Bengals | Giovani Bernard's role growing
Fri, 20 Sep 2013 06:49:53 -0700
Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard's role is expected to grow in the offense. Offensive coordinator Jay Gruden said Bernard and BenJarvus Green-Ellis should be closer to a 50-50 split in the coming weeks. Gruden feels more comfortable opening the playbook more now that he knows Bernard can handle pass protection.
We alluded to this earlier in the week, and it looks like Green-Ellis' stock is decreasing. Bernard should be owned in most formats, and he could potentially take over as the featured back before the season ends.
