The full Bengals team hit the field as a group for the first time in 2012 on Tuesday. Though the activities were limited and they aren't in pads, there was quite a bit of news.

On the injury front, Jordan Shipley, Roddrick Muckleroy, and Leon Hall were on the field in various capacities, attempting to bounce back from their season-ending injuries from 2011. Nate Clements and Dre Kirkpatrick didn't work out due to some muscle pulls.

Performance-wise, George Iloka stood out in drills on Tuesday, and there were a couple of surprises like Brandon Tate getting looks as the starter at wide receiver.

Talk about it.
