The question after the Bengals 38-7 preseason finale win over the Indianapolis Colts is, who separated themselves just enough to claim a roster spot on the team. Running back is the most intriguing. Do you keep Brian Leonard, who is the only running back to score rushing touchdowns during the entire preseason (2). Leonard rushed for 64 yards on nine carries against the Colts Thursday. The only guy to pick up more yards was DeDe Dorsey, who rushed for 68 yards. Does Bernard Scott enter the discussion or do you agree with me that he's a lock?
What about Frostee Rucker, who played one game heading into Thursday's game, finishing with a sack, forced fumble in which he recovered? Did Morgan Trent's five tackles and one forced fumble elevate him enough to challenge David Jones for the third cornerback. What about Geoffrey Pope? Did Pat Sims play well enough to get promoted as the team's starting defensive tackle opposite Domata Peko. I think at least it should be considered.
Did anyone close the gap, separating themselves from those that battled for spots on the roster tonight?
