underway tonight at Paul Brown Stadium at 7pm ET. Cincinnati comes home for their first home game after an outstanding win in Atlanta last weekend.

If you are going to the game plan on seeing the starters for one or two series, after that it is full back up plan for the Bengals. Quarterback Andy Dalton will likely see two series before handing the reins over to back up Josh Johnson who has impressed the coaches in training camp. John Skelton was impressive from a stats standpoint last week but anyone that watches “Hard Knocks” knows the coaches aren’t sold on Skelton yet.

Wide Receiver AJ Green will not see any action tonight same goes for Andrew Whitworth, Carlos Dunlap and Michael Johnson. Fortunately for the Bengals none of these injuries are season ending so all will be ready to go for the start of the season in Chicago.

With the amount of guys sitting out others will get more snaps. One player that will get more plays will be former UC Bearcats standout JK Schaffer who will likely get more plays at linebacker tonight. Schaffer is a worker and will continue to solidify his spot on the roster.

Players to watch tonight, Orson Charles at FB, Giovanni Bernard will try to continue his impressive training camp tonight. The big Estonian Margus Hunt will look to sharpen his skills, to quote Mike Zimmer “He looks like JJ Watt” we’ll see of that comes true.

If you are looking to tune into the game tonight you can at 11:35 on Local 12. The game will not be shown live, either attend the game or listen on 700wlw, those are your best options for live action.
