Palmer update, Graham helps raise money, other notes

Bengals place kicker, Shane Graham is as classy guy.

More than 8,000 walkers from Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky who participated in WalkAmerica 2006 April 30 raised $800,000.

The money supports the March of Dimes' mission of preventing birth defects, premature births and infant mortality.

Cincinnati Bengals kicker Shayne Graham, who served as honorary chairman, said, "I was honored to have participated in this event and to have been among so many dedicated and caring people committed to saving babies.''

Both Geoff Hobson and Chick Ludwig report a lot of optimism for Carson to start on opening day.
Palmer and his medical and rehab team still don't have a date when he'll be cleared for team activity following his Jan. 10 reconstructive left knee surgery. He doubts it is going to be before the July 29 start of training camp. But if he's being conservative with it, there is also cautious optimism he'll be cleared for training camp in time to keep the Opening Day goal alive. No one as of yet has taken the opener off the table, and he says he hasn't had to be eased off his rehab.
Defensive tackle, and sounding like defensive end too now, Bryan Robinson says the defense will help the offense this year.
"Our offense did a lot to help us out last year," Robinson said. "We want to take on that role this year."
If anything, we know that Chad's confidence is still as high as it gets.
