Bengals social media recap: Returning home for bye week

We take a look at how the Cincinnati Bengals spent their bye week.

The Cincinnati Bengals are now back in town and preparing to take on the Steelers. But, they've had the last week off, during which many of them returned home, traveled to their colleges or went on mini vacations. Here's a look around the players' social media accounts from the bye week to get an inside peek at the action.

Geno Atkins went to a haunted house on the bye week. Maybe he picked up some new tactics on how to scare offenses.

Rex Burkhead and his wife (and dog) went to Hocking Hills.

Andy Dalton and his wife attended a religious conference on the bye week.

Wallace Gilberry had his jersey number retired at his high school this weekend. He captioned this photo saying, "Two proud moments of my last happened night they retired my jersey #BCHS and got to share it with my little homie #likefatherlikeson".

Kevin Huber enjoyed some strawberry margaritas during his week off.

Jeremy Hill watched football on Sunday, just like the rest of us.

He obviously was rooting for his friends, former teammates and fantasy football team.

Hill also joined the growing trend of traveling by "hoverboard".
