+ Huge turn out for the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday with over 2,000 fans filling capacity. At one point during practice, the team had to hold fans at the gates, allowing them in only after other people had left.

+ No major injuries happened (that we're aware of), but Marvin Jones took a break during practice after coming off the field with a slight limp.

+ The team did their traditional Oklahoma dill on Sunday, which was also shown on the NFL Network. Players like Shawn Williams, Orson Charles, Margus Hunt were good. But arguably the biggest star was Jermaine Gresham beating Geno Atkins and James Harrison. Charles won three matchups. You can see some of the video that our crew took at practice. However, Oklahoma drills have traditional led to sloppy practices.

Jay Morrison with the Dayton Daily News breaks down the round-by-round results. As did Joe Reedy with the Cincinnati Enquirer.

+ Bengals offensive tackle Andrew Whitworth and offensive guard Clint Boling joined Andre Smith on the sidelines Sunday. Whitworth and Boling had offseason procedures and the team wanted to rest both players. Whitworth was still very active, helping/instructing offensive tackles during one-on-one blocking drills.

The first-team offensive line on Sunday was Dennis Roland at right tackle, Mike Pollak at left guard, and Anthony Collins at right tackle. Kevin Zeitler and Kyle Cook were playing their customary spots at right guard and center respectively.

+ Dre Kirkpatrick worked with the third-team defense alongside Shaun Prater. Brandon Ghee moved up to the second team with Adam Jones. Leon Hall and Terence Newman remain the first-team cornerbacks. Ghee had a nice play, alongside Taylor Mays.

+ The first team defense was mostly the same from Saturday. Carlos Dunlap and Michael Johnson at defensive end, Geno Atkins and Domata Peko at defensive tackle, Rey Maualuga, Vontaze Burfict, and James Harrison at linebacker and Hall, Newman, Reggie Nelson and George Iloka in the secondary. Iloka was the only change. It didn't last long though. Shawn Williams rotated in later during the team's second 11-on-11 session.

+ Punt returners on Sunday were Adam Jones, Andrew Hawkins, Giovani Bernard, and Marvin Jones. Normal returner Brandon Tate remains on PUP.

+ A couple of notes from our crew at Paul Brown Stadium (and others).
