Bengals' Giovani Bernard: Modest use in first game back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bernard had two catches for 30 yards on three targets, along with 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, though the entire second half was essentially garbage time, which makes it difficult to judge the team's intentions for next week.

Bengals' Giovani Bernard: Returns from four-game absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bengals' Giovani Bernard: Likely available in Week 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bernard (knee), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints, is expected to play, a source told Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Sidelined for more than a month with an MCL sprain, Bernard participated in practice with the Bengals throughout the week, albeit in a limited capacity. He'll likely hold a pregame workout before his status is decided, but the running back appears to be trending toward a return to action. Given the long layoff along with the fact that he still might not be 100 percent healthy, Bernard may not immediately reclaim his role as the Bengals' top pass-catching option out of the backfield if he suits up. Bernard should at least absorb most of the minimal snaps that have recently fallen to rookie Mark Walton, who has been serving as the primary backup to Joe Mixon over the past four contests.

Bengals' Giovani Bernard: Listed as questionable this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 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.

Bengals' Giovani Bernard: Limited for second straight day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
