With Nate Clements in a walking boot, Leon Hall nursing a hammy, Jason Allen down-again! and Dre Kirkpatrick still out, the Bengals had an alarming lack of depth in the secondary. The only healthy corners as of this writing are Adam Jones and Terence Newman.
So, when considering the alternatives (none), the Bengals brought back safety Chris Crocker. They made room for...
Nate Clements‘ name has come up all too often in discussions about which cornerback will not make the roster in 2012. Skeptics point to his age. With Dre Kirkpatrick in waiting, there just isn’t any room for Nate. We push him out the door just as quickly as we welcomed him in. But most of [...]
The No. 17th pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, CB Dre Kirkpatrick, is sitting out the Cincinnati Bengals OTAs with a groin injury.
Kirkpatrick and Bengals fans must hope that injuries are not a consistent problem as he will be in for plenty of snaps this season.
According to RotoWorld.com, "How much playing time Kirkpatrick gets as a rookie will depend on how quickly RCB Leon...
Because he gets burnt every now and then, we sometimes forget that Leon Hall is a good corner. We got a good reminder of how good he is in the back half of the season when he tore his Achilles tendon. Nate Clements did an admirable job at trying to maintain the level, but the performance around him lagged, illustrating the need to address the position in the offseason.

When free agency opens next month, there will be some big-name cornerbacks hitting the market. Cincinnati could use one, but it is unclear if the team will spend its considerable cap space on the position. For one, the team has already locked up Leon Hall long-term. And Nate Clements should be back for another season. [...]
Good morning from Heinz Field where the Bengals face the Steelers in a key AFC North game.
First off for the Bengals, the secondary will be severely undermanned with Nate Clements inactive after he injured his hamstring on Thursday. Kelly Jennings and Adam Jones are expected to start at the corners. Rookie safety Robert Sands is active for the first time today.
The last thing the Bengals need going into Sunday’s key AFC North game at Pittsburgh is questions about their secondary, but that is shaping up as one of the major storylines.
Cornerback Nate Clements injured his hamstring on Thursday and did not practice on Friday. When asked after practice if there was a chance Clements would play, Lewis said “Yeah, I think so.” Clements...
Deon Butler is ready to get back in a game after a nearly yearlong recovery from a broken right leg.
Butler fractured his leg taking a knee to his shin from San Francisco 49ers cornerback Nate Clements while catching a 2-yard touchdown pass in a 40-21 loss to the 49ers last December.
He was placed on the physically unable to perform list before training camp, making him ineligible...
