  • The Bengals hope to have Bernard (knee) available early in the 2017 season, the team's official website reports. Bernard is making good progress in his recovery from a torn ACL suffered in Week 10, with the Bengals thus hoping to have him back in some capacity for at least a portion of training camp. Week 1 is an ambitious but realistic target, though expectations should probably be tempered at this early stage of the rehab process. With Bernard no sure thing to be ready by Week 1 and Rex Burkhead testing the waters of free agency, Cincinnati is taking a long look at the running backs available in the draft. Jeremy Hill is entering the final year of his rookie contract, coming off back-to-back seasons in which he fell shy of four yards per carry.

  • Bengals' Giovani Bernard: Making impressive progress
    By RotoWire Staff

    Bernard (knee) is making great progress in his rehabilitation from last season's torn ACL and anticipated to return some time during training camp, Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports. Bernard went down in a November game against the Bills, ending his season after 10 games played. Since then, Bernard has drawn consistently positive updates regarding his recovery, which has raised optimism that he'll re-enter the fold before the 2017 regular season kicks off. While that would likely allow him to avoid Cincinnati's PUP list, which would rule him out for the first six weeks of the campaign, Bernard is projected to maybe still need a game or two before he's fully ready to play. Overall, the possibility of missing games still exists, but Bernard is at least doing the best he can in ensuring any absence is minimized.

  • Bernard (knee) will miss organized team activities this spring and potentially the start of training camp, but there's optimism that he'll be ready for the 2017 season opener, Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports. Bernard was placed on injured reserve after tearing his ACL in Cincinnati's Week 10 game against the Bills in November. While that resulted in him having surgery and missing the final six games of this season, Bernard was back in the Bengals weight room last week working on his recovery. Given the timetable of his rehabilitation, Bernard was never expected to be ready to participate in spring workouts, but it's good to hear a return by the time the 2017 regular season rolls around isn't out of the question. Knowing that, it'll be important to track Bernard's progress over the coming months before shaping expectations of him for next season.

  • Bengals' Giovani Bernard: Placed on IR
    By RotoWire Staff

    Bernard (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday. Bernard's season ends after he tore his ACL in Sunday's loss to the Bills. In 10 games, he racked up 337 yards on 91 attempts, finding the end zone twice. He also recorded 39 receptions for 336 yards and a touchdown. It's been a dismal season for the Bengals thus far, as they head into Week 12 without Bernard and their biggest offensive weapon, A.J. Green (hamstring). Jeremy Hill, who has split carries with Bernard all season, will now take on the role of true No. 1 back. Look for Rex Burkhead to assume the role of the No. 2 back as he remains the only other healthy option on the active roster.
