    08/16/16WRBrandon LaFellHandQUESTIONABLELaFell (hand) is expected to get heavy work in Sunday's preseason game against Jacksonville.

    LaFell needs to develop a rapport with quarterback Andy Dalton, and merely needs to get more reps period after missing the first two preseason games. He has fallen behind rookie Tyler Boyd in the battle to be the #2 wide receiver on the Bengals.

    08/15/16DLAndrew BillingsKneeDOUBTFULBillings had surgery to repair a torn mensicus Monday and has been ruled out indefinitely, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

    Billings was carted out of practice after injuring his knee last Wednesday, and is now in danger of losing his rookie season due to injury. After surprisingly sliding to the fourth round of the draft, Billings seemed a solid investment for the Bengals' defensive front, which is also without Brandon Thompson right now while he recovers from last season's torn ACL.

    08/02/16TETyler KroftKneeQUESTIONABLEKroft (knee) participated in some rehab exercises during Wednesday's practice, Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports.

    Kroft originally pegged Week 1 as a target for his return, but given the nature of knee sprains, it wouldn't be surprising if he wasn't ready by then. As a rookie last season, Kroft helped fill the void during Tyler Eifert's absence. It remains to be seen what role, if any, Kroft will have in Cincinnati's offense once he's back to 100 percent on the gridiron.

    04/27/16LBVontaze BurfictSuspensionSUSPENDIn a media luncheon on Tuesday, head coach Marvin Lewis confirmed, "I am not going to play Vontaze Burfict in the preseason," Paul Dehner Jr. of Cincinnati.com reports.

    Burfict is suspended for the first three games of the regular season but is still eligible to play in the preseason by league rules. However, Lewis would rather play it safe and keep his star linebacker on the sidelines, keeping him safe from injuries and any on-the-field issue that could extend his suspension. Lewis said, "There's no reason for us to risk him getting hurt. It's hard because he's so competitive we have to continue to hold him back. One day he gets it the next day he wants to fight me on it. That's it. There's no reason to expose him to injury because he's too valuable." With Burfict out of the rotation, more reps will be allocated to young Bengals' linebackers.

    08/23/16RBAlfred BlueShoulderQUESTIONABLEBlue (shoulder) returned to practice Monday and is expected to play in Sunday's preseason game against the Cardinals.

    Although he missed the first two preseason games, Blue was healthy for the first two weeks of training camp, getting plenty of reps along the way. While not much of a pass-catching threat, Blue is a clear favorite to serve as Lamar Miller's top backup for early downs. Jonathan Grimes handled a lot of the passing-down work last year, but he may need to fend off 2015 seventh-rounder Kenny Hilliard in a competition for a roster spot, as rookie fourth-rounder Tyler Ervin is a lock to make the team even if he doesn't earn much of a role.
