We're live blogging Bengals training camp day 8, which should be one of the more lively practices with a mock scrimmage and many fans in attendance for family day. If you're at Paul Brown Stadium today, we'd love to hear from you. Send us an email to If you're not, follow along here for live updates from camp.


1:10 p.m.: The first news out is good news!

1:15 p.m.: Practice will be getting started in about 15 minutes.

1:16 p.m.: Stretches have begun.

Whitworth will be taking a veteran's rest day today. Expect Jake Fisher to get more first team reps with that update.

1:17 p.m.: Adam Jones who got a rest day yesterday is back today. Cedric Peerman is seemingly out, per Geoff Hobson.

1:20 p.m: Proof of Jones being on the field and dressed:

1:23 p.m.: The players not playing today are basically who you'd expect with the addition on Cedric Peerman who's getting a veteran's rest day.

1:28 p.m.: Other reports are suggesting Cedric Peerman isn't getting a vet's day off, but that he took a big hit on Sunday that's he still recovering from.

1:29 p.m.: These are some big dudes.

1:32 p.m.: Rex Burkhead doesn't want you referring to him as a wide receiver, Hue Jackson would be mad at him if you did, he told the media yesterday. So with Marvin Jones back, how much Burkhead at WR will we see?

The Bengals are jazzing up practice today.

1:37 p.m.: The mock game has begun!

1:44 p.m.: Hobson is now reporting that Marvin Jones is not practicing though it appeared he was since he was in a jersey.

1:46 p.m.: The first Dalton update of the day.

1:48 p.m.: More on Jones who is indeed not playing.

1:49 p.m.: Undrafted defensive tackle Deshawn Williams is impressing today.

1:51 p.m.: Wallace Gilberry starting a fight?

While it might have been a "impressive slam" let's keep in mind these are teammates. Let's keep everyone safe!

1:57 p.m.: An early highlight of the day from Tyler Eifert who has been showing off his moves through all of camp.

2:02 p.m.: More good looks from Eifert:

2:07: More Dalton to Eifert action.

2:08: McCarron in with the first team now.

2:12 p.m.: Dalton and Eifert discussing their first touchdown of the day.

2:15 p.m.: McCarron and rookie WR Mario Alford connect for a touchdown.

McCarron is definitely showing improvement from the first few days of training camp as he gets in more reps and work.

2:24 p.m.: More favorable comments on McCarron:

2:25 p.m.: McCarron's drive ends with a field goal from UDFA rookie Tom Obarski, who we interviewed after his signing in May.

2:27 p.m.: Greg Little has been having a good training camp, despite most fans wanting to see him cut.

2:28 p.m.: The third quarter is about to begin.

2:29 p.m.: Rookie Derron Smith starts the third quarter off with a pick six.

2:40 p.m.: A potential injury to keep an eye on.

Though he does appear to be OK.

2:42 p.m.: After the Peters-Iloka collision, Marvin Lewis has called it a day. Tomorrow the team is off, so check back on Monday for our next live blog.
