Defensive end Robert Geathers appeared to be the first injury of Cincinnati's training camp this year when he left practice after twisting his knee on Friday. Though he's not expected to practice on Saturday, Geathers doesn't believe the injury is serious. Marvin Lewis called it a "tweak" and that all tests came back negative, saying that Geathers will "rest but should be fine."

Head coach Marvin Lewis also told reporters on Saturday that the players listed on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list should return "in short order", tweets Joe Reedy with the Cincinnati Enquirer. The players currently on PUP are cornerback Nate Clements (abdominal), wide receiver Jordan Shipley (knee), defensive tackle Pat Sims (hamstring) and place-kicker Mike Nugent (hamstring).

Cornerback Leon Hall told reporters Friday after practice this while his technique was rusty, overall his Achilles felt fine. The day after and Hall says that his foot is "surprisingly not sore."

The Bengals second practice of training camp is scheduled to start at 3:15 PM. The latest update from the team is that there's still plenty of tickets for fans to watch practice.
