The Bengals wide receivers and tight ends combined for just seven catches and 75 yards in the team's 26-10 Wild Card loss to the Colts, with wide receiver Mohamed Sanu recording three catches for 31 yards.

With top wideout A.J. Green inactive Sunday, Sanu was the only Bengals receiver to make a catch in the game, racking up his three receptions on seven targets. Brandon Tate was targeted five times, Cobi Hamilton saw two targets and Greg Little was targeted once, but none of the three managed to record a catch.

Tight end Kevin Brock drew the start in place of Jermaine Gresham and caught just one pass for seven years. Rookie tight end Ryan Hewitt caught three of his five targets for 37 yards. Nobody on the Bengals was able to crack 50 receiving yards, with running back Giovani Bernard leading the way with 46 yards on eight receptions.

Jeremy Hill
News
Bengals running back Jeremy Hill figures to be the bell cow in 2015, garnering 15-20 touches per game, but running back Giovani Bernard won't be an afterthought, reports Geoff Hobson of the team's offiicial website. 

"Bernard is still going to get a lot of key touches as the change-of-pace guy," Hobson wrote, projecting Bernard with 8-11 touches per game. "I think [OC] Hue [Jackson] uses him a lot more in the pass game this year. With [tight end Jermaine] Gresham expected to be gone, I'm going to write in Gio for 60 catches."

It's not a stretch, as Bernard caught 56 passes as a rookie, then 43 in 13 games last year. He had a touchdown grab in each of the last two regular-season games and was Cincy's best receiver down the stretch, per Hobson.
