Green-Ellis is believed to have injured himself in the Bengals second preseason game when he left after just one carry for three yards. The loss of Green-Ellis could open the way for Jeremy Hill to be the Bengals No. 2 back this season. Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson...

Cincinnati Bengals: Player Most Likely To Break Out In 2014

The Cincinnati Bengals are facing a potential problem in the very crowded backfield. Do they unleash Giovani Bernard as the feature back or do they continue to run a "running-back-by commitee" (RBBC) backfield as they did in 2013?The RBBC backfield certainly worked well for the Bengals last season as BenJarvus Green-Ellis and Bernard shared the ball-carrying duties as they...

Jeremy Hill Tweets "I'm Fine" After Leaving Game With Shoulder Injury

Bengals rookie running back Jeremy Hill left Saturday's preseason game with a right shoulder injury, but tweeted "I'm fine" late Saturday night. Fantasy Spin: Hill is expected to fill the BenJarvus Green-Ellis role this season, but Giovani Bernard is going to see a bump in touches and could also get goal-line carries so Hills value will be limited to the flex spot.

Jeremy Hill Moves Above BJGE On Depth Chart

Rookie running back Jeremy Hill has been playing ahead of BenJarvus Green-Ellis in training camp, according to Spin:Green-Ellis seemingly is closer to losing his third-string job to Cedric Peerman or Rex Burkhead than he is to catching Hill. The Bengals drafted Hill (6-1, 238 lbs) out of LSU in the second round to serve as the team's between-the-tackles rusher...

Green-Ellis gets boost from Bengals coach

BenJarvus Green-Ellis' future with the Cincinnati Bengals first appeared in doubt back in early May when the Bengals drafted running back Jeremy Hill out of LSU. The rookie is bigger than Green-Ellis. He's faster and clearly younger, too. His legs have several years left in them. Not the one or two Green-Ellis' presumably have remaining. Such evidence, it would seem...

Is Bengals running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis on his way out of Cincinnati?

Now that the Cincinnati Bengals have decided Giovani Bernard is their running back of the future, BenJarvus Green-Ellis may be the odd man out. Last season Green-Ellis saw his drole dramatically shrink. He was effective in third and short situations but his yards per carry dropped to a dismal 3.4. In May’s NFL Draft the Bengals selected LSU’s Jeremy Hill in the second round,...

Green-Ellis sliding into obscurity in Cincinnati

With the Bengals spending a second-round pick in each of the last two years on tailbacks, a free-agent arrival from 2012 has moved closer to becoming the odd man out. And with injuries and (in Seattle) a holdout popping up throughout the NFL, don’t be shocked if a market emerges for BenJarvus Green-Ellis. After gaining 1,094 yards on 278 carries in 2012, the arrival of Giovani...

Cincinnati Bengals: Why BenJarvus Green-Ellis should be nervous

In the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft, the Cincinnati Bengals took running back Jeremy Hill out of LSU. I was shocked by this move, as I saw the need for a Safety was more glaring than upgrading the running back position. So when Cincinnati selected Hill, it made the running back position a little crowded on the Bengals depth chart. Last season, Green-Ellis and rookie running...
