06/15/17WRCody CoreLegQUESTIONABLECore was carted off the field Wednesday with an apparent left leg injury, Geoff Hobson of reports.

According to Jim Owczarski of the Enquirer, Core did not suffer any ligament damage. The 23-year-old figures to be just out of the regular rotation of receivers on the depth chart heading into the year. He tallied 17 receptions for 200 yards for the team during his rookie campaign last season. Expect an update on his status when the team provides more clarity on the situation.

06/14/17RBBrandon WilsonKneeQUESTIONABLEWilson is dealing with a knee injury and has yet to participate fully in a practice since the start of rookie minicamp, Jim Owczarski of reports.

When and how the injury occurred is unknown at this time. Wilson has been able to dress for practice, so a return to a heavier workload figures to be around the corner. The sixth-round pick will enter training camp competing for a spot on the final roster.

05/23/17DBDre KirkpatrickWristQUESTIONABLEKirkpatrick (hand) is still being held out of 11-on-11 activity at practice, Jim Owczarski of reports.

Although he is not fully participating in practice, Kirkpatrick has been joining the team during defensive installations. The 27-year-old fractured his hand on May 23, but the injury was not considered to be too serious. He was able to participate for the first time in ball drills Wednesday, and his hand protection has been gradually shrinking. Barring any setbacks, he is seemingly on track to be healthy heading into Week 1.

04/28/17WRJohn RossShoulder - LabrumQUESTIONABLERoss (shoulder) is present for the Bengals' mandatory three-day minicamp, Geoff Hobson of the team's official site reports.

The fleet wideout, who spent parts of the past month preparing for his recent graduation from Washington, is not ready to catch passes at this stage, as he's still rehabbing from labrum surgery in his shoulder. Ross is, however, running routes in anticipation of being medically cleared for training camp, per the Cincinnati Enquirer. Once he's back at full strength, the No. 9 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft will look to parlay his blazing speed into a key role as a deep threat in the Bengals' passing offense, while working behind top wideout A.J. Green.

02/10/17DBGeorge IlokaShoulderQUESTIONABLEIloka underwent a minor procedure on his shoulder Thursday but is expected to be ready for the Bengals' offseason workout program, Jim Owczarski of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Iloka's shoulder scope was reportedly an outpatient procedure, so there is little concern from the Bengals that he'll miss much time. The rangy safety had a strong season by IDP standards in the defensive backfield as he racked up 74 tackles and picked off three passes.

01/25/17RBGiovani BernardKnee - ACLQUESTIONABLEBernard (knee) will be limited during the Bengals' OTA practices, Kevin Patra of Around the NFL reports.

Bernard tore his ACL six months ago and isn't expected to return in full until early on in the regular season. It wouldn't have been surprising to see him sit out OTAs entirely, so his limited participation is a step in the right direction. With the addition of Joe Mixon in the draft, Cincinnati is under no pressure to hurry Bernard back, as he'll likely be the third option when he does return.

01/25/17DBChykie BrownAnkleQUESTIONABLEBrown (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Monday.

Brown injured his ankle Sunday against Baltimore and went in for an MRI on Monday. Obviously, Brown didn't get the results he was hoping for. His season is over.

01/25/17TETyler EifertBackQUESTIONABLEEifert (back) will be limited during the Bengals' OTAs, Jim Owczarski of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Eifert's limited participation on the rehab field comes as no surprise, while his status for training camp later in the summer remains up in the air at this point. He racked up five touchdowns in just eight games last year and has yet to play a full 16-game season due to health issues during his first four years in the league. There's no reason for the Bengals to rush their No. 1 tight end back onto the field following December surgery, so expect Tyler Kroft (knee) and C.J. Uzomah to see additional reps throughout the remainder of the team's OTAs.

(Updated 05/23/2017)
01/02/17TETyler KroftKneeQUESTIONABLEKroft (knee, ankle) finished the 2016 season with 10 catches for 92 yards on 12 targets in 14 games.

A 2015 third-round selection, Kroft entered his second NFL training camp as the favorite to fill in for an injured Tyler Eifert early in the season. Kroft then suffered a knee injury that cost him most of camp and the entire preseason, allowing C.J. Uzomah to emerge as the top pass-catching tight end in Eifert's absence. Despite starting 11 games and playing 39 percent of the team's offensive snaps, Kroft was never much of a factor in the Cincinnati passing game. He may have to compete with Uzomah for the No. 2 job in training camp.
