Position Listing
Cedric Peerman
News
The Bengals received little from their major skill position players Sunday, let alone their bit parts.

Among the minor contributors was recently signed wideout Greg Little, who dropped the first pass thrown his way and caught the next one for 13 yards. Fellow receiver Brandon Tate added a reception for seven yards while running back Cedric Peerman pitched in with a five-yard catch.

Mike Pollak
News
Bengals running back Giovani Bernard (ribs) and all the team's other probables are active for Sunday's Week 8 matchup against the Ravens.

Bernard wasn't in danger of missing this critical matchup with the division-leading Ravens. The defense will be without Rey Maualuga, but linebackers Vontaze Burfict (neck) and Emmanuel Lamur (shoulder), cornerback Leon Hall (back) and defensive ends Robert Geathers (toe) and Wallace Gilberry (eye) are all active. Offensive linemen Andre Smith (shoulder), Mike Pollak (knee) and Marshall Newhouse (back) are also active, as is tight end Kevin Brock (neck).

Kevin Greene
News
The 49ers made several moves to trim the roster to 75 players Monday.

The team waived quarterback McLeod Bethel-Thompson, safety D.J. Campbell, tight end Kevin Greene, running back Jewel Hampton, punt Colton Schmidt, linebacker Kion Wilson and wide receiver Devon Wylie, while also releasing wide receiver David Reed.

The team placed running back Marcus Lattimore, fullback Trey Millard, cornerback Keith Reaser and guard Brandon Thomas on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury List and linebacker NaVorro Bowman, tight end Garrett Celek and defensive tackle Kaleb Ramsey were placed on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform List. Linebacker Blake Costanzo was released from the Injured Reserve list.

Mohamed Sanu
News
Everyone who plays Fantasy Football has a right to envy the Golden Tate owner, with one exception: the Mohamed Sanu owner. Tate and Sanu are one and the same, you see.

Both were worth rostering on their own merits, so it's not like everyone had an equal shot at them on the waiver wire. Both have capitalized on injuries to star teammates to become bona fide Fantasy studs.

The jury was still out on Sanu, I guess, prior to Week 8 against Baltimore, when he had five catches for 125 yards and two rushes for 27 yards. I say "I guess" because I didn't see much reason to doubt him after his three-catch, 54-yard effort in Week 7. Like Tate, he's had one so-so performance in a starring role but has gone for well more than 100 yards in every other chance.

Of course, like Tate, his time in the spotlight may be nearing an end. A.J. Green, who's recovering from a toe injury, said he was about 80 percent for Sunday's game, up from 40 percent in Week 7. Another week could bring that percentage to 100.

But again, Sanu was worth rostering on his own merits prior to Green's injury and now has an even better rapport with quarterback Andy Dalton. He's not an automatic sit if Green returns, but he's an automatic start if he doesn't.

J.K. Schaffer
News
The Bengals waived linebacker J.K. Schaffer (concussion) and cornerback Lavelle Westbrooks (thumb) with injury designations. Cincy also waived linebacker James Davidson and quarterback Matt Scott to reach the 75-man roster limit.
Injury
Ryan Hewitt
No Updates
Sam Montgomery
News
The Bengals made a slew of moves Saturday to pare their roster down to the required 53 for the regular season.

Among those moves was the placement of guard Trey Hopkins on the reserve/injured list with a leg issue. Rookie quarterback AJ McCarron was put on the reserve/non-football injury list with a shoulder problem.

The Bengals also cut the following offensive players: tackles Dan France and Will Svitek, wide receivers Colin Lockett and Cobi Hamilton, center Trevor Robinson and running backs James Wilder and Nikita Whitlock.

Defenders waived by the Bengals include safety Danieal Manning, cornerbacks Onterio McCalebb and Victor Hampton, tackles Devon Still and David King and ends Sam Montgomery and Dontay Moch.

Cornerback Chris Lewis-Harris will begin serving a two-game drug suspension handed dowsn by the league.

Reggie Nelson
News
The Bengals defense dominated the Titans Sunday, racking up two sacks and two interceptions in the team's 33-7 Week 3 win.

Cincinnati was pitching a shutout before the Titans managed a fourth-quarter score after falling behind 33-0. The Bengals defense also notched a safety after the Titans were called for a penalty in their own end zone. Defensive end Carlos Dunlap had six tackles and one of the team's sacks, giving him three straight games with a sack to open the season. Rookie cornerback Darqueze Dennard recorded the other sack. Defensive end Robert Geathers and safety Reggie Nelson both notched their first interceptions of the season in the win. The Bengals should face a much tougher test after a Week 4 bye when they travel to New England.

Domata Peko
News
Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict (knee) and defensive tackle Domata Peko (toe) suffered injuries in the first quarter of Sunday's matchup against the Ravens. However, the team announced that both players are expected to return to action.

Clarke, Johnson and Hawkinson are all healthy scratches.

Brandon Tate
News
Bengals wide receiver Mohamed Sanu served as Andy Dalton's primary option once again with A.J. Green sidelined Sunday, catching a team-high five passes on nine targets for 125 yards in Cincinnati's 27-24 win over Baltimore in Week 8.

Sanu's highlight came on the first drive of the game, as the receiver executed a stab-and-grab on an overthrown ball to haul in a juggling catch before racking up yards after the catch en route to a 48-yard play. He also added 27 rushing yards on two carries, including a 26-yard scamper on a reverse from midfield. Sanu has 35 receptions for 533 yards and three touchdowns.

The rest of the Bengals performed well with their limited chances in the passing game. Tight end Jermaine Gresham caught all four of his targets for 34 yards, Greg Little caught three of his five targets for 42 yards and Brandon Tate added two more catches for 30 yards, helping Andy Dalton to deliver an excellent 9.5 yards-per-attempt mark.

The Bengals will face the Jaguars at home in Week 9.

Darqueze Dennard
News
The Bengals defense dominated the Titans Sunday, racking up two sacks and two interceptions in the team's 33-7 Week 3 win.

Cincinnati was pitching a shutout before the Titans managed a fourth-quarter score after falling behind 33-0. The Bengals defense also notched a safety after the Titans were called for a penalty in their own end zone.

Emmett Cleary
News

Mike Nugent
News
Bengals kicker Mike Nugent made both of his field-goal attempts and three extra points in his team's 27-24 win over the Ravens in Week 8.

Nugent wasn't called upon to hit from distance, making field goals from 32 and 33 yards out in the second half to keep his team in the lead before the Ravens went ahead in the fourth quarter but ultimately couldn't stay in front. Nugent has made just 13 of his 19 field-goal attempts this season. The Bengals are set to face the Jaguars at home in Week 9.

Nico Johnson
News
The Bengals announced Wednesday they signed linebacker Nico Johnson off the Chiefs practice squad. Johnson totaled seven tackles (five solo) in six games for the Chiefs in 2013.

Onterio McCalebb
News
The Bengals have waived defensive tackle Christo Bilukidi and signed cornerback Onterio McCalebb off their practice squad.

Bilukidi has limited NFL experience. He has played in 13 games with Oakland and Cincinnati and recorded 10 tackles. McCalebb has yet to take a snap in an NFL game.

Alex Smith
News
With an eye on Week 8 and beyond, Jamey Eisenberg tabbed his top quarterbacks on the waiver wire Tuesday, headlined by the Dolphins' Ryan Tannehill, who is owned in just 43 percent of CBSSports.com leagues at this point.

Additionally, Jamey eyes a few key stashes who might be worth your time if you are having trouble at the position or just have a roster spot to fill. Specifically, recovering Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (36 percent) and Johnny Manziel (13 percent), the Browns' backup, could be worth a flier.

Among quarterbacks with a lower ceiling who nonetheless have jobs locked down, Kyle Orton of the Bills (12 percent) and Alex Smith of the Chiefs (59 percent) have some value, with matchups against the Jets and Rams, respectively, for Week 8. 

Injury
Biceps - IR. Out for season

Andy Dalton
News
Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard both rank the Bengals' Andy Dalton among their top 12 quarterbacks for Week 9, presumably because he's facing the Jaguars. But how did that work out for Ryan Tannehill in Week 8, Brian Hoyer in Week 7 or, yep, even Ben Roethlisberger in Week 5?

I don't know about you, but I'm getting tired of the whole "start Player X against the Jaguars because they're bad" argument. Because they're not. At least not anymore -- not on defense, anyway. The Jaguars have allowed an average of 16.5 points in their last four games, and if not for the Dolphins' two defensive touchdowns in Week 8, it'd be 13.0

True, star wide receiver A.J. Green is looking likely to return from a three-game absence for a toe injury, which would certainly improve Dalton's chances. But again, quality quarterbacks -- namely, Tannehill and Roethlisberger -- have had their full arsenals when they faced the Jaguars, and they still underwhelmed against them. I'm not sure this is Dalton's week.

Now, with so many high-profile quarterbacks (such as Aaron Rodgers, Matthew Stafford, Matt Ryan and Jay Cutler) on bye this week, you may want it to be Dalton's week, but I'd give Carson Palmer, Nick Foles, Cam Newton or Tannehill a shot before I turned to him.

Marshall Newhouse
News
Bengals running back Giovani Bernard (ribs) and all the team's other probables are active for Sunday's Week 8 matchup against the Ravens.

Bernard wasn't in danger of missing this critical matchup with the division-leading Ravens. The defense will be without Rey Maualuga, but linebackers Vontaze Burfict (neck) and Emmanuel Lamur (shoulder), cornerback Leon Hall (back) and defensive ends Robert Geathers (toe) and Wallace Gilberry (eye) are all active. Offensive linemen Andre Smith (shoulder), Mike Pollak (knee) and Marshall Newhouse (back) are also active, as is tight end Kevin Brock (neck).

Taylor Mays
News
The Bengals re-signed defensive back Taylor Mays Tuesday, according to CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. Financial details of the move are not yet known. 

Mays finished the 2013 season with 19 tackles and one fumble recover in eight games. 

Shawn Williams
News
The Bengals have ruled out wide receiver Marvin Jones for the Sunday game against Tennessee with a foot injury that has prevented him from playing in either of the first two games. He is the lone certain scratch listed on the Friday injury report.

Several players have been deemed doubtful, however, including linebacker Vontaze Burfict (concussion), running back Rex Burkhead (knee), linebacker Sean Porter (hamstring), defensive tackle Brandon Thompson (knee) and guard Kevin Zeitler (calf).

Defensive end Carlos Dunlap (knee), offensive lineman Mike Pollak (knee), tackle Andrew Whitworth (knee) and safety Shawn Williams (groin) are all listed as probable.

Jermaine Gresham
News
Bengals wide receiver Mohamed Sanu served as Andy Dalton's primary option once again with A.J. Green sidelined Sunday, catching a team-high five passes on nine targets for 125 yards in Cincinnati's 27-24 win over Baltimore in Week 8.

Sanu's highlight came on the first drive of the game, as the receiver executed a stab-and-grab on an overthrown ball to haul in a juggling catch before racking up yards after the catch en route to a 48-yard play. He also added 27 rushing yards on two carries, including a 26-yard scamper on a reverse from midfield. Sanu has 35 receptions for 533 yards and three touchdowns.

The rest of the Bengals performed well with their limited chances in the passing game. Tight end Jermaine Gresham caught all four of his targets for 34 yards, Greg Little caught three of his five targets for 42 yards and Brandon Tate added two more catches for 30 yards, helping Andy Dalton to deliver an excellent 9.5 yards-per-attempt mark.

The Bengals will face the Jaguars at home in Week 9.

Giovani Bernard
News
Bengals running back Giovani Bernard was absent from practice again Thursday, according to the team's official website. The NFL injury report only lists Bernard with a hip injury, but it was reported Wednesday he also has a shoulder injury.

The Bengals are preparing to face the Jaguars in Week 9. Jeremy Hill is expected to start if Bernard is unavailable.

Injury
Hip - Did not practice. Questionable for Week 9 vs. Jacksonville
Dane Sanzenbacher
News
When star wide receiver A.J. Green went down in the first series with a foot injury, Dane Sanzenbacher was one of the Bengals who helped fill the void Week 2 against Atlanta. After going without a target in Week 1, he was targeted four times in this one, catching two passes for 42 yards.

His biggest play was a 26-yard catch-and-run late in the second quarter. The Bengals would go up by two touchdowns shortly after that and rely more on their running game the rest of the way.

Sanzenbacher will look to remain involved Week 3 against the Titans.

AJ McCarron
News
The Bengals made a slew of moves Saturday to pare their roster down to the required 53 for the regular season.

Among those moves was the placement of guard Trey Hopkins on the reserve/injured list with a leg issue. Rookie quarterback AJ McCarron was put on the reserve/non-football injury list with a shoulder problem.

The Bengals also cut the following offensive players: tackles Dan France and Will Svitek, wide receivers Colin Lockett and Cobi Hamilton, center Trevor Robinson and running backs James Wilder and Nikita Whitlock.

Defenders waived by the Bengals include safety Danieal Manning, cornerbacks Onterio McCalebb and Victor Hampton, tackles Devon Still and David King and ends Sam Montgomery and Dontay Moch.

Cornerback Chris Lewis-Harris will begin serving a two-game drug suspension handed dowsn by the league.

Injury
Shoulder - NFI. Out indefinitely
George Iloka
News
Bengals safety George Iloka has received the go-ahead to play their Week 7 game against Indianapolis despite a groin issue. He was listed as probable.
Adam Jones
News
Fantasy owners might have to wait, potentially a long time, to see large stat contributions from Darqueze Dennard . The fit is pretty good with the Bengals, who have long assembled a cornerback army to help against opposing offenses. But Dennard's rise to the starting lineup is blocked with veterans like Leon Hall, Terence Newman, Adam Jones and Dre Kirkpatrick. The coaches even compared Dennard's game to Hall's, who has been the best Bengals corner for a while.

In time, those guys will clear out and Dennard will play a bunch, but until then his stats won't be great. We'd pass on Dennard in seasonal leagues and would spend only a late-round pick on him in dynasty/keeper formats. He's only worth a late-round pick in rookie-only drafts, too.

Leon Hall
News
Bengals running back Giovani Bernard (ribs) and all the team's other probables are active for Sunday's Week 8 matchup against the Ravens.

Bernard wasn't in danger of missing this critical matchup with the division-leading Ravens. The defense will be without Rey Maualuga, but linebackers Vontaze Burfict (neck) and Emmanuel Lamur (shoulder), cornerback Leon Hall (back) and defensive ends Robert Geathers (toe) and Wallace Gilberry (eye) are all active. Offensive linemen Andre Smith (shoulder), Mike Pollak (knee) and Marshall Newhouse (back) are also active, as is tight end Kevin Brock (neck).

Margus Hunt
News
Several Bengals who were listed as probable are active for Sunday night's game at New England. They include defensive ends Robert Geathers (toe) and Margus Hunt (shoulder), safety George Iloka (abdomen), linebacker Emmanuel Lamur (concussion), guard Mike Pollak (knee) and linebacker Sean Porter (hamstring).
Kevin Huber
News
The Bengals have moved seven players -- defensive tackle Christo Bilukidi, guard Clint Boling, punter Kevin Huber, receiver Colin Lockett, cornerback Onterio McCalebb, guard Mike Pollak and cornerback Leon Hall to the active roster. They had all previously been on the PUP or NFI lists. 
Carlos Dunlap
News
The Bengals defense dominated the Titans Sunday, racking up two sacks and two interceptions in the team's 33-7 Week 3 win.

Cincinnati was pitching a shutout before the Titans managed a fourth-quarter score after falling behind 33-0. The Bengals defense also notched a safety after the Titans were called for a penalty in their own end zone. Defensive end Carlos Dunlap had six tackles and one of the team's sacks, giving him three straight games with a sack to open the season. Rookie cornerback Darqueze Dennard recorded the other sack. Defensive end Robert Geathers and safety Reggie Nelson both notched their first interceptions of the season in the win. The Bengals should face a much tougher test after a Week 4 bye when they travel to New England.

Injury
Illness - Full practice. Probable for Week 9 vs. Jacksonville
Terence Newman
News
Bengals defensive back Terence Newman, who had six tackles in Week 1, topped himself Week 2 against Atlanta, leading the team with nine tackles, including six solo.

Newman never had more than six tackles in a game in 2013.

Injury
Back - Limited practice. Questionable for Week 9 vs. Jacksonville
Kevin Zeitler
News
Bengals guard Kevin Zeitler is doubtful to return to Sunday's game against the Ravens due to a calf injury. Mike Pollak replaced the injured Zeitler in the interior of the Cincinnati offensive line.
Vincent Rey
News
The Bengals listed nine players on their final injury report for Week 6 at home against Carolina.

Outside of star receiver A.J. Green (toe) being questionable for Sunday, Vontaze Burfict (concussion) is the most notable name on the report. He was a full participant in practice all week after receiving clearance from team doctors and is listed as probable. He will need to be given the green light by an independent neurologist in order to play Sunday.

Other probables include safety George Iloka (abdomen), linebacker Rey Maualuga (shoulder), offensive lineman Mike Pollak (knee) and linebacker Vincent Rey (calf). Outside of Green, wide receiver Marvin Jones (ankle), who missed practice all week, was the only other player deemed questionable on the list. Defensive tackle Brandon Thompson (knee) and guard Kevin Zeitler (calf) were both ruled doubtful for the home game.

David King
News
The Bengals made a slew of moves Saturday to pare their roster down to the required 53 for the regular season.

Among those moves was the placement of guard Trey Hopkins on the reserve/injured list with a leg issue. Rookie quarterback AJ McCarron was put on the reserve/non-football injury list with a shoulder problem.

Campbell declared himself fine after throwing freely in practice Wednesday.

Clark Harris
