07/11/16DBDarqueze DennardShoulderQUESTIONABLEDennard expects to be available for 2016 training camp after undergoing shoulder surgery sometime in the next couple of weeks, Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports.

Dennard hasn't made much of an impact during his two years in the league but appeared to be turning a corner shortly before suffering a season-ending shoulder injury last week. While he's expected to make a full recovery, it seems likely that he'll be in store for another ancillary role on the Bengals' defense next season.

07/11/16TETyler EifertAnkleDOUBTFULAs training camp approaches next week, the Cincinnati Enquirer relays via a league source that Eifert's rehab -- as the tight end bounces back from an ankle procedure -- "is on schedule and progressing as planned."

While the report infers that Eifert hasn't endured any further setbacks with the injury, which dates back to the Pro Bowl on Jan. 31, a concrete timetable for his return to full action has yet to be outlined. Initial estimates suggested that the Bengals hoped to have Eifert available to start the coming season, but the report acknowledges "there remains the possibility he could miss games should the rehabilitation process take longer than expected." Some degree of added clarity with regard to Eifert's progress should surface as camp rolls along, but at this stage it's too early to get a good read on how much impact the tight end will be ready to make out of the gate in 2016.

07/11/16DLBrandon ThompsonKneeQUESTIONABLEAll the Bengals who were probable or questionable on the injury report are active for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. The list includes linebacker Jayson DiManche (shoulder), defensive end Carlos Dunlap (illness), cornerback Terence Newman (back), defensive tackle Domata Peko (toe), guard Mike Pollak (knee), defensive tackle Brandon Thompson (knee) and offensive tackle Andre Smith (knee).
04/27/16LBVontaze BurfictSuspensionSUSPENDBurfict's three-game suspension was upheld by appeals officer Derrick Brooks, ESPN's Dan Graziano reports.

As expected, Burfict will miss the first three games of the 2016 season due to repeated on-field incidents, culminating with his cheap shot on Antonio Brown in a playoff loss to the Steelers. He's an excellent player, but his value to the Bengals has been dampened by a combination of injuries and careless penalties. He has 14 unnecessary roughness flags and 401 tackles in 47 games through four seasons.
