Bengals wide receiver Jordan Shipley reportedly ran routes last week when the media was allowed to observe Cincinnati's first OTA session. Following Tuesday's practice (today) in which he participated during team drills, Shipley admitted that while he's been medically cleared, he's still not 100 percent.

"It's not 100 percent, but I'm getting closer," Shipley said after he participated in some 11-on-11 work. "There's still a ways to go….It's just a natural part of it. I'm getting stronger and stronger. It's a significant injury. Right now I'm just (focusing on) jumping and getting in and out of my breaks real fast. That's the main thing I have to fine tune right now."

Shipley is projected as the team's No. 1 slot receiver, with varying competition from Andrew Hawkins, Ryan Whalen and possibly Mohamed Sanu, who is well-known for being as versatile as anyone. Shipley is expected to be 100 percent when the team kickoffs off training camp in two months.
