Yesterday we reported that the Cincinnati Bengals shaved down their roster to 53 players in preparation for the regular season. The next roster moves due for NFL teams is deciding who will play on their practice squads. Here’s a primer on practice squad rules, per The Daily Norseman:
Practice squad players are just that. . .guys that practice with the team. They don’t play...

CINCINNATI (AP) The Cincinnati Bengals put quarterback AJ McCarron on the injury list Saturday as they got down to the 53-man roster limit, making the fifth-round pick ineligible to practice for the first six weeks of the season.
McCarron missed training camp and the preseason with a sore shoulder.
The Bengals also terminated the contract of safety Danieal Manning and waived receiver...

Kyle Cook is no longer with the Bengals.
The seven-year veteran center had his contract terminated on Tuesday in a move that was unexpected but now opens the door for youngsters Trevor Robinson and T.J. Johnson as well as veteran Mike Pollak to compete for the position. Cook signed a five-year extension through the 2015 in September 2011 and started 50 of the last 52 games he played...

CINCINNATI Paul Alexander has always counted heavily on veterans. Alexander has been coaching the Bengals offensive line since 1994. Those first years he had Bruce Kozerski and Joe Walter around to help get his message across to younger players. Willie Anderson learned from them and passed down the process as he became the veteran.
That role is Andrew Whitworths.

The Bengals open their 2013 training camp July 25 at Paul Brown Stadium. The team has made the playoffs each of the last two seasons but each time it has been a short-lived trip to Houston for a disappointing end in an AFC wild card game.
The roster is in a solid state and there is no reason to think this team cant again make another push for the postseason but the expectations...
Over the past few days, I have taken a look at the positions that have significant needs to be addressed either through free agency or the draft. I put a poll with each to gauge your opinions on how the Bengals should approach each position. And you have spoken. With a little more info now that the Combine is complete, let’s recap.
Running Back: This position drew the strongest...
This season is easily divided into two chapters, split at the bye week. The first was awful and better left forgotten, marred by ineffectiveness and missed opportunities. Fortunately, the second chapter has featured what would seem to be a completely different. And that is the team that will be making the trip to Houston in a few days.
I’ve learned several things about this team...
Today the Bengals moved to assure depth along the offensive line in the wake of their short rental of place kicker Josh Brown. In case you missed it, Brown was signed earlier in the week to kick for Mike Nugent for one or two games after Nugent tweaked his calf muscle on his kicking leg in practice. To make room for Brown, the Bengals had released Center Jeff Faine.
The Bengals will rely on newly-signed Josh Brown for kicking duties this Sunday.
With reports surfacing this week that placekicker Mike “Don’t call me Ted” Nugent tweaked a calf muscle in practice this week, the Bengals reacted quickly with the signing of former Ram and Seahawk Josh Brown. According to the reports, including from one today from the mothership, the Bengals...
After getting whacked in the knee by my comrade DonnieRedboy yesterday (you’re still my bro, though!), I got to thinking about his comment that Dalton’s play in San Diego. He said: “The first thing that went wrong in SD was Dalton. He was not playing like the top caliber QB that he has been.” True, he did not look as sharp as he had in the previous three wins. That’s mainly...
Last week: 26 (+6)
The Bengals now stand at 5-5, but I won’t rule them out to be this year’s team that goes from in the playoffs to 5 wins or fewer. The Lions are the favorite and I also won’t rule out that we won’t have one this year, something that’s only happened once in the last decade. However, looking at the Bengals remaining schedule, they’re only definitely...
Rookie Trevor Robinson starts at center for the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, giving the New York Giants' defensive line an advantage.
Both Robinson and veteran center Jeff Faine have been bothered by hamstring injuries. They had to split time during a 31-23 loss to Denver last week.
Receiver Brandon Tate starts a second straight game for Armon Binns, bothered by an ankle injury...

Now that we are half-way through the preseason, it is time to take another look at how the roster is shaping up. We know quite a bit more than we did back in May when I did my second projection of who the 25 offensive players would be. Was I close? What has changed since then?
The biggest hit was seeing Wharton lost for the season. I will make an allowance for the possibility that...
With minicamp wrapped up, it is time to make an official update of the roster projections to kick off a discussion of how players are progressing. The end of minicamp marks the end of activities for the next 6 weeks until the start of training camp. So sound off about who you think ought to be moved up or down, and we will see who is right once camp gets going.
There ought to be...
It was less than two weeks ago that I took a look at the offensive line, and since then there have been a number of changes. Several guys are gone, and new guys have taken their places. So the group warrants another look so we can stay current with the updates.
