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. We believe Scott will get more opportunities in 2012, we don't believe it will be an even split. The "Law Firm" will still dominate the Bengals rushing statistics.
BEST OF MAXIM
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...
I’m excited like every other Bengal fan to see what our team can do. So here I sit, Friday night, kids in bed, watching my team live. What to do? I’m going to write one line of text every time I feel like it that explains how I feel about the game at that moment in time. Let’s see how it goes. Ready? Go!
3 and out

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...
CINCINNATI (AP) -- 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...
New Cincinnati Bengals left guard Travelle Wharton is out for the season with a knee injury, according to two reports. Wharton was one of several Bengals hurt in their 17-6 victory over the New York Jets on Friday. Wharton was injured on the third offensive play and was seen on crutches at halftime. ESPN's John Clayton and ProFootballTalk both reported Saturday that he is...
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.
Free agent running back Cedric Benson has visited the Green Bay Packers, who may be looking to boost their depth at running back.
Agent Eugene Parker confirmed Friday that Benson visited Green Bay, but did not indicate that a deal was in place.
ESPN reported earlier Friday that Benson had visited the team and was expected to sign.
Benson is a free agent after four seasons with...
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...
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...
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 [...]
