CINCINNATI (AP) Top Bengals draft pick Darqueze Dennard is finally getting a chance to contribute as a cornerback.

Gio Practicing In Full Heading Into Week 12

Bengals running back Giovani Bernard (hip) was a full participant in Thursday's practice and should be ready to go Sunday.Fantasy Spin:It is unclear how the distribution of the workload will go considering how well backup Jeremy Hill played in Bernard's absence.

I especially love fading the public when they’re on an underdog. They very rarely are, but if they are, chances...
