Bengals' Billy Price: Adapting to left guard
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Price has adapted well to playing left guard instead of center, grading out well against the Bills last week, Joe Goodberry of The Athletic reports.

Price got the opportunity to play left guard last week with rookie Michael Jordan out with an injury, and played well enough to force coach Zac Taylor to say that Jordan isn't guaranteed to get the starting job back.

Bengals' Billy Price: Loses starting spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Price lost the starting center job for Week 1 to Trey Hopkins, Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports.

Price will be the first lineman off the bench when the Bengals need an extra guard or to replace Hopkins at center. He dealt with a foot injury at the start of training camp, but he's also been a slight disappointment on the field when healthy, given that he was the Bengals' first-round pick last season.

Bengals' Billy Price: Reinstated as starting center
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Price was the starting center in Thursday's preseason game against the Giants, after he took a secondary role in the second preseason game against the Redskins, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

The starting center job somewhat surprisingly wasn't guaranteed for Price, who was the Bengals' first-round pick in 2018. Trey Hopkins is competing with Price for the starting job.

Bengals' Billy Price: Activated from NFI list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Price (undisclosed) was activated from the non-football injury list Friday and is expected to return to practice, Tyler Dragon of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

With Price missing so much action last season in his rookie year, it's important for him to get as many reps in training camp as possible. That's doubly true with the Bengals having already lost Jonah Williams and Clint Boling.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bengals' Billy Price: Healthy to enter Week 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Price (foot) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Price appears to have fully recovered from a lingering foot injury sustained during a Week 2 win over Baltimore. The rookie first-round pick is on track to suit up against the Saints on Sunday, and is expected to draw the start at center.

Bengals' Billy Price: Practices Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Price (foot) participated in practice Monday, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Price is expected to return for the Bengals' Week 10 matchup with New Orleans, and his participation Monday bodes well for his status. He should still be considered questionable, with his participation level later in the week giving a better indication of his status.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Price (foot) will likely return after the Bengals' bye, in time for their Week 10 tilt against the Saints, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.

Bengals' Billy Price: Out again Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Price (foot) is listed as inactive Sunday against Tampa Bay, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Price entered the week with a "doubtful" tag, so it's no surprise to see him sit this one out. Trey Hopkins will continue to serve as the starting center in his stead.

Bengals' Billy Price: Doubtful for Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Price (foot) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.

Price returned to practice this week for the first time since suffering an ankle sprain during a Week 2 win over the Ravens, but it appears that Cincinnati intends to take a cautious approach to the rookie first-round pick's health. Whenever he's able to get fully healthy, Price will return to the starting lineup.

Bengals' Billy Price: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Price (foot) returned to practice Wednesday, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.

Price took to the practice field for the first time in five weeks. The rookie center will slot into the starting lineup when healthy and appears on track to play against the Saints in Week 10 following Cincinnati's bye.

Bengals' Billy Price: Not ready to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Price (foot) was ruled out of Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

Price was without his protective walking boot and worked on the side at practice this week, but he'll likely need some real practice reps before returning. Trey Hopkins should continue to start in his stead at center.

Bengals' Billy Price: Sheds walking boot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Price (foot) received a good prognosis from his reevaluation and has shed his walking boot, but he remains without an official timetable for return, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.

Per Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer, Price worked on the side rehab field Wednesday, which is another sign that he is making progress in his recovery. Trey Hopkins should continue to start at center while Price remains sidelined.

Bengals' Billy Price: Ruled out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Price (ankle) was officially ruled out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

The team indicated earlier in the week Price would remain in a boot for two more weeks before being reevaluated, so this was to be expected. Trey Hopkins will continue to start at center in his absence.

Bengals' Billy Price: Two weeks from reevaluation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Price (ankle) will remain in a boot for two more weeks before he's scheduled for reevaluation, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

Price indicated a pair of weeks ago that he would be reevaluated this week, but suggested Wednesday that he initially spoke too soon and hasn't suffered any setbacks in his rehab. The Bengals' starting center will continue to rehab the injured ankle, leaving Trey Hopkins to continue as the starting center.

Bengals' Billy Price: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Price (ankle) was officially ruled out for Sunday's game against the Falcons, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.

This isn't overly surprising, considering Price is dealing with a right ankle sprain and had yet to practice this week. Trey Hopkins is likely to fill in again as starting center for the Bengals at Atlanta.

September 27, 2018 02:28 PM
Bengals' Billy Price: Missing from practice this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Price (ankle) wasn't present at Thursday's practice, not even on the rehab field with team trainers, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.

This aligns with the Bengals' earlier estimates that suggested he won't play for two weeks before being re-evaluated. That he's not out on the rehab field suggests that his status for the Week 5 game against the Dolphins might also be in jeopardy.

Bengals' Billy Price: Out at least two weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Price is confined to a walking boot but isn't expected to require surgery on his sprained right ankle, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports. The Bengals plan to re-evaluate him in two weeks.

Price will rest up through the end of the month before the Bengals have a better idea when the rookie first-round pick might be ready to return to the field. Trey Hopkins is expected to fill in as the Bengals' starting center while Price is sidelined.

Bengals' Billy Price: Suffers ankle sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Price sustained a right ankle sprain in Thursday's win over the Ravens, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.

Price played 19 offensive snaps prior to being ruled out with the injury. The severity of the sprain remains unclear, but the 22-year-old will have a few extra days to rest up before Week 3. Trey Hopkins should fill in at center if Price is forced to miss any time.

Bengals' Billy Price: Out for remainder of Thursday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Price (ankle) has been ruled out for the rest of Thursday's game against the Ravens, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Price left the game in the first half after coming up gimpy with an injured ankle. Trey Hopkins is slated to start at center as long as the rookie is out.
