Bengals' Giovani Bernard: Could be cleared for start of camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bernard (knee) may be cleared to join his teammates when the Bengals open training camp Friday, Jim Owczarski of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Eight months removed from tearing his ACL, Bernard appears to be progressing very well in his recovery. Whether he'll receive clearance for full activity remains to be seen, and being cleared for work in camp is merely a step toward an eventual return to game action. It's believed that the addition of Joe Mixon in April's draft will leave Bernard positioned to work mostly in third-down situations once he's ready to play again.

Bengals' Giovani Bernard: Limited in OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bernard (knee) will be limited during the Bengals' OTA practices, Kevin Patra of Around the NFL reports.

Bernard tore his ACL six months ago and isn't expected to return in full until early on in the regular season. It wouldn't have been surprising to see him sit out OTAs entirely, so his limited participation is a step in the right direction. With the addition of Joe Mixon in the draft, Cincinnati is under no pressure to hurry Bernard back, as he'll likely be the third option when he does return.

Bengals' Giovani Bernard: Crowded backfield
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

With the Bengals drafting Joe Mixon in the second round, Bernard (knee) faces an uphill battle for playing time this season, though perhaps he won't be challenged by Mixon as much as Jeremy Hill, Bengals.com reports.

Bernard is recovering from a torn ACL and is guaranteed to be ready for the start of the season, and Hill is in the last year of his rookie contract, so the Bengals' need for adding a running back was more pressing than what it appears at initial glance.

Bengals' Giovani Bernard: Expected back early in season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals hope to have Bernard available early in the 2017 season, the team's official website reports.

Bernard is making good progress in his recovery from a torn ACL suffered in Week 10, with the Bengals thus hoping to have him back in some capacity for at least a portion of training camp. Week 1 is an ambitious but realistic target, though expectations should probably be tempered at this early stage of the rehab process. With Bernard no sure thing to be ready by Week 1 and Rex Burkhead testing the waters of free agency, Cincinnati is taking a long look at the running backs available in the draft. Jeremy Hill is entering the final year of his rookie contract, coming off back-to-back seasons in which he fell shy of four yards per carry.

Bengals' Giovani Bernard: Making impressive progress
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Bernard (knee) is making great progress in his rehabilitation from last season's torn ACL and anticipated to return some time during training camp, Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports.

Bernard went down in a November game against the Bills, ending his season after 10 games played. Since then, he's drawn consistently positive updates regarding his recovery, which has raised optimism that he'll reenter the fold before the 2017 regular season kicks off. While that would likely allow him to avoid Cincinnati's PUP list, which would rule him out for the first six weeks of the campaign, Bernard reportedly might still need a game or two before he's fully ready to play. Overall, the possibility of missing games still exists, but Bernard is at least doing the best he can to ensure any absence is minimized.
