Position Listing
 
Cedric Peerman
News
Bengals running back Cedric Peerman is active for Week 1 against the Ravens, after getting through the whole week in practice with a hip injury.
Mike Pollak
News
Bengals defensive back Darqueze Dennard (hip), defensive lineman Margus Hunt (ribs), defensive back Terence Newman (groin), offensive lineman Mike Pollak (knee), offensive lineman Andre Smith (shoulder) and wide receiver James Wright (concussion) are active for Week 2 against Atlanta. They were all listed as probable on Friday's injury report.
Kevin Greene
News
The 49ers made several moves to trim the roster to 75 players Monday.

The team waived quarterback McLeod Bethel-Thompson, safety D.J. Campbell, tight end Kevin Greene, running back Jewel Hampton, punt Colton Schmidt, linebacker Kion Wilson and wide receiver Devon Wylie, while also releasing wide receiver David Reed.

The team placed running back Marcus Lattimore, fullback Trey Millard, cornerback Keith Reaser and guard Brandon Thomas on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury List and linebacker NaVorro Bowman, tight end Garrett Celek and defensive tackle Kaleb Ramsey were placed on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform List. Linebacker Blake Costanzo was released from the Injured Reserve list.

Mohamed Sanu
News
With star wide receiver A.J. Green out for all but the Bengals' first drive of the game Week 2 against the Falcons, Mohamed Sanu took over the highlight reel -- or at least stole a couple frames from running back Giovani Bernard.

His biggest play was a 76-yard catch-and-run when quarterback Andy Dalton found him over the middle on an all-out blitz by the Falcons defense early in the second quarter. It was his first touchdown of the season and one of the Bengals' three on the day. He made his other big play with his arm, taking a pitch from Dalton late in the first quarter and chucking the ball 50 yards downfield to Brandon Tate.

Most of the Bengals' passing game went through Bernard, preventing any wide receiver from getting the majority of the looks, but Sanu led the way in yardage with 84 on three catches. He had four targets.

He'll look to further distinguish himself Week 3 against the Titans.

J.K. Schaffer
News
The Bengals waived linebacker J.K. Schaffer (concussion) and cornerback Lavelle Westbrooks (thumb) with injury designations. Cincy also waived linebacker James Davidson and quarterback Matt Scott to reach the 75-man roster limit.

Domata Peko
News
Bengals nose tackle Domata Peko signed a two-year extension through 2016, according to the team's website. Peko has not missed a start since 2009.

News

Atkins missed the final seven games last year with a torn ACL. He had one tackle in Week 1.

A.J. Green
News
Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green's toe injury is not likely to be a long-term injury, coach Marvin Lewis said Monday.

Green left Week 2 as a result of the injury, but may end up missing just a maximum of one game. NFL.com reported earlier in the day Green is likely to return after the team's Week 4 bye, at the latest. 

Injury
Foot - Left Week 2 vs. Atlanta
Clint Boling
News
The Bengals have moved seven players -- defensive tackle Christo Bilukidi, guard Clint Boling, punter Kevin Huber, receiver Colin Lockett, cornerback Onterio McCalebb, guard Mike Pollak and cornerback Leon Hall to the active roster. They had all previously been on the PUP or NFI lists. 
Colin Lockett
News
The Bengals made a slew of moves Saturday to pare their roster down to the required 53 for the regular season.

Among those moves was the placement of guard Trey Hopkins on the reserve/injured list with a leg issue. Rookie quarterback AJ McCarron was put on the reserve/non-football injury list with a shoulder problem.

Clarke, Johnson and Hawkinson are all healthy scratches.

Brandon Tate
News
Bengals wide receiver Brandon Tate didn't catch a single pass from quarterback Andy Dalton Week 2 against Atlanta, but he did catch one from Mohamed Sanu, who took a pitch from Dalton late in the first quarter and heaved it 50 yards downfield to Tate.

In all, Tate was targeted three times. That was even with A.J. Green missing all but the first series with a toe injury.

They were all listed as probable on Friday's injury report.
Mike Nugent
News
One week after kicking five field goals in six attempts, Bengals kicker Mike Nugent once again had an opportunity to pile up points Week 2 against Atlanta and couldn't take advantage.

He made his first attempt, a 31-yarder in the first quarter, before proceeding to miss attempts attempts of 38, 49 and 55 yards. His misses were all near misses, and coach Marvin Lewis indicated after the game he wouldn't consider making a change.

"I know he'll be better next time out," Lewis said, according to the team's official website. "That's the one good thing about Mike -- he's such a pro. We (had) a bad day, and we lived through it. Next time, I can go back and count on him, like we did a week ago."

Nugent was a perfect 3 for 3 on extra points.

Marvin Jones

Onterio McCalebb
News
The Bengals have waived defensive tackle Christo Bilukidi and signed cornerback Onterio McCalebb off their practice squad.

Bilukidi has limited NFL experience. He has played in 13 games with Oakland and Cincinnati and recorded 10 tackles. McCalebb has yet to take a snap in an NFL game.

Alex Smith
News
Bengals tight end Alex Smith suffered a biceps injury in the first half Week 2 vs. Atlanta and was ruled out for the rest of the game. He did not receive a target in the game.

Smith, who has been getting more playing time with Tyler Eifert sidelined by an elbow injury, didn't have a catch Week 1 at Baltimore either.

Injury
Biceps - IR. Out for season
James Wilder Jr.
News
The Bengals made a slew of moves Saturday to pare their roster down to the required 53 for the regular season.

Among those moves was the placement of guard Trey Hopkins on the reserve/injured list with a leg issue. Rookie quarterback AJ McCarron was put on the reserve/non-football injury list with a shoulder problem.

The Bengals also cut the following offensive players: tackles Dan France and Will Svitek, wide receivers Colin Lockett and Cobi Hamilton, center Trevor Robinson and running backs James Wilder and Nikita Whitlock.

Cornerback Chris Lewis-Harris will begin serving a two-game drug suspension handed dowsn by the league.

Vontaze Burfict
News
Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict was slow walking off the field in the third quarter Week 2 against Atlanta with what at first seemed like a recurrence of the concussion he suffered in Week 1. The Bengals announced he had a stinger, however, and ruled him out for the rest of the game.

Burfict, the league's leading tackler with 171 last season, had four tackles, including two solo, before leaving.

Injury
Neck - Left Week 2 vs. Atlanta
Rex Burkhead
News
The Bengals' list of inactives for Week 2 against the Falcons includes wide receiver Marvin Jones (foot), running back Rex Burkhead (knee), linebacker Sean Porter (hamstring), defensive lineman Will Clarke, offensive lineman T.J. Johnson and offensive lineman Tanner Hawkinson.

Emmanuel Lamur
News
Though Bengals linebacker Emmanuel Lamur didn't quite match the 11 tackles he had in Week 1, he had another strong performance Week 2 against Atlanta, finishing with eight tackles, including five solo.

Lamur missed all of last season with a dislocated shoulder. He entered 2013 with only 19 tackles in his career.

Brandon Thompson
News
Bengals defensive lineman Brandon Thompson hurt his left knee in the first half Week 2 vs. Atlanta and was ruled out for the rest of the game.

Thompson did not contribute statistically before leaving. He had four tackles in Week 1.

Injury
Knee - Left Week 2 vs. Atlanta
Jeremy Hill
News
Though rookie running back Jeremy Hill was involved in the Bengals offense from the beginning Week 2 against the Falcons, the majority of his work came in garbage time, amounting to 15 carries for 74 yards and a touchdown as well as two catches for 22 yards.

He performed well as a change-of-pace option for Giovani Bernard in the first half, rushing five times for 39 yards, but his other 10 carries, including his 1-yard touchdown run, came with the Bengals already leading by multiple touchdowns in the second half.

Bernard nearly doubled his career high with 27 carries on the day, so clearly Hill's bigger-than-expected workload didn't cut into his. The rookie remains more or less just a backup for what figures to be a more challenging matchup Week 3 against the Titans.

Andrew Whitworth
News
The Bengals' Andrew Whitworth moved from left tackle to left guard for the final six games last season, replacing the injured Clint Boling while Anthony Collins stepped in for Whitworth. Although Whitworth excelled inside, he'd prefer to return to left tackle.

“I’m a long, lean lever guy without thick arms or legs. I’m built to play tackle,” Whitworth told the team's website. “I feel like that’s where I’d like to stay. That’s not a firm thing. It’s just what I would prefer.”

Whitworth is signed through 2015.

“I know this is a business and they have to do what they think is best for the future of the team and not for just one or two years,” he siad. “I know I turn the big 33 this year (Dec. 12) …I feel like I can play tackle for a long time.”

Whitworth's future could depend on whether Cincinnati re-signs Collins, a free agent.

Will Clarke
News
The Bengals' list of inactives for Week 2 against the Falcons includes wide receiver Marvin Jones (foot), running back Rex Burkhead (knee), linebacker Sean Porter (hamstring), defensive lineman Will Clarke, offensive lineman T.J. Johnson and offensive lineman Tanner Hawkinson.

Clarke, Johnson and Hawkinson are all healthy scratches.

Devon Still
News
The Bengals added defensive tackle Devon Still to the 53-man roster Wednesday, according to the team's offical website. 
Tyler Eifert
News
The Bengals have placed tight end Tyler Eifert (elbow) on short-term injured reserve Wednesday, according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. Eifert is believed to have suffered a dislocated elbow Week 1.
Injury
Elbow - IR. Eligible to return Week 10 vs. Cleveland
Marquis Flowers
News
As the Bengals prepare to open training camp this week, they placed nine players on the Physically Unable to Perform list and another three on the Non-Football Injury list. All 12 players can come off both lists at any time. 

Defensive tackle Geno Atkins (knee), cornerback Leon Hall (Achilles), guard Clint Boling (knee), linebacker Marquis Flowers (hamstring), punter Kevin Huber (neck), receiver Colin Lockett (hamstring), defensive tackle Zach Minter (back), defensive tackle Devon Still (back) and receiver Ryan Whalen (hamstring) all were placed on PUP. 

In addition to receiver Marvin Jones (ankle), who might not be seriously hurt, the Bengals placed cornerback Onterio McCalebb (ankle) and quarterback AJ McCarron (shoulder) on their NFI list. 

Andy Dalton
News
Of Andy Dalton's 301 passing yards in Week 1, 131 went to A.J. Green. So you'd think the fourth-year quarterback would be in trouble when his Bengals teammate went down with a foot injury on the first drive of the game Week 2 against Atlanta, before he even had a chance to target the star wide receiver.

But that wasn't the case. Against a defense that entered the day ranked 25th against the pass, Dalton completed 15 of 23 passes for 252 yards. He made especially good use of elusive running back Giovani Bernard, twice dumping it off to him for big gains on what appeared to be broken plays. The first went for 24 yards, the second for 46. Both came in the second quarter

Dalton had only one touchdown pass, but it was impressive one. With the Falcons entire front seven bearing down on him on an all-out blitz early in the third quarter, he threw a strike to Mohamed Sanu down the middle of the field, giving the receiver plenty of room to take it all the way for a 76-yard score.

Dalton will look to keep it going, with or without Green, in Week 3, but he'll be in for more of a challenge against a Titans defense that intercepted the Chiefs' Alex Smith three times in Week 1 and allowed 176 yards to the Cowboys' Tony Romo in Week 2.

Marshall Newhouse
News
The Bengals signed offensive tackle Marshall Newhouse on Friday. Newshouse started two of his 14 games played last season with the Packers. He will likely fill in the void left by Anthony Collins, who signed with the Buccaneers this offseason.
Taylor Mays
News
The Bengals re-signed defensive back Taylor Mays Tuesday, according to CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. Financial details of the move are not yet known. 

Mays finished the 2013 season with 19 tackles and one fumble recover in eight games. 

Shawn Williams
News
On Day 3 of the NFL Draft, the Bengals added Georgia safety Shawn Williams, Texas A&M linebacker Sean Porter, Nebraska running back Rex Burkhead and Arkansas wide receiver Cobi Hamilton.
Jermaine Gresham
News
Even with star wide receiver A.J. Green going down in the first series with a foot injury, Bengals tight end Jermaine Gresham was just a peripheral part of the passing game Week 2 against Atlanta. He caught all three balls thrown his way for 25 yards, an improvement over his two-catch, 16-yard performance in Week 1.

He'll look to get more involved Week 3 against the Titans.

Giovani Bernard
News
With star wide receiver A.J. Green pulled with a foot injury on their first drive of the game Week 2 against the Falcons, the Bengals needed a player to step up and carry the mantle offensively. Running back Giovani Bernard was happy to do just that.

The second-year player had a career day, leading the Bengals not only in carries with 27, nearly doubling his career high, but also in catches with five. His 169 total yards (90 rushing, 79 receiving) were also a career high.

Though his lone touchdown came on the ground -- a 4-yard plunge up the middle in the second quarter -- his two biggest plays came through the air. Even better, they were improvised. With a defender hot on his tail early in the second quarter, quarterback Andy Dalton pitched the ball underneath to Bernard, who promptly hurdled a defender for a 24-yard gain. On the very next drive, again with two defenders in his face, Dalton flipped the ball over the line to Bernard, who outran half the Falcons defense for a 46-yard gain.

"He yelled out, `Gio!' and I just opened my eyes," Bernard said. "It's weird. I guess it's a quarterback-running back relationship kind of thing."

Though he wasn't needed as much in the second half, allowing change-of-pace rusher Jeremy Hill to have 15 carries for 74 yards and a touchdown, Bernard gave the Bengals another glimpse of all he can do with the ball in his hands and will look to build on it Week 3 against the Titans.

Dane Sanzenbacher
News
When star wide receiver A.J. Green went down in the first series with a foot injury, Dane Sanzenbacher was one of the Bengals who helped fill the void Week 2 against Atlanta. After going without a target in Week 1, he was targeted four times in this one, catching two passes for 42 yards.

His biggest play was a 26-yard catch-and-run late in the second quarter. The Bengals would go up by two touchdowns shortly after that and rely more on their running game the rest of the way.

Sanzenbacher will look to remain involved Week 3 against the Titans.

AJ McCarron
News
The Bengals made a slew of moves Saturday to pare their roster down to the required 53 for the regular season.

Among those moves was the placement of guard Trey Hopkins on the reserve/injured list with a leg issue. Rookie quarterback AJ McCarron was put on the reserve/non-football injury list with a shoulder problem.

The Bengals also cut the following offensive players: tackles Dan France and Will Svitek, wide receivers Colin Lockett and Cobi Hamilton, center Trevor Robinson and running backs James Wilder and Nikita Whitlock.

Defenders waived by the Bengals include safety Danieal Manning, cornerbacks Onterio McCalebb and Victor Hampton, tackles Devon Still and David King and ends Sam Montgomery and Dontay Moch.

Cornerback Chris Lewis-Harris will begin serving a two-game drug suspension handed dowsn by the league.

Injury
Shoulder - NFI. Eligible to return Week 7 at Indianapolis
Ryan Otten
News
The Bengals placed tight end Alex Smith (biceps) on injured reserve, released tight end Ryan Otten and signed offensive lineman Emmett Cleary to the practice squad.
George Iloka
News
Bengals defensive back George Iloka, who entered the day with just one career interception, tripled that total Week 2 against Atlanta, picking off quarterback Matt Ryan twice in the second half.

Iloka also had a solo tackle.

Adam Jones
News
Fantasy owners might have to wait, potentially a long time, to see large stat contributions from Darqueze Dennard . The fit is pretty good with the Bengals, who have long assembled a cornerback army to help against opposing offenses. But Dennard's rise to the starting lineup is blocked with veterans like Leon Hall, Terence Newman, Adam Jones and Dre Kirkpatrick. The coaches even compared Dennard's game to Hall's, who has been the best Bengals corner for a while.

In time, those guys will clear out and Dennard will play a bunch, but until then his stats won't be great. We'd pass on Dennard in seasonal leagues and would spend only a late-round pick on him in dynasty/keeper formats. He's only worth a late-round pick in rookie-only drafts, too.
