  • Bengals' Giovani Bernard: Gathers 25 yards
    By RotoWire Staff

    Bernard caught all four of his targets for 20 yards and added five yards on two carries during Sunday's 24-21 loss to Baltimore. Sunday provided a slight uptick for Bernard as he comes back from his knee injury, with six touches as compared to four from Week 10. He manged to gain fewer yards, however. He's had a tough few games to judge him fairly, though. The Ravens bottled up the run game Sunday, and last week, the Saints were up by too much for Cincinnati's run game to matter all that much. Still, he trails Joe Mixon in touches 28 to 10 since returning. He is unlikely to get enough touches to be too much of a factor next Sunday against a Browns defense giving up 4.7 yards per carry.

  • Bernard brought in two of three targets for 30 yards and added two carries for six yards in Sunday's loss to the Saints. Bernard was the preferred option in the Bengals' two-minute drill, but Joe Mixon still logged most of the snaps in the backfield. However, the entire second half was essentially garbage time, which makes it difficult to judge the team's plans for the division of labor in the backfield in Week 11.

  • Bernard is active for Sunday's game against the Saints, Fletcher Page of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Bernard will suit up for the first time since Week 4 after sustaining a sprained MCL, an injury that sidelined him for four straight games. Prior to getting hurt, Bernard had been working in a three-down role for the Bengals while Joe Mixon was recovering from a knee injury of his own, but Mixon has since returned to full health. Bernard is thus expected to serve in backup capacity going forward, though he'll likely handle significant snaps on passing downs. It's unclear if Bernard will be used extensively in Week 10, however, as he'll be returning from a layoff of more than a month and wasn't able to advance beyond limited practice participation Wednesday through Friday.

  • Bernard (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Doing the math, with six players already ruled out by the Bengals and Alex Redmond considered doubtful, there's currently no room for Bernard on the team's Week 10 inactive list. Assuming he's available for the team's 1:00 PM ET kickoff Sunday, Bernard would step into a change-of-pace role behind Joe Mixon, who is coming off his best game of the season. It's an assignment that could yield a degree of PPR utility for Bernard, but volume will be an issue for him as long as Mixon is healthy.

  • Bernard (knee) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports. Bernard has opened Week 10 with back-to-back limited practice sessions, but the Bengals may have been hoping for him to put in a little more work coming off a bye. Cincinnati will wait and see if Bernard is able to upgrade to a full session Friday, but if not, the running back would almost certainly carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Saints. If cleared to play this weekend, Bernard could be eased back into the mix with a restricted snap count after missing the Bengals' previous four contests with an MCL sprain.
