Each report we hear suggests that the Bengals are hoping Rey Maualuga is ready to shift inward as an inside linebacker this season in multiple packages and formations. While Dhani Jones is expected to remain the team's starting middle linebacker, it wouldn't be a surprise much longer to see Maualuga replace Jones in certain formations and defensive packages while defensive end converted linebacker Michael Johnson shifts outward into a two-point stance as a strong-side linebacker.

However, like most of the aches and pains players receive during training camp -- an argument for shortening the preseason, training camp, etc.. -- Rey Maualuga will have to hold off on his continued development for now.

According to the Enquirer's Joe Reedy, Bengals linebacker Rey Maualuga "tweaked a hamstring midway through" Monday's evening practice. He's "listed as day-to-day."
