by Larry Hartstein |

Bengals receiver Marvin Jones was placed on the PUP list with an ankle injury Monday, but it's just a tweak and he's expected to practice this week, reports Pro Football Talk. The Bengals open training camp Thursday.

Jones is considered day-to-day. He suffered the injury at a passing camp arranged by quarterback Andy Dalton, the report said.

Marvin Jones dealing with ankle injury
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Bengals placed receiver Marvin Jones on the Active/Non-Football Injury list with an ankle injury. Their training camp opens Thursday.

Jones participated in the team's offseason workouts and minicamp so he could have hurt himself over the last month, but the injury isn't believed to be too serious as he's posted multiple pictures of himself on Twitter recently, including some of him at the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards. He also worked out as recently as July 8

by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Bengals rookie running back Jeremy Hill is a candidate to break out this season, reports ESPN.

Hill is expected to be No. 2 on the depth chart behind Giovani Bernard in offensive coordinator Hue Jackson's run-heavy offense. Hill is expected to get short-yardage work ahead of BenJarvus Green-Ellis, who isn't a lock to make the final roster.

A.J. Green: I've yet to hit my peak
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Bengals receiver A.J. Green has gained 1,000 receiving yards in each of his first three years and scored 29 touchdowns over that span. But he doesn't feel like he's played his best yet, reports ESPN.

"If you're a great athlete, I feel like you'll think you always left something [on the table]," Green said. "I feel like I still haven't reached my peak yet." 

Green had 98 catches for 1,426 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2013. If he has yet to reach his peak then the rest of the league could be in trouble this year.

Green expects new offensive coordinator Hue Jackson to push him to new heights this season.

"He's never satisfied with where I am," Green said of Jackson. "That's one thing about him. No matter what I do or what I've accomplished these first three years, there's always more I can do. I remember when the [NFL Network's] Top 100 came out and I was the No. 2 receiver, he said, 'OK, let's go be No. 1.'"
