    Bengals' Tyler Boyd: Hopes to stay in Cincy long term

    Tyler Boyd is entering the final year of his rookie contract but hopes to remain with the Cincinnati Bengals long term, Joe Danneman of FOX 19 Cincinnati reports. "I show it. I'm here practicing every day to show (the organization) I care about them. I believe I've showed I want to be here," the receiver said.The Bengals finally got a worthwhile return on investment from Boyd after a season in which he broke out for 1,028 yards and seven touchdowns on 76 receptions in 14 contests. With John Ross proving to be a disappointment thus far and A.J. Green on the final year of his own deal, it wouldn't be a surprise if Cincinnati eventually locks up the 25-year-old Boyd at some point before he hits the open market next offseason. It's convenient to think he could get a deal similar to that of a receiver picked 15 slots ahead of Boyd in the 2016 NFL Draft, Sterling Shepard, who got a four-year, $41 million contract from the Giants this spring. Working in Boyd's favor is that he appears fully healthy after undergoing minor knee surgery this offseason and is participating in team drills during this week's minicamp, according to Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site.

    Bengals' Tyler Boyd: Should be healthy by February

    Tyler Boyd said Tuesday that he expects to be fully recovered from the sprained MCL in his right knee in about two weeks, Alex Marvez of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.Boyd sustained the injury Week 15 against the Raiders and missed the Cincinnati Bengals' final two games of 2018 as a result. Despite the premature end to his campaign, Boyd still represented one of the few bright spots for the Bengals after amassing 76 receptions for 1,028 yards and seven scores across 14 games. He shouldn't face any limitations during OTAs and should reprise his role as the Bengals' clear No. 2 receiver behind A.J. Green (foot) in 2019.

    Bengals' Tyler Boyd: Lands on IR

    Tyler Boyd (knee) has been placed on IR by the Cincinnati Bengals.Boyd's placement on IR is presumably not indicative of any setbacks with his MCL injury. Rather, he simply wasn't going to play Sunday against the Steelers, and the move allowed the Bengals to promote fellow wide receiver Hunter Sharp from their practice squad. Prior to suffering his injury, the 2016 second-rounder enjoyed a breakout campaign, hauling in 76 of his 108 targets for 1,028 yards and seven TDs in 14 games. Looking ahead to next season, the Bengals' 2019 wideout corps is slated to be headed by A.J. Green (foot) and Boyd, with speedy John Ross a candidate to carve out a larger role in the Cincinnati offense in his third NFL season.

    Bengals' Tyler Boyd: Idle for another practice

    Tyler Boyd (knee) was a non-participant in Thursday's practice, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.Boyd has followed up an absence in his team's Week 16 loss to the Browns with no activity in practices Wednesday and Thursday. At this point, his chances of making it back for Sunday's season finale against the Steelers appear remote, but the Cincinnati Bengals will likely wait and see what he's able to do (or not do) at Friday's practice before making a ruling on his status.

    Bengals' Tyler Boyd: Looking shaky for Week 17

    Tyler Boyd (knee) wasn't spotted at practice Wednesday, Geoff Hobson of the Cincinnati Bengals' official site reports.With the Bengals sitting at 6-9 and removed from playoff contention, there might not be much upside in bringing Boyd back for Sunday's season finale against the Steelers. If he fails to get back on the practice field the next two days and is ruled out for a second straight game, John Ross, Cody Core and Alex Erickson would head the Bengals' depleted receiver corps in Week 17.

    Bengals' Tyler Boyd: Ruled out this week

    Tyler Boyd (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Browns, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.As a result, look for John Ross to head the Cincinnati Bengals' wideout corps in Week 16, with Cody Core and Alex Erickson also having an opportunity to be factors in a weakened Cincinnati passing game. Given the absences of Boyd, A.J. Green (foot), Tyler Eifert (ankle) and Andy Dalton (thumb), expect a run-oriented game plan featuring Joe Mixon to be in the forecast for Cincinnati.

    Bengals' Tyler Boyd: Not seen at practice

    Tyler Boyd (knee) wasn't spotted on the field during the portion of Thursday's practice that was open to the media, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.Boyd is thus in line to go down as a non-participant in practice for the second straight day, putting his status for Sunday's game in Cleveland on murky ground. The Cincinnati Bengals, who have already shut down two of their best pass catchers for the season in No. 1 receiver A.J. Green (foot) and top tight end Tyler Eifert (ankle), can hardly afford another significant absence at wideout, especially with the inexperienced Jeff Driskel under center. If Boyd is sidelined for Week 16, John Ross (knee) would likely rank as Driskel's top target, but the Washington product wouldn't make for a particularly comfortable lineup option.

    Bengals' Tyler Boyd: Misses practice

    Tyler Boyd (knee) didn't practice Wednesday, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.With Boyd believed to be dealing with an MCL sprain, his status for Sunday's game against the Browns -- and the Week 17 tilt with the Steelers -- is cloudy. At 6-8, the Cincinnati Bengals don't have much to gain by having Boyd play at less than full health, so he'll be a candidate for shutdown if he fails to make noticeable progress before the weekend. In that scenario, John Ross (knee) -- health permitting -- along with Cody Core and Alex Erickson would be in line to head the team's wideout corps down the stretch.

    Bengals' Tyler Boyd: Could be shut down

    Coach Marvin Lewis said the Cincinnati Bengals will make a decision on Tyler Boyd (knee) later this week, Richard Skinner of WKRC-TV Cincinnati reports.While a decision hasn't actually been made, Lewis is implicitly acknowledging the possibility of Boyd being shut down for the final two weeks of the season. The 25-year-old wide receiver initially tried to play through a knee injury during Sunday's 30-16 win over the Raiders, ultimately sitting out for most of the second half, then saying afterward that he doesn't expect to miss any additional time. Reportedly dealing with a low-grade MCL sprain, Boyd may soon realize it isn't in his best interest to risk a more serious injury without the motivation of a playoff appearance. John Ross, Cody Core and Alex Erickson all figure to get plenty of run Week 16 in Cleveland.

    Bengals' Tyler Boyd: Diagnosed with MCL sprain

    Tyler Boyd (knee) is dealing with a low-grade MCL sprain, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.While Boyd seems to have avoided a severe injury, the timing could bring his breakout 2018 campaign to an early end, particularly with the Cincinnati Bengals eliminated from playoff contention. He did briefly attempt to play through the sprain during Sunday's 30-16 win over the Raiders, and he said after the game that he expects to be ready for Week 16 in Cleveland. Despite his initial optimism, it won't come as any surprise if Boyd is unavailable when the Bengals begin practice this week. A game absence would leave John Ross, Cody Core and Alex Erickson as the Bengals' top options at wide receiver.
