Ever since the Bengals gathered in the spring there has been a buzz about their intriguing class of rookie tight ends. They're still buzzing after the full pads came out Monday...It looks like Michael Johnson will miss "a few" weeks...Check out Player of the Day...
Cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick, one of the more gregarious Bengals, has been running first team with the chatty Adam Jones in the first three noisy practices of this training camp on a very energetic corner. But he wants a lot more than that. Like a Captain’s jersey.
It looks like the Bengals dodged disaster Sunday when Michael Johnson hurt his knee...The defense had its way when they donned shoulder pads and the offense looks for pay back in a 3 p.m. Monday practice in full pads.
Now with the tackles in the best shape of their careers, all five offensive line starters intact, Jitterbug Giovani Bernard healthy, and Jeremy Hill vowing to become a leader in the Andrew Whitworth mold, the Bengals have the ability to smash their way back to a fifth straight playoff berth as the pads came on for the first time Sunday.
Adam Jones is mentoring as well as playing...Geno Atkins is back to making life miserable for the practice scripters...Check out Player of the Day and Play of the Day...
Remember when the Bengals drafted West Virginia defensive end Will Clarke in the third round in 2014, barely a month after they had lost Michael Johnson to free agency?
Hoard: "During training camp I'm often asked, what player has been the most impressive? In each of the last two years, my answer has been Tyler Eifert."
