Bengals' Vontaze Burfict undergoes microfracture surgery
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict has gone under the knife for surgery on his knee, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.

However, when the surgery was performed in October, it was not reported to be microfracture surgery. Dr. Neal ElAttranche confirmed Sunday he performed microfracture surgery on Burfict's knee.

"I don't see any reason, if this thing heals like we want and we think it will, why he won't be back like he was," said ElAttrache. "Microfracture has a bad connotation, but there are plenty of guys who have come back and been able to play like before. But it's not really news when it works out."

ElAttrache said he believes Burfict should be ready at full strength for the start of training camp.

Burfict's season was cut short by the knee injury, allowing him to play just five games in 2014, totaling 29 tackles.

Report: Broncos still waiting on resolution with DC role
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Broncos hope to have a resolution early this week as to whether they can interview Bengals defensive backs coach Vance Joseph for their defensive coordinator role, according to The Denver Post.

The Broncos interviewed Joseph to be their coach before hiring Gary Kubiak. Still, they were impressed with Joseph that he quickly became a top candidate to be the defensive coordinator. Joseph also has experience working with Kubiak, as Joseph was part of Kubiak's coaching staff with the Texans from 2011-13.

However, Bengals owner Mike Brown and head coach Marvin Lewis have been unwilling to let Joseph out of his contract, which has one year remaining. 

If the Bengals can't hire Joseph, then Denver is expected to fill the defensive coordinator role with either former coach Wade Phillips, former Falcons coach Mike Smith or current linebackers coach Richard Smith. Although, NFL Network reported Monday that Smith is set to join the Falcons' staff as defensive coordinator.

Marvin Lewis: 'No problem with Andy Dalton as our quarterback'
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Bengals are sticking with Andy Dalton at quarterback and have no plans to bring in competition. But coach Marvin Lewis didn't exactly give Dalton a ringing endorsement.

Noting Dalton, Carson Palmer and Jon Kitna have started all but 12 of his 198 games as Cincy's coach, Lewis said he prefers the status quo.

“Fortunately, somehow I’ve got the right little thing on my shoulder that says, ‘Don’t get into a quarterback controversy,’” Lewis told the team's website. “That’s worked from Jon to Carson to Andy. It’s helped us have the success we’ve had and those guys have been good players, productive players. Even when they’ve left out of here they’ve been productive. It works.

“We have no problem with Andy Dalton as our quarterback. We don’t have time to waste time with another QB. To not continue to press forward and get Andy better and to get whoever the backup quarterbacks are better. The quarterback competition. Where has it worked? It doesn’t get you wins.”

The team hopes to re-sign Jason Campbell as Dalton's backup.

Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict no lock for start of season
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict, who's had two knee surgeries since late October, might not be ready for the start of the 2015 season, reports the team's website. The plan is for Burfict to be back, but "there has been some concern" he'll start the season on the PUP list and miss the first six weeks, the report said.

“He has to work his tail off. He has to work harder now than he did to get here,” coach Marvin Lewis said. “Everyone in his inner circle has continued to reinforce that. He has to work harder now than he did to get here.”

Burfict had 29 tackles and a forced fumble in five games this season. He had 298 combined tackles and four sacks in the previous two years.

Report: Bengals blocking Vance Joseph from Broncos, 49ers
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Broncos and 49ers are eager to hire Bengals secondary coach Vance Joseph for bigger jobs, but so far Cincinnati has denied permission for Joseph to interview with those teams, reports the Denver Post.

San Fran wants Joseph to be its defensive coordinator and assistant head coach, while Denver would hire Joseph as DC, the paper said. Joseph got his first NFL coaching job with the 49ers in 2005, and he worked with new Broncos coach Gary Kubiak in Houston from 2011-13, coaching defensive backs.

Bengals owner Mike Brown told Fox Sports on Tuesday he wants to speak with Joseph before deciding whether to release the assistant coach from his contract. It wasn't clear when that conversation would take place.
