Left guard Travelle Wharton hurt his right knee during Cincinnati's opening series and left the field on a cart, the start of a series of injuries to Bengals starters. Middle linebacker Rey Maualuga and defensive end Carlos Dunlap also left the field with injured right knees during the following series, costing the Bengals three of their starters in the opening 5 minutes of a preseason game against the New York Jets. Wharton appeared to be the most seriously injured. He went down while pass blocking on the Bengals' third play, rolled over in pain and stayed down for several minutes while trainers moved his leg to check his knee. They called for a cart to take him from the field for tests. Wharton signed as a free agent last March after spending eight seasons with Carolina. Clint Boling replaced him. On New York's next play, Maualuga hurt his right knee and needed help to get off the field, wrapping his arms around two trainers while walking gingerly to the sideline. ...

Mixed bag for Bengals in opener

CINCINNATI - For starters, four Bengals starters got hurt. Preseason football is just the worst. It's a necessary evil, though, and one of the best things the Bengals can say about their preseason opener Friday night vs. the Jets is they got through it and can move forward. "My first thought is that we need to be a little crisper in the passing game," Bengals coach...

Bernard Scott Questionable For Friday Night

Running back Bernard Scott (hand) is questionable for the Bengals' first preseason game.Fantasy Spin:Barring this turning into a long-term problem, it shouldn't effect his status as the No. 2 back behind BenJarvis Green-Ellis. In three seasons Scott has yet to run for more than 112 attempts in a year while Green-Ellis has averaged 205 carries the past two years in New England...

Cedric Benson Joins the Pack…

Cedric Benson will probably commit his next criminal action in Green Bay! So, congratulations to the residents and bar owners there. The veteran running back's best days are behind him but he will have a chance to outperform competition in Green Bay. This signing is reflective of the poor performance thus far in camp by incumbent starter James Starks. He has underwhelmed...

Cedric Benson? Really?

According to one report, the Packers signing of Cedric Benson is "probable." The move makes little sense on the surface and even less sense when you read the last line from our commentary.

New York Jets Vs. Cincinnati Bengals: What We Learned from Preseason Week One

NFL Preseason games ultimately mean next to nothing in the long run, the results forgotten soon after the final whistle. Individual performances are the main takeaway, as game situations can expose faults as well as strengths in an individual player's skill set. Preseason games are a good way to test how a unit is progressing, especially in weeks two and three on the preseason...

Packers sign Cedric Benson

After going fully with a youth approach at the running back position this offseason, the Packers have finally caved and signed a veteran back, signing Cedric Benson, formerly of the Cincinnati Bengals, to a one year contract. Prior to Benson’s signing, the idea was to have James Starks, a 2010 6th round pick with just 162 career carries, and Alex Green, a 2011 3rd round pick with...

Packers Expected To Sign Benson

The signing of Cedric Benson begs two questions. The first is why are the Packers interested in adding a 29-year-old running back? The second is why isn’t that 29-year-old running back named Ryan Grant. The answers to both questions are actually pretty easy. General manager Ted Thompson is adding a veteran running back because projected starter [...]

Bengals’ Carlos Dunlap sidelined a month with a knee injury

According to the Bengals’ official website, Carlos Dunlap is expected to miss about a month with a knee injury, which puts his availability for week 1 in serious doubt. Dunlap is one of the league’s most underrated players as the 2010 2nd round pick graded out as ProFootballFocus’ 7th rated defensive end last season, with 5 sacks, 13 quarterback hits, and 29 quarterback pressures...
