Cincinnati Bengals' Jeremy Hill, Giovani Bernard looking for nicknames - ESPN
At the grand old age of 22, Giovani Bernard is the old man of the Cincinnati Bengals' two-man running back tandem. He's the more patient, more reserved and more reflective of the two. He likes to leap tall linebackers in a single bound and is quick to celebrate one of his many circus-like touchdown finishes by doling out high fives to his blockers. Jeremy Hill is the bigger, more noticeable, slightly more flashy of the two. He likes shimmy past defensive linemen and enjoys celebrating his touchdowns with a popular dance or a pose for his fans.
Pro Bowl receiver A.J. Green didn't practice on Wednesday because of an injured big toe on his right foot, limited to walking around the practice field in sweats holding a football. The Bengals haven't ruled him out for Sunday against Tennessee (1-1) at Paul Brown Stadium. They could sit him for the game, giving him an additional week to heal heading into Cincinnati's bye.
The Cincinnati Bengals look like one of the NFL's most complete teams as they have started with consecutive victories for the first time since beginning 3-0 in 2006. Andy Dalton has yet to throw an interception or get sacked, though his options could be limited this weekend.
The biggest addition to the Cincinnati Bengals' injury report Wednesday was linebacker Vontaze Burfict, who went on there after exhibiting concussion-like symptoms on a re-evaluation of an injury he received last Sunday.
The Cincinnati Bengals are already reaping the benefits of new offensive coordinator Hue Jackson and rookie running back Jeremy Hill, but the overreactions to just how good the Bengals really are this year after a 2-0 start may set expectations for the AFC North leader that are too hard to meet.
Cardinals running back Jonathan Dwyer, who was arrested today in a domestic violence incident, has been deactivated by the team. "We became aware of these allegations this afternoon when notified by Phoenix police and are cooperating fully," the Cardinals said in a statement.
For the second time today, a high-profile NFL player facing legal trouble has been banished from his team. Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy will, like Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, go on the commissioner's exempt list until is legal case has run its course.
