In an interesting change of scenery for the Cincinnati Bengals and Training Camp, they are mixing it up with the Atlanta Falcons in practice this week. The two teams square off in their preseason opener on Thursday Night and will be aired on ESPN.
Unfortunately, the Bengals seemed to have suffered another injury setback during Monday's session. Linebacker and special teams ace, Vincent Rey, suffered a knee sprain. The Bengals beat men, Joe Reedy of The Cincinnati Enquirer and Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com, gave us the scoop.

We're running with Reedy's report for now and we aren't sure of the time frame of Rey's return. Hobson later reported some good news about the injury when he saw Rey walking around on his own.

The team has managed to escape some serious scares in the first week-plus of camp, but they could be flirting with disaster at some point. Let's hope that they aren't added to the list of teams losing big-time contributors this year.
We'll update more as we hear it with Rey's injury.
