Camp week

Postby stripesincarolina » May 23rd, 2017, 9:33 am

Finally, some football to discuss. Voluntary camp opens this week but I think we can figure that everyone will show unless there is an excused absence. Looking forward to hearing more about the defense this week. Good write up on the dotcom last night about the looming camp battles at each position.

Roughly 11 weeks until preseason!

The Cincinnati Bengals hit the practice field for the first time this offseason on Tuesday. There, a few players were surprisingly rehabbing injuries while other players who ended the season injured were happily practicing.

Here are seven things we learned from Day 1 of OTAs.

1. Clint Boling and George Iloka are doing well in their shoulder surgery recoveries

Boling had shoulder surgery in Week 17 of the 2016 season after originally suffering an injury in Week 4, which he played through up until Week 16. Iloka never had a know shoulder injury, but also had shoulder surgery following the completion of the season. On Tuesday, both were practicing with the Bengals, though, not at 100 percent. This round of OTAs doesn’t feature any contact in practice, but, the players are still out there, running around and attempting to make plays. It’s great news that both Boling and Iloka were able to participate, even if in limited fashion. Boling is expected to take on a bigger leadership role with Andrew Whitworth and Kevin Zeitler gone and it’s important for him to be out there, helping lead the young players.

2. Injured rookies

Rookie offensive lineman and fifth round pick J.J. Dielman is recovering from a foot injury and didn't participate in team drills on Tuesday. Dielman's injury occurred five games into the 2016 college season and caused him to miss out on Combine drills, too. Additionally, rookie sixth round pick Brandon Wilson was seen on the rehab field, though he did participate in drills with his fellow defensive backs.

First round pick John Ross is recovering from shoulder surgery. But, Ross isn’t present in Cincinnati as he awaits Washington’s graduation — on June 10 — before he can participate in team activities. It’s a strange and unfortunate rule that’s keeping Ross away from his new teammates. Still, he’s not expected to be fully recovered from his surgery until July.

On a related note, the rookies volunteered at the Ronald McDonald House on Tuesday night. Ross Tweeted that he was disappointed to have missed the opportunity, but, the Tweet has since been deleted.

3. Kickers will rotate practicing

According to Local12, the Bengals will be using only two of their three kickers per day in practice and will rotate the three on a daily basis. On Tuesday, fifth round rookie Jake Elliott sat out while veteran Randy Bullock and first year player Jonathan Brown took turns kicking field goals. Per Local12, Brown, a former soccer player, missed two of his four field goal attempts from 39 yards out and 43 yards out, while Bullock missed one of his four, a 43-yard attempt.

I wonder what these guys did for the rest of the nearly two hour practice if they only kicked four field goals each.

4. A.J. Green experienced a groin injury

Iloka always goes hard in practice and while trying to snatch away a pass from Green, the Bengals' safety accidentally hit Green in the groin area. Green took a few minutes off the field, but, returned shortly after.

Ouch.

5. Rehab field featured some surprises

On the rehab field were tight end Tyler Eifert and running back Giovani Bernard. But, both were expected to be there as they recover from back and ACL injuries, respectively. Unexpected players rehabbing injuries were C.J. Uzomah (unknown injury) and Wilson (as mentioned above, who also has an unknown injury). Dre Kirkpatrick also experienced a “freak accident” in recent weeks, which caused him to fracture a bone in his hand. More information wasn’t divulged and Marvin Lewis didn’t offer a timetable for his return. Though, he’s only expected to miss a few weeks and should be good to go for training camp.

6. 2 coaching interns

The Bengals have two coaching interns in OTAs this week. Former NFL linebacker Aaron Curry, who played for the Seahawks and Raiders is one of them. He is the defensive line coach at University of North Carolina - Charlotte and is helping with the defensive line during OTAs. The other intern is Roderick Plummer, who is the linebackers coach and special teams coordinator at Holy Cross. He'll be helping out with the Bengals' running backs and special teams unit. Plumer has also coached at UMass, Cornell, Florida A&M, Hampton and James Madison, among other colleges.

7. Andre Smith takes on the right guard job

Though offensive lineman don’t do all that much in OTAs, Smith took on the right guard role in practice with the starters. This year’s starting line figures to be Cedric Ogbuehi at left tackle, Boling at left guard, Russell Bodine at center, Smith at right guard and Jake Fisher at right tackle. It will take some impressive play from the backups for a change to be made to that situation. But, it’s entirely possible as guys like T.J. Johnson, Christian Westerman and Alex Redmond (among others) push for playing time.

If memory serves, it was mentioned back when he was re-signed it was for the Guard position left open by the departure of Zeitler...

No I don't believe so, I suggested moving him to guard and then was promptly told he's got no experience there so why would we put him there. Or at least that's how I remember it.

You're OSF points privileges are revoked.

Garrett Bolles meets with Bengals and Bills

Posted by Josh Alper on April 14, 2017, 12:20 PM EDT

The Bengals drafted a pair of offensive tackles in the first two rounds of the 2015 draft and they are spending time on Friday with one of the top tackle prospects in this year’s draft class.

Adam Caplan of ESPN reports that the Bengals are meeting with Utah tackle Garrett Bolles. Bolles is one of the 22 players expected to attend the draft later this month.

In addition to the 2015 draft picks — Cedric Ogbuehi and Jake Fisher — the Bengals also re-signed Andre Smith as a free agent, but he’s expected to play guard in his second tour in Cincinnati. That could change, of course, and the addition of Bolles or any other tackle would signal that the team hasn’t settled on a new alignment in the wake of losing left tackle Andrew Whitworth and right guard Kevin Zeitler as free agents.

Caplan reports that Bolles also met with the Bills on Thursday. They are set with Cordy Glenn at left tackle, but Bolles could give them an upgrade on their current right tackle options.


And this is from Profootballtalk.com from all the way back on March 14th when Sugart*ts was offical re-signed...

Andre Smith returning to Bengals
Posted by Zac Jackson on March 14, 2017, 7:26 PM EDT

Free agent offensive tackle Andre Smith is returning to Cincinnati, ESPN reported.

After one season in Minnesota, Smith will sign a one-year deal with the Bengals. He played his first seven seasons in Cincinnati after signing with the Vikings last March.

Smith, 30, was limited to four games last season due to an arm injury, and the Bengals have snaps waiting for him after losing offensive linemen Andrew Whitworth and Kevin Zeitler in free agency last week. Smith was the Bengals’ starting right tackle when healthy for six seasons but is expected to fill the Right Guard spot recently vacated by the departure of Zeitler to the Browns. The Bengals are trying to find a full-time spot at Right Tackle for third-year player Eric Fisher.

Smith had also taken a free-agent visit to Buffalo.

Enough with the OSF points seriously! What are we 12? I know I mentioned it somewhere and I know I was told that he's not going to be moved to guard because he's always been a tackle, and I don't need you're smart ass to tell me if I did it or not!
