Bengals' Clint Boling: Aiming to return for training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boling (shoulder) feels he'll be ready for the start of training camp, Jim Owczarski of Cincinnati.com reports. "Everything's been going well. It's coming along well," Boling said. "I've been able to work out and do pretty much everything in the weight room. Just kind of keep taking the time and I should be back here pretty soon."

Boling underwent shoulder surgery this offseason after finishing the 2016 campaign on injured reserve. He's expected to return to his usual role as a first-string guard when healthy.

Bengals' Alex Erickson: Needs to earn roster spot again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Erickson will have to compete for a roster spot, despite leading the AFC in kickoff return average (27.9 yards) as a rookie, Dan Hoard of Bengals.com reports.

Erickson caught on as an undrafted free agent due to his ability to contribute on special teams, and while his work on kickoffs was impressive, he averaged only 7.0 yards on 28 punt returns. He also caught just six passes, and the Bengals' first-round selection of John Ross (shoulder) provides competition for the return gig, in addition to all but ensuring Erickson won't be involved in the offense.

Bengals' C.J. Uzomah: Working hard in offseasson
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Uzomah has been working hard in the offseason to sharpen all aspects of his game, Dan Hoard of the Bengals' official site reports. "I'm trying to work on my hands -- whether it's as a blocker or getting off the jam," Uzomah said. "I'm working on my hips a little bit too. ...I've also been working with Ben (Creamer) from Ignition APG with boxing and hand fighting and he does a great job with that. I did it a little last year but not as much as I will this upcoming year. I think that helps tremendously and translates to the field a lot."

Uzomah had to step up last season after starting tight end Tyler Eifert missed games due to injury. The 24-year-old ended the season with 25 receptions for 234 yards and one score. Uzomah is looking to pick up where he left off last season, but he may have to take a backseat to Eifert (back) and Tyler Kroft (knee) on the depth chart. However, if injuries prevail, the Bengals will have some assurance, knowing that Uzomah is waiting in the wings.

He tallied 200 yards on 17 receptions for the team during his rookie campaign last season. Expect an update on his status when the team provides more clarity on the situation.

Bengals' Brandon Wilson: Non-participant at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson is dealing with a knee injury and has yet to participate fully in a practice since the start of rookie minicamp, Jim Owczarski of Cincinnati.com 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.
