Cincinnati Bengals news, rumors and injuries

Fantasy Tip: Green's status is very iffy heading into Week 8 against the Baltimore Ravens. He's not a smart buy for $7,500 (15.0% of cap) at FantasyScore. Mohamed Sanu ($5,700) remains a much wiser purchase for your lineups.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard should be well enough to play against the Baltimore Ravens. Bernard was shut down last week and faces another tough matchup in the Ravens run D.

Cincinnati Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict needs to improve how he tackles, according to defensive coordinator Paul Guenther. Burfict's head-down tackling style has drawn criticism from Guenther, who said Burfict needs to keep his head up and that he does the team no good when he's on the sideline "after five snaps every week." Burfict has played in just four games this year due to head and neck injuries.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard took a big hit in Week 7. The extent of his injury isn't known, but it's a good sign he was limited early in the week. At a cost of $6,900 (13.8% of cap) at FantasyScore this weekend, it might be tough for him to return you a profit against a Baltimore Ravens run defense that has been stout this year.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) wasn't feeling good enough to return to practice Wednesday, Oct. 22. Head coach Marvin Lewis said Green won't play in Week 8 against the Baltimore Ravens unless he's "significantly healed," but left the door open for Green to play. "It's hard for me to put a guy out there Sunday that I don't think can last a full game," Lewis said. "If we have A.J. for part of the game doing certain things, that would be great. I think we could operate offensively … I guess we'll cross that bridge when the time comes."
Fantasy Tip: Green could be severely limited if he does suit up against the Ravens, making him a very risky play for $7,500 (15.0% of cap) at FantasyScore. Although Mohamed Sanu ($5,700) came down to earth a bit last week, he's the best option in Cincy's passing game with Green beat up.

Cincinnati Bengals LB Rey Maualuga (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 8 against the Baltimore Ravens. DE Robert Geathers (toe), CB Leon Hall (back) and OG Mike Pollak (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 22. TE Kevin Brock (neck), LB Vontaze Burfict (neck), DE Wallace Gilberry (eye), LB Emmanuel Lamur (shoulder), OT Marshall Newhouse (back), OT Andre Smith (shoulder) and OT Brandon Thompson (knee) were limited.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) said his return from a toe injury is "still up in the air" heading into Week 8 against the Baltimore Ravens. However, Green said he's making nice progress, and his toe feels much better. Green hasn't played since Week 5 against the New England Patriots. "It's probably not going to be 100 percent," Green said. "I hope it's just manageable and I can get through the season and be fine and still play at a high level."
Fantasy Tip: Green will likely be questionable this week and could be a game-time decision. How much he'll be able to play if he does suit up will be a big question. His FantasyScore price will likely be fairly high, so it's a big risk if you go with him.

Fantasy Tip: Although Green's comments alone aren't enough to guarantee that he will suit up, they are encouraging. Still, check back throughout the week for updates on his status before using him at FantasyScore.

Cincinnati Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict (neck) did not suffer a concussion in the team's Week 7 game but did suffer a neck injury, according to a team official. Burfict has suffered two concussions this season and has been able to finish only on game this season.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor Green's practice participation to get a better idea of his status for the game. Green would be a risky option if he is able to play, and owners on FantasyScore may want to consider using their money on other receivers.
