The Cincinnati Bengals will make their home debut tonight at 7 pm ET when they host the New York Jets at Paul Brown Stadium in the second game of Cincy’s 2014 preseason schedule. Several Bengals are in various stages of recovery from injuries, and may or may not be available to play against the Jets.
The latest on news on the injury front from around the web:
- Paul Dehner, Jr., reports on Cincinnati.com that quarterback A.J. McCarron continues to rehab his shoulder and likely will not play until well into the regular season.
- Jason Marcum at Cincy Jungle details the list of Bengals who were held out of practice this week and many be limited for the game today: LB Geno Atkins, CB Dre Kirkpatrick, RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis.
- Jason Campbell continues to recover from a bruised elbow suffered against the Kansas City Chiefs last week.
Campbell’s injury and poor performance last week prompted the Bengals to sign free agent QB Tyler Wilson on August 9, and the former Oakland Raider and Tennessee Titan will likely see action against the Jets today.
It’s still early in the preseason, which means the goals for Marvin Lewis’ team will be to continue evaluating players at key spots (LB, backup WR, etc.), firm up the schemes of new coordinators on both offense and defense, and try to avoid further injuries. We’ll probably see more of the first team units than we did last week, but don’t expect more than a couple of series for starting QB Andy Dalton.
