John Ross (groin) remained limited at Thursday's practice.

Ross played through the injury last week and should be fine for Sunday's game in Baltimore. With A.J. Green (toe) likely to miss another game, the second-year speedster could be relied on more heavily this week.

Joe Mixon (knee) was limited at Thursday's practice.

He was not listed on Wednesday's injury report. Mixon may have aggravated a knee injury he suffered earlier this year. It's too early to speculate on his status for Sunday's game in Baltimore, though late-week additions to the injury report are never a good sign.

Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict (hip) is practicing Thursday.

He also got in a limited session Wednesday. These practices suggest Burfict will be ready to face the Ravens barring any setbacks. It is good news with both Preston Brown (knee) and Nick Vigil (knee) looking likely to sit.

Bengals LB Preston Brown (knee) did not practice Thursday.

He also sat out Wednesday. With Nick Vigil (knee) not ready to return, the already thin Bengals linebacking corps could be even worse off this week. In better news, Vontaze Burfict (hip) practiced Wednesday and Thursday.

Bengals LB Nick Vigil (knee) did not practice Thursday.

Vigil was expected to miss "about a month" went he went down with a sprained MCL about a month ago, but it looks like he is still a week or two away. The good news for the Bengals is Vontaze Burfict (hip) got in a limited practice Wednesday and is practicing again on Thursday.

A.J. Green (toe) did not practice Thursday.

Coach Marvin Lewis said he hopes Green will return this week, but that seems like a longshot. ESPN's Adam Schefter has reported it is "increasingly likely" Green will be sidelined into December. Tyler Boyd and John Ross will be Andy Dalton's top targets while Green is sidelined.

John Ross (groin) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

It's a downgrade after Ross practiced fully last week. We didn't see Ross suffer any setbacks in Sunday's game. The Bengals are likely managing reps.
Nov 14 - 3:30 PM

Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said he hopes to have A.J. Green (toe) for Sunday's game with Baltimore.

This may just be coachspeak from Lewis. Green didn't practice Wednesday after sitting out last week. Most reports have him missing at least one more game. It's a longshot Green returns Sunday, but with their playoff chances dwindling, it's possible the Bengals could push Green at less than 100 percent.
Nov 14 - 3:19 PM

Bengals designated CB Davontae Harris (knee) to return from injured reserve.

A fifth round pick, Harris missed the first 10 weeks after going down in the preseason finale. He'll give a struggling Bengals' some added depth.

Bengals hired Hue Jackson as a special assistant to the head coach.

With Marvin Lewis taking over defensive coordinator duties, he needed some help, and Jackson is an old pal. "I have a great comfort level with Hue and his ability to assist me with the day-to-day responsibilities on defense," Lewis said, "including analyzing our opponents and helping me on game days with the players and defensive coaches." Jackson spent seven seasons across two separate stints with Lewis in Cincinnati.
Nov 13 - 8:58 AM

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports the Bengals are considering bringing back ex-Browns coach Hue Jackson to rejoin coach Marvin Lewis' staff.

That's the word around town, and Lewis didn't shoot it down on Monday. Jackson was on Lewis' staff in Cincinnati from 2004-06 as WRs coach and again from 2012-15 in various roles before landing the Browns' gig. Lewis wants to focus more on the defense in the second half of the season, and Jackson could help OC Bill Lazor out on that side of the ball. We're not sure how much "help" Jackson would ultimately provide, but he and Lewis are longtime friends. That trumps all.

Bengals coach Marvin Lewis will take over defensive coordinator responsibilities following the firing of Teryl Austin.

Former Saints coach Jim Haslett will play a bigger role on defense, but it sounds like Lewis will take over as the primary game planner and play caller for the rest of the season. Before landing the head coaching job in Cincinnati way back in 2003, Lewis was considered one of the best defensive coordinators in the league.

C.J. Uzomah caught 3-of-4 targets for 23 yards in Sunday's Week 10 loss to the Saints.

With A.J. Green out of the lineup, there was hope that Uzomah would have a larger role in the Bengals offense, but that didn't happen. Uzomah now has three of fewer catches in every game but one on the season and has just five catches for 36 yards over his past three games. Uzomah is a low-level TE2 as the Bengals head to Baltimore in Week 11.
Nov 11 - 4:26 PM

John Ross caught 2-of-6 targets for 39 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 10 loss to the Saints.

Despite, catching just two passes, Ross led the Bengals in targets in their first game without A.J. Green. Ross provided the lone touchdown for the Bengals on their opening drive of the game, securing a 2-yard touchdown when he came across the back of the end zone. He added a 37-yard catch and run later in the game, but suffered the same fate as the entire Bengals offense as Cincinnati did next to nothing for the rest of the game. Ross has just nine catches on the season, but will be needed to step up with Green expected to miss at least Week 11 at minimum. Ross will only be a desperation option next week at Baltimore.
Nov 11 - 4:22 PM

Tyler Boyd caught 3-of-4 targets for 65 yards in Sunday's Week 10 loss to the Saints.

In his first game without A.J. Green, Boyd matched season lows in targets and receptions as he was torpedoed by the inept Cincinnati offense, something we've now seen happen twice over their past three games. Boyd started off on the right foot, catching a 23-yard pass on the second play of the game, but the Bengals offense just fell apart after that opening drive. Despite the down day, Boyd will still be a WR2 option in Week 11 against the Ravens.
