Bengals to 'expand portfolio' of Giovani Bernard
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Bengals want to find different ways to get the ball to running back Giovani Bernard, reports ESPN.com.

"I don't know if it's the workload that's going to get more, it's more the type of plays that we're going to run with him in the game," running backs coach Kyle Caskey told the website. "We're going to expand his portfolio of plays and find different ways to get the ball in his hands in space. You get the ball in Gio's hands in space, he's dangerous."

Cincy could line up Bernard as an outside or slot receiver -- anything to get him in space.

"You don't necessarily have to hand it off and say, 'Hey, Gio got 260 touches last year out of the backfield.' Maybe he gets 260 to 300 touches but he gets them some other way," Caskey said. "Maybe he gets 200 out of the backfield but he catches 100 passes or however it is. We'll find a way to get the ball to him."

Jeremy Hill still ahead of BenJarvus Green-Ellis
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Bengals rookie running back Jeremy Hill continues to work with the second team, ahead of veteran BenJarvus Green-Ellis, reports ESPN.com. While he remains popular among teammates and coaches, Green-Ellis doesn't appear close to supplanting Hill or starter Giovani Bernard, the report said.

Rex Burkhead or Cedric Peerman could threaten Green-Ellis' roster spot.
