosive, he can catch the ball, he’s a tough son of a gun. He protects. He blocks."
Bengals to 'expand portfolio' of Giovani Bernard
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/28/14) The Bengals want to find different ways to get the ball to running back Giovani Bernard, reports ESPN.com.

"I don't know if it's the workload that's going to get more, it's more the type of plays that we're going to run with him in the game," running backs coach Kyle Caskey told the website. "We're going to expand his portfolio of plays and find different ways to get the ball in his hands in space. You get the ball in Gio's hands in space, he's dangerous."

Cincy could line up Bernard as an outside or slot receiver -- anything to get him in space.

"You don't necessarily have to hand it off and say, 'Hey, Gio got 260 touches last year out of the backfield.' Maybe he gets 260 to 300 touches but he gets them some other way," Caskey said. "Maybe he gets 200 out of the backfield but he catches 100 passes or however it is. We'll find a way to get the ball to him."

300-plus touches projected for Giovani Bernard
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/16/14) On the heels of a report from the Bengals' website saying Giovani Bernard should receive 230 carries, the Cincinnati Enquirer seconded that notion, stating Bernard will be featured "early and often. His expansion as a receiver will only help create a scenario where he can crack 70 receptions and 230 carries for 300-plus total touches. Buckle up."

Bernard ran 170 times as a rookie and caught 56 passes.

Giovani Bernard projected to get 230 carries
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/15/14) The Bengals' official website expects second-year running back Giovani Bernard to receive 230 carries, 60 more than he had last year. That computes to 14.4 carries per game.

The Bengals don't want to give Bernard more than that because "they want to protect him as well as use him in the passing game," the report said. Bernard had 15 carries once as a rookie, 14 twice and 13 three times.

The website predicts the Bengals will run the ball about 50 more times under new coordinator Hue Jackson.

Of the remaining 230 to 250 carries available, the website expects rookie Jeremy Hill to get the bulk, with the rest going to BenJarvus Green-Ellis, Rex Burkhead or whoever emerges as the No. 3 back.

Giovani Bernard to do more with his hands?
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/23/14) The Bengals have plans to use Giovani Bernard as a receiver in addition to his work as a running back, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported. Bernard ability to make plays in the open field have the coaching staff thinking creatively on how to use him. 

"We want to do more with him because he can do that," running backs coach Kyle Caskey said. "It's not just put him in the slot. We want him everywhere on the field. Make people guess where's he at. You have to make a decision to either play the run or play the pass. What do you do when he's on the field? He's a lot like Reggie Bush where you have to be aware at all times."

Bernard thinks it makes sense. 

"Think about it; if you're in the backfield you have to run five yards or six and a half or seven to get to the line of scrimmage and then you've got to push up five more yards, you've got to get through all of the crowd and you've got to check all of the protections," he said. "So it's almost a lot easier when you're on the slot where all you have to do is just run five yards to get to your spot."

Bernard had 56 catches last year but many of them came on plays where he lined up in the backfield. Per ProFootballFocus.com, Bernard lined up as a receiver just 42 times and sparingly catches from those spots. He totaled just over 1,200 yards and eight touchdowns last year.
