 Latest Bengals Player Notes
Nov 20 2017 - Joe Mixon
  RB Joe Mixon carried 20 times and was held to 49 yards, an average of 2.5 yards per carry. Overall, Cincinnati also had 49 yards on the ground, below its league-low average of 70 yards per game. Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis acknowledged the ongoing problems with the rushing attack, but also noted the overall offensive productivity in notching the victory.


Nov 20 2017 - Vincent Rey
  LB Vincent Rey left in the second quarter with a hamstring injury.


Nov 20 2017 - Vontaze Burfict
  LB Vontaze Burfict forced a fumble by running back C.J. Anderson, leading to Andy Dalton's decisive 18-yard touchdown pass to A.J. Green midway through the fourth quarter.


Nov 20 2017 - Dre Kirkpatrick
  CB Dre Kirkpatrick returned an interception 87 yards, before fumbling and recovering at the 1-yard line to set up the first touchdown by the Bengals (4-6). Kirkpatrick was credited with a 101-yard interception return on the stat sheet, but didn't make it into the end zone. Kirkpatrick was about 2 yards deep in the end zone when he picked off Brock Osweiler's pass intended for Cody Latimer, who got jammed in traffic. Dashing down the field the other way with wide receivers Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders in hot pursuit, Kirkpatrick jostled the ball loose inside the 15 as he turned to look over his shoulder. The ball squirted forward and Kirkpatrick recovered it at the 1-yard line, setting up the Bengals' first touchdown. "I have to hold on to the ball." Kirkpatrick said. "I didn't know where they (Thomas and Sanders) were at. It was just an act of the moment. But I have to hold on to the ball, no excuses for it. I have to put it in."


Nov 20 2017 - Andy Dalton
  QB Andy Dalton passed for three touchdowns and the Bengals hung on to beat the Denver Broncos 20-17 Sunday for their first win in the Mile High City in 42 years. "If we would have lost this one, it would have set us even further behind," Dalton said. "Marvin (Lewis, the Bengals head coach) has talked about it, everybody's talked about it. There's a team that's in the position that we're in right now that gets hot every year. We're doing everything we can to make it us." Dalton did his part toward that goal, completing 15 of 25 passes for 154 yards, including scoring passes to A.J. Green, Alex Erickson and tight end Tyler Kroft.


Nov 18 2017 - Pat Sims
  The Cincinnati Bengals waived veteran DT Pat Sims Saturday. Sims, a 10-year veteran, played in eight games this season with seven starts, making 19 tackles. Cincinnati used the open roster spot to promote linebacker Hardy Nickerson from the practice squad.


Nov 18 2017 - Hardy Nickerson
  The Cincinnati Bengals promoted linebacker Hardy Nickerson from their practice squad Saturday and waived veteran defensive tackle Pat Sims in a corresponding move. Cincinnati cut Nickerson, a rookie out of the University of Illinois, on Tuesday and re-signed him to the practice squad Wednesday after he cleared waivers. Nickerson has played in seven games for the Bengals this season, making two tackles on special teams. He also spent Weeks 4 and 5 on the team's practice squad.


Nov 15 2017 - Tyler Boyd
  WR Tyler Boyd has missed four games following a knee injury, but said on Wednesday he's fit to return this Sunday at Denver. Boyd has six catches for 43 yards after coming off a standout rookie campaign. He had two of those six catches against Buffalo on Oct. 8, but injured his knee on the second grab.


Nov 15 2017 - Hardy Nickerson
  LB Hardy Nickerson was signed to the practice squad on Wednesday, a day after being waived. Nickerson played in seven games this season and recorded two tackles (both assists) on special teams. He also spent two games on the team's practice squad.


Nov 15 2017 - *Brian Hill
  RB Brian Hill was signed Tuesday from the Atlanta Falcons' practice squad. Hill, a rookie out of the University of Wyoming, will help fill the Bengals' void at running back after Jeremy Hill was placed on injured reserve. Hill made Atlanta's 53-player roster to start the season and played on special teams in one game. The Falcons waived him and signed him to their practice squad in October. Hill set school career rushing records at Wyoming with 4,287 yards and 35 rushing touchdowns.


Nov 13 2017 - Andy Dalton
  QB Andy Dalton had an up and down afternoon. He missed some throws and had a strip-fumble. But Dalton also passed for 265 yards and two touchdowns including a laser on a slant to A.J. Green that resulted in a 70-yard score that put the Bengals ahead in the fourth quarter. Dalton also had a 37-yard TD pass to Brandon LaFell.


Nov 13 2017 - Jeremy Hill
  RB Jeremy Hill was placed on injured reserve on Saturday and according to head coach Marvin Lewis, has opted for season-ending ankle surgery. Lewis said he was surprised that Hill is opting for surgery since his understanding was that he would wait until after the season to have the procedure.


Nov 13 2017 - Adam Jones
  CB Adam Jones left Sunday's game in the third quarter with a concussion. He suffered the injury while tackling Tennessee QB Marcus Mariota. Jones, who missed time this season with a back ailment, had two tackles on Sunday and a 23-yard punt return.


Nov 13 2017 - Tyler Boyd
  WR Tyler Boyd appeared to be a healthy scratch on Sunday as rookie John Ross got the start. Boyd had returned to practice after suffering a knee injury five weeks ago. Boyd was coming off a standout rookie season, but has only six catches for 43 yards and has been active for only three games.


Nov 13 2017 - Randy Bullock
  K Randy Bullock's missed extra point following the Bengals' first touchdown ultimately meant the Bengals needed a touchdown to win on their final drive rather than a field goal to tie.


Nov 13 2017 - John Ross
  WR John Ross has gotten few chances to showcase his skills in the NFL. He has squandered those few. In a loss to the Houston Texans in Week 2, Ross fumbled after gaining 12 yards on an end-around, his first career touch. On Sunday, Ross pulled up on his route only to see Andy Dalton send a deep ball his way with nobody there. Ross has played sparingly since coming back from a knee injury two weeks ago and was a healthy inactive last week.


Nov 13 2017 - Vontaze Burfict
  LB Vontaze Burfict is being provoked by NFL officials, according to a report by ESPN's Adam Schefter who cited one of Burfict's teammates as the source. The unnamed Bengals player said he heard officials cursing at Burfict on multiple occasions. With 5:12 left in the first half of Sunday's 24-20 loss to the Tennessee Titans, Burfict was ejected from the game by referee Jeff Triplette after Burfict made contact with a game official.


Nov 13 2017 - Adam Jones
  CB Adam Jones was ruled out with a concussion after the third quarter Sunday.


Nov 13 2017 - Brandon LaFell
  WR Brandon LaFell had six receptions for 95 yards and a touchdown vs. Tennessee.


Nov 13 2017 - Vontaze Burfict
  LB linebacker Vontaze Burfict was called for two personal fouls, earning an ejection for contacting an official after Titans QB Marcus Mariota scrambled 8 yards to the 1-yard line. It was the first ejection in the career of Burfict, who was suspended for the season's first three games after repeated rules violations.


Nov 13 2017 - A.J. Green
  WR A.J. Green took a short pass from Andy Dalton and turned it into a 70-yard touchdown, breaking a tackle around the Bengals' 40 and then steaming into the end zone.


Nov 11 2017 - Marshall Koehn
  The Cincinnati Bengals waived K Marshall Koehn because Randy Bullock appears healthy enough to kick against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.


Nov 11 2017 - Jeremy Hill
  The Cincinnati Bengals placed RB Jeremy Hill on season-ending injured reserve Saturday with an ankle injury. Hill tweaked an ankle in last Saturday's walkthrough and did not practice during the week ahead of Sunday's game against the Tennessee Titans. Hill's career in Cincinnati is likely over as he will be an unrestricted free agent after the season. His role was reduced in 2017 after the team drafted rookie Joe Mixon in the second round.


Nov 9 2017 - A.J. Green
  WR A.J. Green said on Thursday that he does not plan to appeal the reported $42,000 fine he received from the NFL for punching Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey. The fine was the second in the career of the Pro Bowl wideout, who was docked $5,787 for kicking a ball into the stands after scoring a touchdown in 2015. Sunday's fireworks began late in the second quarter as Ramsey shoved Green to the ground after the whistle blew on a 1-yard run by Cincinnati rookie running back Joe Mixon. Green erupted, grabbed Ramsey by the neck from behind and slammed him to the ground. The 29-year-old then delivered several punches to Ramsey until a group of players jumped into the fray.


Nov 8 2017 - Scott Orndoff
  TE Scott Orndoff was released from the practice squad. Orndoff, a rookie from the University of Pittsburgh, had signed to the Bengals' practice squad on Oct. 16. He had originally signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers as a college free agent and spent time in the preseason with both the Steelers and the Detroit Lions.


Nov 8 2017 - Jake Fisher
  OT Jake Fisher was placed on the Bengals' non-football illness list Wednesday. Fisher exited Sunday's 23-7 loss to the Jaguars with an illness that landed him in the hospital.


Nov 8 2017 - Eric Winston
  OT Eric Winston was re-signed by the Bengals to a one-year deal Wednesday. Winston, who also serves as president of the NFL Players Association, was released by the club in September. He started six games for Cincinnati over the last three seasons.


Nov 6 2017 - John Ross
  WR John Ross' status for this week's game at Tennessee was again a topic of discussion on Monday. Ross, who has played sparingly since coming back from a knee injury two weeks ago, was a healthy inactive on Sunday. "Again, John has had three weeks of practice," said head coach Marvin Lewis. "Let's get him comfortable doing what he's doing. When he's playing confident, he'll play fast."


Nov 6 2017 - Jake Fisher
  RT Jake Fisher left Sunday's game after two possessions due to an unspecified illness that required treatment at the hospital. Head coach Marvin Lewis was coy about Fisher's condition on Monday. "It's not as serious as I would think it is, but it took him out of the game yesterday," Lewis said.


Nov 6 2017 - Jeremy Hill
  RB Jeremy Hill tweaked his ankle on Saturday and was inactive for Sunday's game. Rookie Joe Mixon started. Hill has rushed for 116 yards on 37 carries with no TDs through eight games.


Nov 5 2017 - A.J. Green
  WR A.J. Green and Jacksonville CB Jalen Ramsey were both ejected for fighting during the Jaguars' 23-7 win on Sunday at EverBank Field.The incident occurred late in the second quarter. The two could clearly be seen talking to each other throughout the game. The first visible sign was after Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton missed Green deep downfield after he beat Ramsey. Dalton threw the ball wide and out of bounds. Ramsey talked to Green and to Cincinnati's bench after the play. Eventually, tensions hit a boiling point. Ramsey shoved Green to the ground after the whistle blew on a 1-yard run by Cincinnati running back Joe Mixon. Green erupted. He grabbed Ramsey by the neck from behind and slammed him to the ground. Green then delivered several punches to Ramsey until a group of players jumped into the fray. Both benches cleared, and it took several minutes before order was restored. The ejection was the first for Green, now in his seventh season. "As a player, as a man, and a father, that's a reflection of me," Green said. "I should have walked off in that whole situation. I definitely learned from this experience. It's never going to happen again. I regret my actions. ... Whatever the punishment, I accept it. I put myself in that situation."


Nov 4 2017 - Marshall Koehn
  PK kicker Marshall Koehn was signed by the Bengals as insurance on Saturday, not taking a chance for Sunday's road game against the Jacksonville Jaguars with kicker Randy Bullock questionable due to a strained back. Koehn, 25, played in all four of the Vikings' preseason games, converting two of three field goals and five of six extra points. He was waived by the Vikings on final September cuts.


Nov 1 2017 - Tyler Boyd

Nov 1 2017 - Randy Bullock
  K Randy Bullock showed up on Wednesday's injury report with a back issue. He did not participate in practice on Wednesday and is day-to-day. Bullock is 17 of 18 on field goals this season. He is the only kicker currently on the Bengals' roster.


Nov 1 2017 - Michael Johnson
  DE Michael Johnson who injured his back early in last week's game against the Colts and did not practice on Wednesday. His status for Sunday's game at Jacksonville is not certain. Johnson has 16 tackles and three sacks this season.


Nov 1 2017 - Carlos Dunlap
  DE Carlos Dunlap was named AFC defensive player of the week for his performance in last week's win over the Indianapolis Colts. Dunlap had three tackles including a sack against the Colts, as well as the game's decisive play. With the Bengals down 23-17 with just over seven minutes left, Dunlap batted up a pass in the Indianapolis backfield, caught it when it came down, and then outran the pursuing Colts offensive players for a 16-yard interception return for a touchdown and the game's final points in a 24-23 win. It was Dunlap's third career touchdown and his second pick-six.


Oct 30 2017 - Michael Johnson
  DE Michael Johnson left Sunday's game toward the end of the first half with a back injury and did not return. Johnson, who had one tackle before leaving the game, has had back issues in the past.


Oct 30 2017 - Adam Jones
  CB Adam Jones was active on Sunday after missing one game with a back injury, described as a transverse process fracture. It was the first game he has missed this season. Jones injured his back during the Buffalo game on Oct. 8 and was a limited participant in practice last week. Jones split time at right corner with William Jackson III on Sunday.


Oct 29 2017 - John Ross
  WR John Ross, the ninth overall pick in last year's draft, was active after missing four games with a knee injury. He did not have a catch, and was targeted just once.

  WR A.J. Green had his fourth touchdown reception of the season Sunday. The Colts held Green to just three catches for 27 yards.


Oct 29 2017 - Carlos Dunlap
  DE Carlos Dunlap swatted Jacoby Brissett's pass in the air, then caught it and raced 16 yards for the go-ahead score Sunday. Dunlap was mobbed by several teammates in the back of the end zone. It was Dunlap's third career touchdown, and first interception return touchdown since 2012. "When I see an opportunity to get my hands up and get them on the ball, I want to capitalize," Dunlap said. "(Brissett) is known for holding on to the ball and not taking sacks. I just saw an opportunity and jumped on it."


Oct 25 2017 - Adam Jones
  CB Adam Jones practiced on Wednesday on a limited basis, just as he did last week but was then inactive for the game at Pittsburgh. Jones injured his back against the Buffalo Bills on October 8.


Oct 25 2017 - John Ross
  WR John Ross was drafted to give the Bengals speed on the outside and a downfield threat to compliment A.J. Green. Ross has played in only one game due to a knee injury and hasn't practiced nearly enough to get in the flow of the offense after missing most of the preseason with a shoulder injury. "When he's healthy, we'll find ways to use him," quarterback Andy Dalton said. Ross was a full participant in practice on Wednesday, an encouraging sign for his availability Sunday vs. Indianapolis.


Oct 25 2017 - Andy Dalton
  QB Andy Dalton's fourth-down throwaway in the fourth quarter of Sunday's 29-14 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers has been fodder for conversation throughout the week. Even though the score at that point was out of reach, seeing the Bengals quarterback throw a ball away on fourth down without targeting a receiver open or not down the field was unusual. Following the game, head coach Marvin Lewis said the receivers need to do a better job of getting open on the play. On Tuesday night during the live talk show "Beyond the Stripes" with Cincinnati Enquirer reporters, Dalton took the blame. "At that point in the game you have to give somebody a chance," Dalton said, with fans in attendance. "I didn't do that. It wasn't like I was standing there wide open, I was about to get hit anyway. But I should have given somebody a chance to make the play."


Oct 23 2017 - John Ross
  WR John Ross was inactive for the fifth time in six games on Sunday with a knee injury that has limited him to one touch through the first seven weeks of his rookie season. On Monday, head coach Marvin Lewis would not offer any prognostication on when Ross might return. Ross practiced last week, but was limited. "When John Ross is suited up, he'll be out there and suited up," Lewis said.


Oct 23 2017 - William Jackson
  CB William Jackson III started at right cornerback in place of the injured Adam Jones and helped hold the Steelers' Antonio Brown to one catch for 19 yards in the second half. Jackson had one tackle and two passes defensed. "We've got to keep getting better," said head coach Marvin Lewis of Jackson. "There were some positives."


Oct 23 2017 - Adam Jones
  CB Adam Jones was inactive on Sunday due to a back injury. It was the first game he has missed this season. Jones injured his back during the Buffalo game on Oct. 8 and was a limited participant in practice last week. Head coach Marvin Lewis did not address Jones' status on Monday for this week's game against Indianapolis.


Oct 23 2017 - Vontaze Burfict
  LB Vontaze Burfict was involved in a skirmish with a Pittsburgh Steelers player. On the first play of Sunday's game at Heinz Field -- a 29-14 Steelers' win - Burfict appeared to kick the facemask of Steelers fullback Roosevelt Nix who was blocking him on a short gain by Le'Veon Bell. Nix pushed Burfict off Bell, the kick followed. It wasn't among Burfict's most egregious actions, but it prompted Bell to tweet "man dude gotta go man ... that's not football AT ALL!!" The Cincinnati Enquirer reported on Monday that Burfict will not be suspended, but the play would be reviewed by the league. Burfict was suspended the first three games of the season for an illegal hit during the preseason. He's considered a repeat offender of player safety violations.
