Hill finishes off preseason strong, decision on Green-Ellis looms for Bengals

CINCINNATI -- Jeremy Hill wasn't drafted in the second round to sit. BenJarvus Green-Ellis has served the Bengals well for the past two seasons, doing much of the dirty work required of a running back, grinding out more than 1,800 yards. Flash is not the style of runners like Green-Ellis or Hill. That's the domain of the Giovani Bernards of the world. Bernard is going to...

Browns end preseason on a high note, but are they ready for the real thing?

CLEVELAND -- Ready or not, here comes the regular season. Ready? Or not? We won't know until Sept. 7, but the Cleveland Browns at very least got some good work and created some good vibes in Thursday night's preseason finale. Because they needed that work, the offensive starters for the Browns played one series. They got a little of everything in that series, and most importantly...

Browns postgame notebook: Veteran WR Burleson makes his case for roster spot

CLEVELAND -- Veteran wide receiver Nate Burleson did what he could to state his case with regards to making the Browns final roster. The question is was it enough?

Bengals beat Colts 35-7 in game devoid of starters

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Andy Dalton practiced some drop kicks in shorts before the game, the most activity he got all night. And he was in the majority when it came to spending time standing around.

Everyone watching as Barrett takes over for Miller

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- There are a lot of ways to describe J.T. Barrett's new, amplified role for Ohio State. His teammates and coaches say Barrett has taken over as No. 5 Ohio State's starting quarterback as if that were the plan all along. It wasn't, of course. Barrett, a freshman, got the job when two-time Big Ten player of the year Braxton Miller reinjured his throwing...

Savvy Axelrod has impressed Reds in two starts

CINCINNATI -- Dylan Axelrod's first two innings didn't foretell of a very long or very successful afternoon. It took him 58 pitches to dispatch of the first nine Chicago Cubs he faced and although he had kept the Cubs off the scoreboard he had to work extra to do so. Axelrod's day lasted just five innings but they were five shutout innings as he earned his first win with...

Ohio State Buckeyes expect Navy's offense to be a handful

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- It's already difficult enough to play Navy because of the tough, dedicated and disciplined players demanded by any service academy.

Price sees throwback style in current state of baseball

CINCINNATI -- Manager Bryan Price and his staff thought they were prepared for the debut with the Chicago Cubs of Cuban defector Jorge Soler. They had done their research, checked their scouting reports, did all their due diligence. Then, on Wednesday night, in his first major league at-bat, Soler exploded a 425-foot home run. And on his third at-bat he lined a single to left field...

What to watch in Browns preseason finale

CLEVELAND - The best thing that's happened to the Cleveland Browns in two weeks is coach Mike Pettine getting word from the medical staff that cornerback Buster Skrine should be cleared from his thumb surgery in time to play in the Sept. 7 season opener. Seriously. The Browns have been bad on the field. Off the field, Thursday brought the official verdict that Josh Gordon is...

Work it out: Johnny Football shows off new persona in Snickers spot

Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel has racked up an array of nicknames this summer -- just about everything he does earns him some sort of moniker placed after his first name. There's been Johnny Vegas (following his much scrutinized Memorial Day trip to Las Vegas), Johnny Finger (after his flipping of the bird during a preseason game) and, most recently, Johnny Clipboard...

Negron's little hustle is big difference in Reds' win

CINCINNATI -- A little hustle will do you well. It did the Reds well Wednesday night. A little hustle was a big difference in a 7-5 victory against the Chicago Cubs. A little hustle by Kristopher Negron set the stage for a four-run fourth inning for the Reds. Too much self-admiration by Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro denied his team a chance at tying the game up in the eighth inning...

First Ohio State depth chart leaves some questions

After some delay, Ohio State released its first official depth chart of the season Wednesday, three days ahead of the Buckeyes' season opener against Navy in Baltimore.  While these often must be taken with a grain of salt because playing time remains up to the whim of the coaching staff, nearly one third of the positions on offense and defense had more than one player listed...
