If you really want to bring a tear to your eye go find "Missing Rings - The 88' Bengals." If you're not misty eyed by the end of that one you're not a real Bengal fan.... :cry:

Giovani Bernard may not be ready for Week One
Posted by Josh Alper on June 12, 2017

The Bengals drafted running back Joe Mixon in the second round of this year’s draft in a move that’s sure to impact Giovani Bernard’s role on the team moving forward.

Bernard is going to have to get healthy enough to start playing in games before we’ll find out how much that role will change, however. Bernard tore his ACL last season and has not yet been cleared for a full return to football activities.

Geoff Hobson of the team’s website reports that Bernard should avoid going on the physically unable to perform list to start the season, but suggests that he may not make it back for the first game of the year. Hobson writes that the team likely doesn’t “want to rush him back into the first couple of regular-season games” and that Mixon would likely fill any third down needs until Bernard gets back.

There’s still a lot of time to go before any decisions need to be made on that front, but an impressive summer for Mixon would only make it easier for the Bengals to take their time getting Bernard back up to full speed.

Shoulder injury could keep John Ross out of start of training camp
Posted by Michael David Smith on June 13, 2017

Bengals rookie receiver John Ross broke the 40-yard dash record at the Scouting Combine while dealing with a shoulder injury that required surgery after the Combine. That surgery may require Ross to miss the start of training camp.

According to, Ross won’t be on the field “until early August or so.” The Bengals’ first training camp practice is July 29.

Ross’s 4.22-second 40-yard dash has created a lot of excitement around him, but he was viewed as a first-round prospect even before the Combine, based on his performance on the field in college at Washington.

The Bengals, however, will have to wait just a little while longer before they see him at full go on the practice field.
