Bengals on Twitter
Bengals placed TE Mason Schreck on injured reserve with a knee injury, ending his season.
Analysis: TE Jordan Franks has been promoted from the practice squad in the corresponding roster move. Schreck is the third Bengals tight end to get injured this season. Hold on to your C.J. Uzomahs tight.
John Ross
John Ross out a 'few weeks' with groin injury

Mike Garafolo on Twitter
NFL.com's Mike Garofolo reports John Ross (groin) will be sidelined "a few weeks."
Analysis: Ross aggravated an existing groin ailment in Week 7. The No. 9 overall pick of the 2017 draft simply cannot stay healthy. Ross has seven career catches.
C.J. Uzomah
C.J. Uzomah finds end-zone in Week 7
Sun, Oct 21, 2018, 10:56 PM
C.J. Uzomah caught two passes for 13 yards and a touchdown in Week 7 against the Chiefs.
Analysis: Uzomah caught Andy Dalton's only touchdown on a play that capped off a 77-yard second quarter drive. It was his only notable play of the night. Uzomah has been a plug-and-play TE1 since Tyler Eifert went down. He has a plus matchup with the Bucs in Week 8.
Tyler Boyd
Tyler Boyd has quiet game
Sun, Oct 21, 2018, 10:49 PM
Tyler Boyd caught 2-of-4 passes for 27 yards in Week 7 against the Chiefs.
Analysis: Boyd was invisible in the first half, getting held without a catch. He managed to get some targets late with the Bengals airing it out, but it's a disappointing game. Boyd has been held under 50 yards in two of the last three weeks. He'll be a low-end WR2 for Week 8 against the Bucs.
A.J. Green
A.J. Green goes over 100 yards in Week 7
Sun, Oct 21, 2018, 10:43 PM
A.J. Green caught 7-of-14 targets for 117 yards in Week 7 against the Chiefs.
Analysis: Green had over 100 yards in the first half. He was a huge mismatch for Orlando Scandrick, but the Bengals struggled to sustain drives all night. Green had a near-touchdown but tripped and was tackled inside the five-yard line. He faded in the second half, finishing with just one catch over the final two quarters. Green be a WR1 for Week 8's matchup with the Bucs.
Joe Mixon
Joe Mixon held to 50 yards vs Chiefs
Sun, Oct 21, 2018, 10:41 PM
Joe Mixon rushed 13 times for 50 yards in Week 7 against the Chiefs.
Analysis: Mixon continued to rarely leave the field with Giovanni Bernard sidelined. He fell victim to gameflow with the Bengals playing from behind but still managed a solid per-carry average. Mixon had some of his better runs called back on penalties. With Bernard likely at least another week away, Mixon is locked into another heavy workload in Week 8 against the Bucs.
Andy Dalton
Dalton hits season lows in Week 7
Sun, Oct 21, 2018, 10:33 PM
Andy Dalton completed 15-of-29 passes for 148 yards with a touchdown and an interception in Week 7 against Kansas City.
Analysis: The Bengals got off to a sluggish start, but Dalton managed a first-quarter touchdown to C.J. Uzomah. He telegraphed a pick-six on the first drive of second half and couldn't get anything going after that. It's one of the worst starts of the season for Dalton, who's had multiple TDs in 5-of-7 games. Dalton has a rebound matchup with the Bucs in Week 8
John Ross
John Ross suffers setback in Week 7
Sun, Oct 21, 2018, 10:20 PM
John Ross left Week 7 against the Chiefs with a groin injury.
Analysis: This is the same injury that sidelined Ross the last two games. Ross is likely to miss more time with his latest setback.
Vontaze Burfict
Vontaze Burfict suffers hip injury
Sun, Oct 21, 2018, 9:49 PM
Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict suffered a hip injury in Week 7 against the Chiefs.
Analysis: He's done for the game. Burfict was limping badly, so he's likely going to miss practice time this week. Jordan Evans is Burfict's backup.
C.J. Uzomah
C.J. Uzomah active for Sunday night
Sun, Oct 21, 2018, 5:59 PM
C.J. Uzomah (shoulder) is active for Week 7 against the Chiefs.
Analysis: Uzomah's status wasn't in doubt after he was removed from the injury report. The Bengals inactives are CB Darqueze Dennard, RB Giovani Bernard , C Billy Price , LB Nick Vigil, TE Tyler Kroft, WR Josh Malone, and DT Josh Tupou.
C.J. Uzomah
Uzomah (shoulder) removed from injury report
Fri, Oct 19, 2018, 3:29 PM
chiefs.com
C.J. Uzomah (shoulder) wasn't listed on the Bengals' final injury report for Week 7 against the Chiefs.
Analysis: He was upgraded to full participation at Friday's practice after being limited earlier in the week. Uzomah drew a season-high seven targets in last week's loss to Pittsburgh and should continue to play an active role in the Bengals' passing game sans Tyler Eifert (I.R., ankle). He'll be an intriguing streamer Sunday night against Kansas City's Swiss cheese secondary.
Giovani Bernard
Giovani Bernard (knee) out another week
Fri, Oct 19, 2018, 11:24 AM
Giovani Bernard (knee) is out for Week 7 against the Chiefs.
Analysis: It'll again be Mark Walton in the lightly-used changeup spot behind Joe Mixon.
C.J. Uzomah
C.J. Uzomah practicing again Thursday

Jay Morrison on Twitter
C.J. Uzomah (shoulder) is practicing Thursday.
Analysis: He will likely be listed as limited again, but two practices in a row to start the week suggest he will be fine to face the Chiefs on Sunday night. In a great matchup, he will be a back-end TE1.
Giovani Bernard
Giovani Bernard (knee) out again Thursday

Giovani Bernard (knee) did not practice Thursday.
Giovani Bernard
Giovani Bernard headed for another absence

Giovani Bernard (knee) remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice.
John Ross
John Ross (groin) to return Sunday night
Wed, Oct 17, 2018, 3:23 PM
bengals.com
John Ross (groin) is practicing in full for Week 7 against the Chiefs.
Analysis: Ross was limited at last week's practices before sitting out against Pittsburgh. He should be available this week, though the 2017 first-rounder isn't someone fantasy owners can count on yet.
C.J. Uzomah
Uzomah (shoulder) limited to start the week
Wed, Oct 17, 2018, 3:11 PM
Jay Morrison on Twitter
C.J. Uzomah (shoulder) was limited at Wednesday's practice.
Andy Dalton
Andy Dalton (back) on track for Week 7
Wed, Oct 17, 2018, 3:09 PM
Geoff Hobson on Twitter
Andy Dalton (back) is practicing in full for Week 7 against the Chiefs.
Analysis: Evidently Dalton hurt his back during Sunday's loss to Pittsburgh but obviously the injury isn't serious. Dalton wasn't at his best last week, but he should bounce back against a lackluster Chiefs secondary on Sunday night.
Tyler Kroft
Bengals expect Tyler Kroft back this season
Mon, Oct 15, 2018, 2:43 PM
Geoff Hobson on Twitter
The Bengals expect Tyler Kroft (foot) to return this season.
Analysis: It's odd wording from coach Marvin Lewis, as Kroft has not been placed on injured reserve. It would appear Kroft is more "out indefinitely" than week to week. C.J. Uzomah is holding down the fort in Kroft and Tyler Eifert's absence.
Nick Vigil
Bengals LB Nick Vigil (knee) out a month
Mon, Oct 15, 2018, 11:59 AM
Ian Rapoport on Twitter
Bengals LB Nick Vigil is expected to miss "about a month" with a sprained MCL.
Analysis: Vigil went down early in the loss to the Steelers and never returned. Vinny Rey should get more work with Vigil sidelined.
