Bengals Training Camp 2013: Day Nine Recap

New, comments

For the first time this offseason, the Bengals practiced outside of Cincinnati. We've gathered some updates to recap their afternoon with the Falcons in Flowery Branch, Georgia.

The Bengals participated in a joint practice with the Atlanta Falcons on Monday as both teams prepare to face one another in their first preseason game of 2013. Since practice took place in Flowery Branch, Georgia, we didn't have any Cincy Jungle staff members attending and reporting the day's events. We turned to Twitter to gather updates for our readers.

Before we run through Monday's recap, it's important to note that Vincent Rey suffered a knee injury today. The full extent of the injury is unknown, but he was on his feet watching practice after it occurred. It is believed to be a knee ligament sprain.

  • NFL Network's Albert Breer was attending Monday's practice. Both he and the Enquirer's Paul Dehner Jr. offered a photo at the start of practice.

  • The day began with special teams as Kevin Huber punted to the Falcons, and it didn't take long for things to get a little tense on the field.

  • As both teams separated to work on individual drills, a familiar face dropped by to visit with his former teams.

The former offensive coordinator for the Bengals was let go by the Jacksonville Jaguars after the 2012 season led by head coach Mike Mularkey resulted in a 2-14 record. Bratkowski also spent the 2011 season as the Falcons quarterback coach after being offensive coordinator on the 4-12 Bengals squad of 2010.

  • As practice moved forward, several highlights and standout players emerged during the afternoon. I've included some updates from Atlanta Journal Constitutional's D. Orlando Ledbetter.

  • At the end of the day, the practice seemed to be enjoyable to the players and coaches as they enjoyed the friendly competition.

The Bengals have one more practice on Tuesday before preparing for Thursday's preseason match.
