John Ross steps up work at Bengals practice

Monday, August 14th, 2017

The Bengals have brought first-round pick John Ross along slowly this summer after he had shoulder surgery this offseason, but it looks like they are ready to start taking the remaining wraps off the wide receiver. According to multiple reports from Bengals camp, Ross was in full pads and participated in 1-on-1 drills with cornerbacks and 11-on-11 full team drills for the first time this summer. In addition to rehabbing his shoulder, Ross was also kept from attending most of the team’s offseason program because of the NFL rule requiring players to wait until their school’s term is over before they can practice.

Roberto Aguayo is missing kicks again and the Buccaneers might cut him

Friday, August 11th, 2017

Roberto Aguayo’s rough rookie season convinced the Tampa Bay Buccaneers that a kicker competition in 2017 would be a good idea. Aguayo’s struggles Friday night aren’t a good sign for his future with the team. The second-year kicker had three chances to impress against the Cincinnati Bengals, but missed an extra point early in the game and a 47-yard field goal attempt with one minute left in the fourth quarter. His only make was a 20-yard chip shot in the first quarter. Meanwhile, his competition did well with his only opportunity. In the third quarter, Nick Folk nailed a 45-yard field goal. Aguayo entered the game ahead of Folk on the team’s depth chart, but that may not be the case when the

Former Bengals LB Schaffer gets jail for indecent exposure

Friday, August 11th, 2017

Former Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Jerome Schaffer has been sentenced to 180 days in jail on misdemeanor assault and indecent exposure charges, a sentence his attorney hopes will be reduced to probation at a hearing later this month. A Butler County Court judge on Thursday agreed to delay imposing Schaffer's sentence until Aug. 31, attorney Mike Allen said. Schaffer, 26, pleaded no contest to the charges in June. Authorities have said Schaffer was apparently under the influence of drugs when he was arrested in February after he got into a fight, tried to break into cars and exposed himself in a church parking lot. Schaffer has been doing well since his arrest, Allen said. He entered an inpatient

Joe Mixon continues to impress Marvin Lewis

Wednesday, August 9th, 2017

The Bengals like what they have seen from Joe Mixon, and Marvin Lewis isn’t shy about sharing the fact that the rookie running back will get plenty of chances this season. “His personality, his work ethic, how he comes and approaches practice every day,” Lewis said, via Geoff Hobson of the team website. “From the very first rookie camp here in Cincinnati, you felt that, but you aren’t sure because it’s a very limited exposure.

Bengals’ Marvin Lewis back after having knee checked

Wednesday, August 9th, 2017

Coach Marvin Lewis was back with the Bengals on Wednesday after missing a practice to have a knee problem checked. Lewis had scans on a swollen knee Tuesday at the hospital. He plans to coach the Bengals' preseason opener at Paul Brown Stadium on Friday against Tampa Bay. Doctors told him that walking would help reduce the swelling, so he won't be limited on the sideline. Lewis, 58, is entering his 15th season with the Bengals and the final year on his contract. He led the Bengals to five straight playoff appearances from 2011-15, but has failed to win a playoff game, going 0-7 during his tenure. No other NFL coach has lost his first seven playoff games.

Saban: Da’Shawn Hand will not be suspended if he does what is asked

Thursday, August 3rd, 2017

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (WIAT)- The first day of Alabama fall camp gave some clarity on one burning question surrounding the team. What punishment will defensive lineman Da’Shawn Hand receive? Nick Saban addressed Hand’s DUI from last weekend. “If he does everything that he’s supposed to do he will not be suspended,” Saban said,.”We’re helping the player. If he would have drove the car it would be a totally different circumstance.” Hand was arrested at 4:30 in the morning, asleep with the keys in the ignition. “The fact he didn’t drive the car and wasn’t driving the car and did not put other people at risk, (that) is the most significant thing when you drive under the influence,” Saban said. Hand was
